Just like in people, as pets age mental acuity may diminish. In dogs this may manifest itself through confusion or personality changes often expressed through being less social.
Research is looking into dog aging and associated decreases in levels of S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe) in cerebrospinal fluid, which surrounds the brain. Both Denosyl® and Denamarin® provide SAMe in a stabilized form to help with brain health and act as a neuroprotector. Denamarin also provides a bioavailable form of silybin which supports oxidative balance. The new chewable tablets of Denosyl and Denamarin allow dogs to receive SAMe in a tasty treat, eliminating the need to "pill" the dog daily. Additionally, the chewable tablets allow for quicker uptake of the SAMe and less variability between dogs when compared to enteric-coated tablets. While best known for supporting the liver in dogs and cats both Denamarin and Denosyl also have a place in supporting brain health! If you see any of the above behavior changes in your pet, ask your veterinarian if Denamarin or Denosyl could help your best friend live a longer, healthier life.
