What Is Dog Brain Booster?
Dog Brain Booster is a leading natural supplement formulated to support dog brain health and reduce symptoms associated with doggie dementia. It provides important nutrients to your dog’s brain. As dogs age, they may start to lose awareness, become confused or forgetful and show increased anxiety and restlessness. Dog Brain Booster contains powerful, science-based brain nutrients, Phosphatidyl Serine and Acetyl-L-Carnitine, that have been extensively researched to enhance memory, improve mental acuity and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
Dog Brain Booster is ideal for dogs of all sizes. It has been safely administered to dogs as small as 5 pounds. This veterinary recommended supplement has been used successfully since 2005. All ingredients have been third party tested for potency and purity. Made in the USA. Dog Brain Booster is the most comprehensive canine brain boosting supplement available to support your dog’s brain health through his golden years.
Dog Brain Booster Can Benefit Dogs With:
Changes in your dog’s brain function occur very slowly. Small changes in behavior and daily routine, such as sleeping more and seeming disconnected, can progress to confusion, disorientation, anxiety, irritability and Sundowner’s syndrome. According to research*, the pathological changes found in the brains of dogs with canine cognitive dysfunction are similar to the human brain with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
The dog may seem to lose his or her normal personality and be far less engaging. While this may be very hard for a pet owner to accept, it is not a lost cause. At Ask Ariel, we feel your sadness and heartbreak as we experienced this same situation ourselves. But, we were able to use supplements and techniques to help our own dog Whitey.

Due to advances in veterinary medicine and improved owner care, many dogs are living longer lives. This has helped to increase awareness of doggie dementia, but as many as 85% of cases remain undiagnosed. Dogs diagnosed with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction (CCD) can greatly benefit from Dog Brain Booster. The natural levels of phospholipids, cholines and nutrients decline as your dog ages. The ingredients in Dog Brain Booster can help slow mitochondrial decay and cellular aging; thereby slowing cognitive decline.
Does your senior dog seem confused at night? Sundowner's syndrome in dogs is one of the most recognizable signs of doggie dementia. Many dogs with dementia sleep during the day and then become anxious or confused at night, displaying odd behavior such as pacing or walking in circles, barking or vocalizing constantly, agitation, aggression and neediness. Dog Brain Booster is an effective Sundowner's for dogs treatment. When combined with PSY-stabil, a natural homeopathic remedy that promotes relaxation and sleep, the two formulas can help regulate your dog’s sleep cycle and improve the symptoms of Sundowner’s syndrome.
can also help to regulate the sleep-wake cycle and may help pets (especially seniors) with mental confusion and dementia. Over the years, many clients report that their senior dogs have more energy and an increased bounce in their step after Special SAMe. As dogs age, their natural levels of S-Adenosyl methionine begins to decline. SAMe is essential for the synthesis of choline and melatonin. Choline supports brain and nerve function and melatonin regulates sleep.

