Help to keep your pet`s mind agile with cognitive support

BrainCopa®`s unique, powerful formulation helps to keep your pet`s mind agile by promoting normal brain and mental function, which can be especially useful in older pets experiencing cognitive decline. With a range of scientifically proven natural ingredients, including DHA powder and bacopa, BrainCopa provides targeted multi-action support - giving you and them peace of mind.

Why 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:

Unique, powerful formulation - With a blend of scientifically proven natural active compounds, including DHA and Bacopa, for targeted multi-action support of normal brain and cognitive function.

Advanced support - Naturally supports senior dogs to help maintain mental agility - enabling them to better cope with the changes associated with ageing, such as disorientation, restlessness, altered behaviour and sleep, and house-soiling.

Ethical and sustainable ingredients - At Dorwest we only use the highest quality ingredients, which are always from sustainable sources. BrainCopa includes a sustainable algae source of Omega 3.

Easy to give - Suitable for use as a whole tablet or crushed, BrainCopa is easy to give to even the fussiest dog.

Manufactured to the highest standards - Our products are all produced to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards (the standards which are used for the manufacture of medicines). We carry out extensive testing, from raw ingredients, through the production process to the end product, for guaranteed quality and consistency.

What is 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:

  • 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.
  • Bacopa monnieri - Long 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
  • 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
  • Ginkgo biloba - Used 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
  • Vitamin E - Recognised as a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E helps support optimal memory and aids DHA uptake in the brain.6

What is canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CCD)?

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

The signs of cognitive decline include:

  • Memory loss (forgetting commands)
  • Restlessness and agitation (pacing)
  • Disorientation and confusion
  • House-soiling
  • Altered behaviour (possible aggression)
  • Altered sleep patterns
  • Increased barking
  • Change in appetite

From this, it is easy to see how CCD can really impact the quality of life for the whole family.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for cognitive decline, but there are ways you can help support your senior pet:

  • Keep to a routine
  • Make your home easy for your pet to navigate
  • Avoid sudden changes - both to your home layout and routine
  • Make sure your pet has a comfy bed and a safe space
  • Increase toilet trips and potentially provide somewhere for them to toilet indoors overnight
  • Maintain exercise and play but make sure it’s appropriate for their joints
  • Be patient and kind to your pet – it’s not their fault if they forget commands or have an accident in the house
  • Ensure they have a good diet, rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids

Supplements such as BrainCopa® can also help to support your pet through cognitive decline. With natural, targeted, multi-action brain health and cognitive function support, you can help keep them mentally agile well into their golden years.

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.
