Aktivait Medium & Large Breed Dog 60 capsules

Brain ageing in both humans and pets is the subject of the latest and most topical research and development.

Free radical damage can lead to Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome and negative behavioural changes like disorientation, changes in interaction and house soiling. It affects 1 in 3 of pets over 7 years of age, but it can be treated.

What age-related behavioural changes would my dog show?

Animal behaviourists identify five distinct areas of behavioural changes:

  • Increased wandering, pacing,restlessness.

  • Depression or apathy

  • Disorientation

  • Decreased recognition of familiar people, pets or places.

  • Getting lost in familiar locations.

  • Decreased interest in interaction or play.

  • Inappropriate vocalisation, eg. barking for no apparent reason

  • Restless sleep or waking at night.

  • Increased daytime and total sleep.

  • Indoor elimination at random sites.

  • Decreased or no signalling of intent to eliminate.

  • Going outdoors but eliminating indoors upon returning

How long will it take to see results ?

Noticeable improvements from AKTIVAIT® have been reported as early as 3-4 weeks after the start of supplementation but this will vary by age, breed and the severity of the changes present.

What is the evidence that AKTIVAIT® will help ?

A rigorous study by a world-renowned veterinary behaviourist has shown that AKTIVAIT® significantly improves the signs of cognitive dysfunction, and improves the quality of life for both the animal and owner.

What causes age-related behavioural changes ?

Humans and animals produce harmful chemicals called free radicals on a daily basis. Young healthy dogs produce antioxidants which neutralise these free radicals thereby avoiding damage to brain cells. As dogs age, they produce more free radicals but unfortunately their levels of antioxidants deteriorate.

This leads to an excess of free radicals, which can damage the cells of the brain.

How does AKTIVAIT® help manage these changes ?

AKTIVAIT® is the first supplement to combine all the nutrients necessary for sustaining optimum brain function. It contains a complex formula of antioxidants (vitamins C and E, selenium, co-enzyme Q 10, α-lipoic acid and N-acetyl cysteine) and compounds necessary for optimum metabolism and function of the brain cells (carnitine, phosphatidylserine and the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA). It helps to prevent free radical damage and improve electrical transmission between nerve cells in the brain.

When should I give my dog AKTIVAIT® ?

Cognitive dysfunction is a progressive condition that will tend to get worse with time. For optimal results supplementation with AKTIVAIT® should begin as soon as any signs of the condition are seen. It can also be given to dogs from middle age onwards to help maintain normal brain function.

How do I administer AKTIVAIT® ?

AKTIVAIT® comes in a convenient capsule so it is easy to administer, and can either be sprinkled onto your dog’s food or given whole.
