Keep brain health and cognitive function at its best, with new BrainCopa® Tablets!

As your pet ages, changes occur across their body. Their coat may start to grey, their joints may become stiff, their hearing and sight may worsen, and their cognitive function may decline. It’s often the last which can be one of the most distressing for dogs and their owners.

While cognitive decline occurs in all pets as they age, the decline will be accelerated in some. This is often termed canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CCD), or ‘doggy dementia’, and is surprisingly common – thought to affect nearly 1 in 3 dogs over the age of 11.7

With signs of cognitive decline including: memory loss, restlessness, agitation, disorientation, altered behaviour and sleep, increased barking, and house-soiling, it’s easy to see how it can really impact the quality of life for the whole family.

While unfortunately there is no cure for cognitive decline, there are ways you can help support your senior pet such as maintaining routines, increasing toilet trips, and remembering to be patient and kind to them.

What is in BrainCopa®?

BrainCopa® contains a unique and powerful blend of natural active compounds, drawing on scientific research and traditional medicine, to provide targeted multi-action support for normal brain and cognitive function:

Bacopa monnieriLong used in Ayurvedic medicine as a ‘brain tonic’, Bacopa is a powerful antioxidant which supports the central nervous system, memory and cognitive function.2 It can also help maintain a normal inflammatory state in the brain.3

DHA powder – Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid which is vital for brain development and ongoing brain function. It has been shown to support cognitive function in older dogs and is well-tolerated and readily absorbed.1 Our DHA powder is sourced from algae, so is super sustainable.

Ginkgo bilobaUsed in traditional Chinese medicine, and rich in anti-oxidants this herb has been found to improve the quality of life of older dogs. It has been shown to minimise the impact of disorientation, and sleep and behavioural changes, with 79% of dogs showing a good response.5

Lemon balm  – A calming herb, traditionally used to aid those with sleep disturbances. It helps to support mental wellbeing and has also been found to promote optimal cognitive function.4

Vitamin E – Recognised as a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E helps support optimal memory and aids DHA uptake in the brain.6

Can BrainCopa® be given to any dog or cat?

Yes, BrainCopa® can help support brain and cognitive function in all dogs and cats.

Optimal brain function, including quick learning, a good memory and the correct responses to situations can help your pet live life to the max. It can be especially important to support brain and cognitive function as your pet ages though, to keep their mind sharp so they can continue enjoying life’s experiences to the full.

While we don’t like to think of our pets being classed as senior citizens, it is important to remember that they can reach this title more quickly than we think. Dogs are generally thought to head into their senior years anywhere between 7-11 years, depending on their size and cats are usually considered seniors over 11 years of age.