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to your dog’s head or spinal cord is abnormal. Strokes typically show no warning signs and occur spontaneously. Common symptoms of a stroke that has occurred in the brain are a sudden loss of balance, blindness, or seizures. Severe strokes may cause sudden limb weakness or paralysis of limbs.
Diseases such as heart disease, Cushing’s disease, diabetes, hypothyroidism and cancer can make your dog more likely to have a stroke. Long term use of steroids can also increase the risk. Most dogs that have strokes can recover. It is important to help keep your dog’s brain healthy after a stroke. The antioxidant rich ingredients in Dog Brain Booster can help to enhance brain health and blood flow.
The symptoms of vestibular disease, also called “old dog disease”, are often mistaken for a stroke or brain tumor. A dog may exhibit a rapid, uncontrolled eye movement (called nystagmus - the hallmark of vestibular disease), a head tilt, difficulty standing and maintaining balance, turning in circles and/or nausea. The vertigo symptoms can be pretty intense, especially in older dogs. Many times they have little or no appetite and thirst and are unable to go outside to potty. Most dogs improve within a few days, but full recovery can take weeks. The nutrients in Dog Brain Booster can help to protect the cellular makeup of the brain.
- Brain Tumor or Brain Cancer
A canine brain tumor is a mass inside your dogs cranial cavity, it may be cancerous or non cancerous. There are different levels of malignancy and depending on the level, the treatment options will vary. Brain tumors are more common in older dogs, but can also develop in younger pets.
It is important to know the signs of a brain tumor, as the symptoms will vary based on the location. Forebrain tumors may cause changes to learned behavior, constant circling or pacing, decreased awareness and seizures. Brainstem tumors may affect motor function, possibly causing a head tilt, leaning and falling to the side, circling, rapid eye movement, and loss of appetite. Cerebellum tumors may affect the coordination of movements, resulting in uncoordinated gait (goosestepping or hypermetria), head tremors, swaying, and a wide stance.
The options for treating brain tumors usually include surgical removal, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and palliative treatment of the symptoms. Most brain tumors can be treated, but not cured. The goal should be to maintain and extend a good quality of life for your dog.
- Neurological Problems Affecting the Central Nervous System
The nervous system is comprised of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. As your dog ages, he may start to show changes in behavior or temperament, balance problems, or spinal pain. As a pet owner, we may write these changes off as “old-age”. These gradual changes may in fact signal the start of a neurological disease.
As a dog ages, his brain cells will start to atrophy or die off. This will lead to a gradual loss of brain function. The natural level of neurotransmitters will also decrease with age, slowing brain response time. Most dogs will also have increased accumulations of beta amyloid plaques, a natural occurring protein that disrupts cell function.
Dogs with neurologic conditions, such as muscle tremors, loss of coordination and nerve or spinal injuries can benefit from the phospholipids and antioxidants in Dog Brain Booster.
Focal seizures come from a specific area of the brain and affect a single side of the body or a specific body part. Your dog may exhibit unusual movement (paddling a limb, chewing motions, facial twitches), fear, pupil dilation, drooling or vomiting. Focal seizures can spread to both sides of the brain and become generalized seizures. Most generalized seizures involve involuntary muscle movements, impaired awareness, salivation, urination and/or defecation.
Health conditions such as brain tumors, hypothyroidism or advanced liver or kidney disease can cause seizures. Having your dog thoroughly checked for other health issues is important. Age is also a factor. A dog may have an occasional seizure as a young pup but then develop more frequent seizures as an adult dog. Knowing what can trigger a seizure in your dog can often reduce the frequency of seizures. By feeding a seizure appropriate diet and adding natural supplements, you should be able to reduce the frequency and severity of seizures. Dog Brain Booster contains two of the most powerful and beneficial natural brain nutrients, Phosphatidyl Serine and Acetyl-L-Carnitine, to support and nurture brain health. It is helpful for dogs with focal seizures and quite beneficial for dogs with brain tumors that can cause seizures.
- Senior Dogs With Motor Coordination Issues
As dogs age they begin to lose fine motor skills and experience decreased energy levels. Ataxia in dogs is the clinical term for the loss of coordination or unbalanced gait due to sensory dysfunction. Some older dogs may appear to be drunk. Some senior dogs begin to experience stumbling when they walk or their paws may seem to curl under. Knuckling of the paws can be one of the first signs of degenerative myelopathy. Degenerative myelopathy affects the spinal cord and it resembles arthritis in its early stages, but progresses to ataxia from hind limb weakness and paralysis.
Scuffing of the feet, worn toenails and paws that are dirty on the top can indicate a neurological condition. This is not normal wear and tear due to aging. Your pet could have muscle weakness, coordination issues or other orthopedic problems. It is important to keep your dog comfortable and to take steps to prevent injuries due to stumbling or falling. Pets with motor coordination issues typically also have arthritis and/or joint pain. Dog Brain Booster can enhance mental recovery and support motor skills, while the Arthritis & Joint Support Kit can help to treat the aches and pains of aging.

Acetyl L-Carnitine HCL Important for brain function and muscle movement. Helps to protect the efficiency of the mitochondrial function in the brain and prevent the production of free radicals which cause cell damage. Also transports out the toxic compounds formed during energy production.
Citicoline (as Cognizin) Critical for healthy brain function and cognition. Cognizin, a proprietary form of citicoline, has been clinically studied to support mental energy and focus. Neuroprotective - maintains membrane integrity.
Glycerophosphocholine (GPC) A supportive nutrient for the brain, muscles and other organs. It is a building block for cell membrane phospholipids. Supports cellular membranes and helps to prevent cognitive decline.
Coffee Fruit Concentrate (as NeuroFactor) NeuroFactor™ is an all-natural, patented extract of whole fruit from the Coffea arabica plant. It contains polyphenols that have been shown in clinical study to stimulate the production of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), a key neuroprotein involved in overall brain health. BDNF has been widely reported to play a critical role in neuronal development, maintenance, repair, and protection against neuro-degeneration.
Phosphatidylserine A phospholipid that covers and protects the cells in your brain and carries messages between them. The natural level of this substance in the brain decreases with age. Helps to improve cognition and keep the mind sharp.
Ginkgo Antioxidant that studies show may help to slow the progression of dementia. Reduces the density of free radicals.
