Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. It is recommended to follow at least a 7-day transition plan before exclusively feeding your pet a new food. Start by mixing 75% of your pet's current diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the current diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

Our veterinarian recommended this exact brand when our 3-year-old poodle started having seizures. He's been on it for about 3 months and so far, so good. We are hoping this eliminates them, however the veterinarian said that it should reduce them by 50% which is still good news there is an alternative to medications which do have side effects. I've purchased this twice from Chewy and the second time I ordered the largest bag and it's worth it. You do need a prescription from the veterinarian for this exact formula. I am happy with the results so far and the price / delivery is great from Chewy.
My veterinarian recommended this food when my Husky was diagnosed with epilepsy. We started her on this and a medication at the same time, so I can’t say for sure how much it helps. She hasn’t had a grand mal seizure since starting this food in February. She has had a few focal seizures, but they haven’t been in clusters like they were before starting this and medication. She doesn’t like this food as well as the 7+ Bright Mind formula, but after a few weeks she got used to eat. Now she seems to enjoy it.
I have an 8 year old silver Labrador that has severe allergies and recently started having seizures . I was sure about this food and have to say he did have a seizure last night ) he’s been on this food only for 5 weeks. I had high hopes and am still gonna feed him this bc he enjoys it !
She hasn’t had a seizure in one n half years. She does eat her food. Unfortunately the cat likes it too. One bag lasts me over a year because she is little. My dog is also on medication. I wish it came in SF mallet pellets.
It's too early to see if the food provides any benefit to my dogs (one with cognitive decline and one with epilepsy), but they all seem to like the way it tastes, and there is solid research behind the benefits of medium chain triglycerides so I'm hopeful that the expense will be worth it.
I’ve used this product at recommendation of my vet for my dog who has cognitive dysfunction. I didn’t notice any difference in his mentation when I started the food but figured it wouldn’t hurt and stable was better than worse. This last bag, he won’t touch it. Not sure if formula changed but will be transitioning to another food.
Along with much others after so long he just won’t eat it. He takes both keppra and phenobarbital and we put this food in thinking it maybe would help. Not sure if it does. I even mix a cup of his Victor dog food in with it and he still won’t eat it. After 2-3 months I’m taking him off of it. I think it’s very expensive for what it is regardless
This food has been a big help in controlling my dog's seizures in conjunction with medication. Background - before being on this food, he had clusters (6+) of seizures every 3ish weeks. He was on phenobarbital, zonisamide, and keppra and that was still the best we could do for his seizures. He tried potassium bromide but did not react well to it. His veterinary neurologist suggested this food as a last ditch attempt since all the medicine wasn't providing enough control over his clusters. Since being on this food (strictly only ever eating this kibble and cream cheese to give meds), his seizures have reduced dramatically, to one every 2ish months. He also has only had one cluster seizure episode. Would recommend giving this a try if medication alone has not been able to fully manage your dog's seizures.
We have a 3 year old German Shepherd who has some neurological issues and has not been able to eat dry kibble since he was about 9 months old. We spend so much on special canned food, but this dry food changed all that. We are so thankful that our vet recommended and prescribed this food!
My dog is a 5 year old Australian shepherd/cattle dog mix. He was diagnosed with epilepsy and has been taking seizure medication for approximately 2 years. Even with the medication he was still having seizures about once a month. The vet wanted to up his medication dosage, but I started to research dog food and wanted to give this a shot before increasing his dosage. The only thing I changed is his food, nothing about his dosage has been changed. He has now gone 6 months without a seizure! The food is worth every penny.
