Supplements Can Help Doggie Dementia

Is Your Pet Showing Signs of Dementia?

"Carson, my beloved 14 year old Jindo Chow, was showing signs of extreme dementia. He was pacing all night, barking at nothing and exhibiting other odd and upsetting behavior.
His quality-of-life was terrible and my husband and I were at our wits end… no sleep and just so worried. We tried Anipryl and while it helped his dementia for awhile, the side effects almost killed him. We did not know where to turn until a friend recommended Ask Ariel’s Dog Brain Booster. OMG, what a difference it has made… it is a miracle
herb. Carson has no more dementia traits; he sleeps through the night, doesn't bark unnecessarily, and all his other dementia behaviors have disappeared. I wouldn't believe it if I wasn't living it, but it is like I said, a miracle supplement. I could not be happier and my husband and I also have our lives back. No words can express our gratitude. Thank you Ask Ariel!!"

Many of us are familiar with the pain of watching a friend, parent or acquaintance experience senility. But, did you know that dogs and cats can experience the same? Dogs can have "doggie dementia", referred to as Canine Cognitive Dysfunction and it is similar to the human disease Alzheimer's. In fact, many clients may refer their dog's condition as dog Alzheimer's. The dog dementia symptoms can "sneak up" and will continue to progress as the pet ages. There is help and it is important to support your pet as they go through the aging process.


Early Signs of Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (Doggie Dementia)
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Reduced responsiveness/apparent deafness
  • Change in behavior
  • Excessive panting
  • A changed interest in food
  • Difficulty navigating their regular environment
Late Signs of Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (Doggie Dementia)
  • Confusion/disorientation
  • Increased thirst
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Standing in corners or facing walls
  • Wandering aimlessly
  • Agitation/aggression
  • Excessive barking
There is Hope and Help For Pets With Dementia!

Dog Brain Boostergerman shep photo 2

Dog Brain Booster contains natural ingredients clinically proven to support and nurture brain health. These nutrients provide food and nutrition for your dog's brain. Dog Brain Booster has been used successfully with both small and big dogs. Antioxidants are key to brain health, so use Dog Brain Booster along with Purrfect Pet COQ10 and Oxicell SE for best results. Pets with dementia often pace especially at night. They may sleep during the day and then pace all night. Some pets may be especially anxious. You can use the Psystabil, a calming homeopathic formula to help calm them down and sleep.

We have extensive experience caring for dogs with dementia. Dementia is an exceptionally difficult condition because there is very little in the way of treatments from a conventional veterinary standpoint. Having dealt with the heartbreak of dementia herself, AskAriel Pet Nutritionist Susan Davis saw the benefits of these formulas on her own dog Whitey. It's very emotionally painful to find your beloved dog standing in the corner staring at the wall, or waking up to a huge mess of pooh after your dog paced in it. Many pet owners may conclude that is when it is time to put the dog to sleep. Everyone must make a personal choice about what is right for their family and certainly using these supplements early on in the initial stages of canine dementia will yield the best results. But, dementia or canine cognitive dysfunction is often not recognized until the pet is pretty far along with the symptoms. We understand that, have dealt with it personally and using lifestyle changes and a few supplements, were able to give Whitey the love and comfort he needed to live out the remainder of his life with a good quality of life. We would be happy to assist you and if you have questions, please feel free to email us at askariel1@gmail.com

Whitey's Story


Whitey With Severe Dementia


Whitey ("from the hood") as we referred to him, was the most resilient dog we have ever met. He had so many ailments when we adopted him (advanced liver disease, arthritis, dementia, partially deaf) but he still wanted to go on his walks, would stumble and fall and get right back up again. Whitey came to us at the very end of his life, after years of neglect from a prior owner in our neighborhood. There were so many adorable names we could have given this beautiful fluffy dog, but given his courage and alpha-dog toughness, Whitey From The Hood just stuck. His first owner left him in the backyard and moved away and his second owner (not having an understanding of the husky breed) just left him on a deck outside 24/7. When we first adopted him, Whitey had some neurological symptoms (rear legs curling under when he walked and stumbling) but he was still energetic, engaging and happy. Over time, Whitey drifted from us and since we only had him for about 6 months, it was hard to know what was his personality and what was dementia. We would get upset because we would find accidents in the house in the morning and he wouldn't go to sleep at night. He seemed not to respond to us when we called him (he was partially deaf but would respond to other loud sounds). We would find him standing in corners and slowing down dramatically on walks. Then the accidents became complete messes, where an entire area was covered in feces and we realized he was pacing during the night and was stepping in his own pooh. He would want to sleep until noon where previously he would get up early in the morning with our family. The problems didn't happen overnight and our household was very busy at the time, and we took him to the veterinarian multiple times asking for an explanation. We were dealing with the very best veterinarians but "mental disorders" in pets are not widely understood. We did some research and finally realized that Whitey had canine cognitive dysfunction.

We decided to try the Dog Brain Booster, Purrfect Pet CoQ10 and Oxicell for Whitey during the day and noticed a big improvement in his energy and increased engagement in activities. The Dog Brain Booster greatly reduced his neurological-caused stumbling. The supplements also stopped the accidents at night for quite awhile as well. (We came to learn that Whitey's sphincter recognition at night wasn't as strong in the evening, so we would manually stimulate his rear end to help him recognize it was time to pooh which stopped the pacing and accidents during the night.) We tried medications veterinarians prescribed to help calm him and even melatonin, but in Whitey's case what worked best was to use the Psystabil at night. Within a few minutes, he would calm down. We also gave him supplements such as The Liver Support Kit to support his liver. We added smushed berries and plenty of vegetables to his food and noticed a difference. But, most of all, we made up our minds to accept Whitey in his advanced mental state and loved him more than ever. We watched closely to see if Whitey was ready to go but he always had that spark in his eye, that "bingo" was still there. The picture taken above was taken just a month before he passed away. We loved every minute with Whitey, as challenging as it was and are so glad we could use the supplements and lifestyle changes to give him as much time with us as was humanly possible. We wanted to erase the bad memories of his mistreatment and are so grateful for everything our beloved dog taught us. We hope his story will help you make an informed decision about what is right for your dog and please remember, we are always here to help you through your journey.

For Years, Dog Brain Booster Has Been Helping Dogs Come Back To Life!

"Sophie, our sweet boxer, is now 14 years old. As many senior dogs do, Sophie started to act confused, was barking for no reason. It seemed like she had dementia and would sometimes appear as though she were "drunk" which affects some senior dogs. She appeared to not even know that she was barking. She would get anxious, confused and stressed. Our veterinarian diagnosed her with Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CDS) and also vestibular disease. We tried the Dog Brain Booster for healthy brain function and we got our Sophie back within just a few days. She is once again playing with our other boxer and the barking has stopped. We would not have our Sophie with us today if is wasn't for Ask Ariel's diet and supplements." Karen, California (sent to us in 2011)
