Why in the Gray Muzzle products is there dried poultry liver flavor instead of a specific poultry?
From a health point of view, protein levels need to be lower in senior dogs and cats. The dried poultry liver flavor was used to increase palatability and keep the protein levels low. Susan Weiss recommended reviewing senior pet foods and you’ll notice a lower protein level. The ingredient is listed as “dried poultry liver flavor” on the ingredient panel because that is the AAFCO definition and we must list ingredients exactly as AAFCO rules.

My 15 yo started acting confused and was pacing nonstop. Desperate, I looked for something to help. Started these and after about a week, she improved dramatically. She acted happy to see me again after just staring at me blankly before. She's more like her old self, but not 100%. She is still pacing at times, but not for hours at a time. Hopefully she will continue to improve.

I only gave these four stars because it is too soon to determine if they make a difference in my 10 year old boy's memory health. He loves them, so I know they are very tasty. There aren't a lot of choices out there when you're searching for something to give your dog if you suspect memory issues. I'll follow up in time whether this treat seems to be making a difference.

We had noticed some cognitive problems in our nearly 15 year old pup. While not officially diagnosed, she was showing signs of “doggy dementia.” Her anxiety seemed to be worse, too, in her twilight years. I found these and thought I’d give them a try. She finds these to be tasty and seems to be generally less anxious and more like herself. I will continue buying them, if nothing else, just because she enjoys them.
They LOVE their treats

I received this product “complimentary" for testing purposes. I can honestly say my dogs both of adult age, loved these treats. I mean, what dogs don’t love treats; but I actually tested them. I would lay one of their regular milkbone biscuit treats in front of them as well as laying the recommended serving size of the ark naturals treats right next to their biscuits. Every time they choose Ark Naturals. I can’t give information about how well they work or don’t, as my dogs can’t tell me. I did however notice that they were more content and maintained a calmer demeanor when we had company. Scooby usually is hyper when company comes over. After regularly giving him these as treats daily, the I received this product “complimentary" for testing purposes. I can honestly say my dogs both of adult age, loved these treats.

I love the ingredients and what is supposed to happen to help my pups with this product. I have two senior pups who were just not interested trying a new treat. I was given them free for my review.
Old girl loves them!
on Jun 1, 2021
I recieved these for free and cannot stop talking about them. My senior dog loves them and I started to see results almost immediately. She's a lab/shepherd mix and is almost 13 years old. Sometimes she looks a bit confused especially when someone comes in the house (people who live here), even me. After we started these she seems to realize and recognize who are without barking or getting riled up.
Dogs can't get enough!

*I received these treats free for an honest review.*
I have 2 senior dogs so it was a great product to try. They love them! Of course I won't complain with it being beneficial for their health. Also made in the USA! I like that they're smaller so I can use them to work on a couple commands.

My old girl has been struggling lately. A lot of fear and anxiety. From the 2nd dose she seemed more confident. I’m glad I tried Brains Best Friends. Everyday she seems happier. A lot like her old self. She is now a 13year and hopefully I will be able to keep her happy for a while longer. Thank you

These are so small that my dog doesn’t chew them. He likes them a lot but I’m worried he will choke. Also I don’t know if there is any relation, but as soon as I started giving him these treats he began losing a lot of fur. Has anyone experienced the same problem? He is a non shedding dog/has very minimal shedding but this was a lot of fur for him to lose. Small clumps of hair at bath time. Again I don’t know if there is a relation but I have discontinued these and the shedding has nearly stopped...
Quality Ingredients in a small chewy treat
on Jun 3, 2021
I am really happy with the ingredients in these treats. But the best part is they are good for any dog of any size. I have a senior chihuahua that has a very hard time chewing and anything she eats has to be very soft. I didn't have to worry about that at all with these chews. They are very small, soft, and chewy.
