Frequently Asked Questions
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 oldest (and smallest!) dog Smoochie loves this treat/supplement. It seems to have helped her, she more alert and when it's bed time she seems to be able to find her bed better...before she would often stop in front of the dresser just staring at it like she was lost. Smoochie is somewhere between 18-20 years old.
Tasty and helpful

My 11.5yr old lab had started staring off and barking at nothing. Since starting this product these behaviors have definitely decreased. She is my heart and soul!!! Unfortunately, you can't turn back time but anything that helps is worth it
I see a marked improvement.

My elderly, blind, deaf, pug, Freddy (who also suffers from mega-esophagus and mobility problems) began having having happiness issues. He didn't seem to be in pain but life ceased to have joy; no happy-dog celebrations in the morning and "grumbling" irritably at times. He also began to be apprehensive. As a hyper-vigilant person, his unease would awaken me 3-4 times per night, I would comfort him until he slept. It seemed to be time to have our Vet come and end his unhappiness..
I remembered his Thundershirt and put him in it and he slept through the night. I also started feeding him Memory Health. In the last 3 weeks, Freddy is back to his amazingly happy self.

I remembered his Thundershirt and put him in it and he slept through the night. I also started feeding him Memory Health. In the last 3 weeks, Freddy is back to his amazingly happy self. He doesn't need his Thundershirt to be content and he rolls around, nuzzling me happily when he awakens. I still have to hand-feed him and spend a lot of lap-time every day but he is (for now) back to enjoying his life as a tyrant, ordering me around. I can spend more time with our other Pugs, Miss Kitty and Mildred.… more

I have an aging border collie cross who I thought could benefit from these treats/supplements. He has started to slow down physically so if I could help him retain his mental capabilities, I wanted to at least try! I have not noticed anything miraculous but I'd think something like this would take a while to kick in. I will reorder and give it some more time. He's so worth the attempt and because the ingredients are natural, I'm not worried about any negative after effects.
Have seen a change after 2 weeks

I have seen a change in my 13 year old American Bulldog since using this product. For the first time in more than a year she explored the back yard and was interested enough to go all the way to the back corner.
Old dog -new tricks

It has been almost 2 weeks since I started giving my 11 year old poodle mix Brain’s Best Friend! I can’t say I have seen any changes yet, it could be too soon. I give her one in the morning after her first walk. I hope it helps with her cognitive issues.

Worked for my old dog

I think these do something. My 15.5 year old dog seems more alert and is hunting for mice again.
Seems to help my elderly dog

My 13 year-old dog has shown signs of canine cognitive disorder. These treats given daily seem to help, It could be the placebo effect but I notice when she hasn't had them she has more difficulty navigating the world. They are worth a try.
Seems to be making my little old man more alert

I started giving our 15-1/2 year old miniature schnauzer Cicero these gingko biloba-loaded treats about 3 weeks ago, adding them to his food in the morning. They're small enough and soft enough for him to chew on their own, but adding them to his food gives him more interest in feeding. So far I do think he's become more alert and engaged with us humans and his baby schnauzer brother Apollo. My one complaint about the product description is the dosage - a package of 90 will last 45 days if I follow the guidelines to give him 2/day. And for a larger dog, these would be used up faster. I called Chewy and suggested they correct this in the description, but I don't see that yet.
