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 14 year husky mix started acting like she needed a little reassurance with certain tasks or "forgetting" behaviors and pacing about a year ago. After about a year of 3 of these "brain bites", we call them, she has regained confidence and doesn't pace any longer. I will add she is extremely picky with food and you absolutely cannot fool her with pill pockets or most supplements and she absolutely demands these after she gets her other inflammatory meds as a reward.
I definitely see a difference

I have a pit bull who will turn 15 in May. I have been giving her these for about a year now when I noticed her going downhill cognitively. I definitely notice that she is more spacey when I forget to order these in time. It has good ingredients and got my vets stamp of approval when I asked him what he thought about it.
No Real Change Noticed
on Aug 7, 2020
My 10 year old Bulldog is starting to show signs of dementia, and I had hoped this would give him a boost. The package isn't very large, and for his size he should have about 5 per day so it won't last long. I have noticed no change in his behavior, and he actually won't even eat them. I have to hide them in his food, but he's very choosy. I can only say that for me, this is probably a product I won't buy again.
How well it actually works (?)

The product makes good claims, but with a 12-year-old halfbreed Samoyed-Corgi...
who knows?? She enjoys their taste, but if she is actually sharper from taking them(?)
Brain's Best Friend Treats
on Jun 16, 2020
I've been giving my two dogs this for the past year. It seemed to help my older pup, who seemed to have dementia - he would stand and stare into a corner. It seemed to help him, so I started giving them to my 10-yr-old Jack Russell even though she showed no symptoms. She loves them, so I'm continuing to give them to her.
Seems to help

I have 3 dogs with dementia and adding the Grey Muzzle supplement appears to help
Seems to be helping

My soon to be 11 yr old Pug rapidly went blind due to brain mass... also kinda went a bit loopy. She does everything at the speed of sound, so gets a little lost and confused at times, especially when food is involved. These seem to have helped her focus a bit more. Now if only we could get her to slow down.
Not really sure if anything is happening
on Feb 26, 2020
After reading the reviews on this site and another site, we found our pet having extremely similar issues/symptoms the other reviewers wrote about. And discussed about with our vet. The most drastic change in our pet is the nighttime pacing and taking laps around our house. Each night we have a routine she goes thru now after we get done eating. She won't sit with us any longer. We try to put her on the couch or bed with us and she will stay for a moment and then leave. It's like we have a new pet living with us. She's a 16-year-old cocker spaniel. We've had her since she was 1.5 years old. She also urinates like crazy. She goes out her dog door non-stop (unless she's sleeping).

We've had her since she was 1.5 years old. She also urinates like crazy. She goes out her dog door non-stop (unless she's sleeping). We have to take the water away at night because she won't stop drinking it while taking her laps around the room. On her daily walks, she stops to urinate every couple of feet. As her symptoms change, now she is urinating in the house very randomly. She could go two weeks without doing it and then all of a sudden we find puddles around the house in one day's time. It's hard to get her to relax at night time, until we go to bed and she sleeps in her own bed on the floor. Then she is no longer restless & she looks comfortable. Been to the vet numerous times & was told she probably has doggie dementia. She has food that contains all the Omegas the vet recommended. Had her checked for bladder infection - was on antibiotics for two weeks and it didn't change anything. Had her checked for Cushing's disease twice and her test came up borderline both times. And not high enough to prescribe Cushings Meds (and those side effects sounded worse). I saw Brains Best Friend treat and read all the great reviews. Our fur buddy even has the same grey muzzle. Hahah. And I thought this must be it. So far she's been on 13 days and we see no difference whatsoever. She likes the taste of them and that's about it. But our dog eats any vegetable or fruit and does not snub her nose up at much. She eats beets, asparagus and carrots for daily treats. She's had a great diet and been on petcurean "now" dog food for about a decade. About two weeks before trying Brains Best Friend, we tried adding a Krill based Omega additive to her food (in liquid form). No change seen in thrdr 'dimentia' type symptoms. She's very active - except she doesn't play with her toys anymore (no big deal). But for her age, we feel like she's very active. She also has a weird tremor that seems to be getting worse. We've tried CBD (increasing dosage as time goes on). She's been on CBD for about 8-10 months now and still now change in her tremors or any other symptoms. The one thing we noticed with CBD is she has a cold wet nose every day whereas before her nose was dry and cracking. So I keep giving her CBD. Still at a loss with what to do if she has doggie dementia. Any suggestions anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.… more
Yummy for My Senior Pug
on Jan 4, 2020
I give my 25lb pug who is 12yrs old 2 a day. She gobbles them up but then again she isn't very picky. She was losing her hair and now it has appeared to stop. I am hopeful these are having something to do with it as I did some research on the ingredients and they can be helpful with hair loss.

Pieces are very small. So the dog doesn’t look at it as a treat. How would you know if they work ? I guess they start reading The NY Times ! I will continue this product until I feel I should stop.
