Pet anxiety is a topic of special concern to me. So much so, that I decided to launch the first annual Pet Anxiety Awareness Week (PAAW) from June 25-July 1, 2017, in remembrance of my dog, Buck, who suffered from fear, anxiety, and stress (FAS).
Normally when we talk about pet anxiety, we focus on triggers such as noise, separation, or travel. However, there’s another cause of anxiety in animals that I feel deserves special attention.
As they age, about 50 percent of senior pets experience what’s known as Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (or CDS). It’s similar to dementia or Alzheimer’s in people. Symptoms of CDS in cats and dogs include:
- Having accidents in the house
- Appearing disoriented or confused
- Changes in sleep or activity
- Wandering or pacing
- Not responding to their name or commands they’ve always known
- Changes in interactions with family members
If you’ve ever experienced moments of confusion, forgetfulness, or disorientation you know how stressful this can be. And I can only imagine that our four-legged friends must experience similar fear, anxiety, and stress when it happens to them.
Thankfully, there are steps that we can take as pet parents to support our pets’ mental health and keep them happy and calm as they age. For my own pets, I include plenty of mentally-stimulating activities every day, and, even though they haven’t shown any signs of decline, I’ve also added the supplement, Neutricks, to their diet.
Neutricks can reverse or prevent many cognitive behavioral issues that can be stressful for both pets and pet parents!
How Does Neutricks Work?
Some pet parents see their pets experiencing behaviors from CDS and think that it’s just a natural part of aging. But these symptoms are actually caused by the loss of a calcium-binding protein in the brain. Without it, calcium builds up, and cells start to die. Research has shown that a lack of this protein is seen in virtually all brain health issues.
Neutricks works by replacing that protein. It has been shown to support healthy brain function, mental agility, and cognitive focus. In addition, it’s very safe, with no known side effects and has been recommended by veterinarians, veterinary schools, and Mikkel Becker, dog trainer and daughter of Dr. Marty Becker.
When to Give Neutricks to Your Pet
If your pet is experiencing any signs of CDS, he should start taking Neutricks right away since veterinary neurologists say that there is a point of no return for this condition. But even pets who are currently not showing any symptoms can still benefit from a supplement that supports their brain health.
Sometimes we don’t think about it until we start to see the signs of cognitive decline in our pets, but wouldn’t it be even better if they never had to experience the anxiety of CDS in the first place? Neutricks can help to reverse symptoms of CDS, but it can also delay or even prevent them!
I believe that it’s never too early to start protecting my pets’ mental health. That’s why I’ve started giving them a Neutricks supplement every day. Chilly loves his — he thinks it’s a treat! My cats, Olivia and Turtle, get theirs sprinkled on their food. I’m happy to say that all three of them are as sharp as ever!
Here’s what a few other pet parents have to say about how Neutricks has helped their furry family members.
So if you want to spare your furry family member the anxiety that comes from cognitive decline, do yourself (and your pet) a favor and visit Neutricks.com. Their site is packed with information about CDS, the latest research, and customer testimonials. You can also purchase both the cat and dog supplement on their site for $39.95.
