You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks

Neutricks for Senior Dogs (60 Soft Chews)
As dogs age they lose calcium-binding proteins that protect their brain cells. This protein loss affects their ability to learn, retain memories, think and concentrate

Neutricks (apoaequorin) replaces these proteins and helps protect cells during this natural process of aging.

Active Ingredient: (per soft chew) apoaequorin ... 5 mg

Other Ingredients:
Dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, sucrose, pork liver powder, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate

FACTS:
  1. Behavior issues related to CDS has resulted in the pet owners considering euthanasia.
  2. Pet owners often mistake "Old Dog Syndrome" as a normal result of aging, with Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CDS) there is hope.
  3. Neutricks™ has saved pets lives in the USA - Coast to coast
  4. Proven to work at an independent cognitive research center and in the clinic
Evidence Based - Scientifically Proven
Neutricks™ Provides Another Option!

Supplement Joins Fight Against CDS

By Dennis Arp
It starts with the unexpected. Perhaps an incident of house soiling that’s totally out of character. Or a lack of response when a dog is called by name. Maybe some aimless wandering, a new phobia, or dazed and anxious looks when entering a familiar place.

These are symptoms of cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CDS), a condition of aging that some veterinary practitioners say deserves increased attention in pets, especially now that new tools for treatment are emerging.

The latest option is Neutricks, a chewable dietary supplement designed to protect brain cells and combat cognitive decline in pets.

Released in November as the first product from Quincy Animal Health of Madison, Wis., Neutricks uses the same technology as Prevagen, which was developed by Quincy Bioscience and has been shown to help people suffering from age-related cognitive decline.

At the heart of Neutricks is the patented protein apoaequorin, first discovered in 1962 in a species of jellyfish. The idea is that as aging pets stop producing calcium-binding proteins and start to lose brain function, the apoaequorin in Neutricks acts as a replacement protein. So far, clinical and lab testing have yielded positive results.

Research Discoveries

A project commissioned by Quincy and conducted by the research firm CanCog Technologies Inc. found statistically significant improvement in cognitive function by senior dogs in a controlled study.

In the study, 24 beagles 9 years or older were placed in three cognitively equivalent groups. They received either a placebo tablet or two different doses of apoaequorin. The subjects were tested using standardized cognitive methods for dogs, including object discrimination, visual search task, and a visuospatial working memory task.

Data from the double-blinded placebo testing “suggest that daily administration of apoaequorin has beneficial effects seen in improved learning, accuracy, and attention,” lead researcher Bill Milgram, Ph.D., reported in November in a Quincy news release.

“All of the animals tested in the study were aged and showed some degree of cognitive impairment. Thus, one possible interpretation is that the treatment has the potential of reversing age-associated cognitive dysfunction.”

Gary Landsberg, BSc, DVM, Dipl. ACVB, Dipl. ECVBM-CA, is a veterinary behaviorist in private practice who is also director of scientific affairs for CanCog. He’s eager to begin adding Neutricks to the mix of prescription medications and supplements used by patients with age-related cognitive decline.

“I’m delighted as a practitioner that we now have one more product that has been shown to be effective against this disease,” said Dr. Landsberg, whose practice is North Toronto Animal Clinic in Thornhill, Ontario. “Because this product has a somewhat different mode of action, it will complement those already out there.”

Neutricks has been used since late summer on senior patients of Sarah Kalstrup, DVM, at Westside Family Pet Clinic in Madison, Wis. As a test practice, Westside received trial samples, and Dr. Kalstrup said 10 animals with CDS symptoms have been involved in the study.

Real-Life Test

Kalstrup said the owners of eight of the 10 dogs that began taking Neutricks reported improvement in at least one of the cognitive symptoms. One dog, a 14-year-old black Lab named Guinness, experienced even more stout success.

Before the study period, Guinness started acting like anyone but himself. He was waking three or four times a night, pacing and panting as well as barking repeatedly. His restlessness and confusion disrupted the entire household.

“The owners were beside themselves,” Kalstrup said. “They were saying things like, ‘We can’t go on.’ ”

After the first week on Neutricks, the owners reported profound changes, the doctor said. Guinness was sleeping better and was more alert during the day. He also was more eager to seek attention. No side effects were reported.

When the 30-day trial period ended, the owners had one more question: Where can we get more?

“We were all amazed,” Kalstrup related.

Diagnose Early

At Westside, an AAHA-accredited small-animal practice, Guinness is among a growing number of senior patients seen by the clinic’s six doctors, including Ken Lambrecht, DVM, founding owner and clinical medical director.

Kalstrup said that even with awareness of CDS, signs can easily be missed. And connecting those symptoms to the disease is an inexact process. From 20 percent to as many as 75 percent of senior dogs show signs of age-related cognitive dysfunction, Landsberg said, with symptoms typically starting at age 9 or 10.

Because the disease is progressive, early diagnosis is critical, he said, noting that veterinarians often have to ask specific questions about senior pet behaviors to get the information needed for a diagnosis. Quincy provided a checklist that Kalstrup found instructive.

“Owners won’t necessarily volunteer information until it’s too late to do something about it,” Landsberg said. “Now we have a number of products that have been tested in an evidence-based way or against a control group, so there’s no reason not to ask the questions.”

The doctors agree that it’s important to perform baseline lab work and other tests to explore the possibility that other medical conditions might be causing the symptoms. Considerations include tumors, organ disease, and pain from osteoarthritis or other sources.

Neutricks is available only through licensed veterinarians because Quincy believes the supplement “represents an opportunity to create a veterinary-client dialogue about these geriatric symptoms that pet owners may overlook,” said David J. Merrick, general manager of Quincy Animal Health.

“I’m not foolish enough to say Neutricks will work every time,” Merrick added. “But we’re confident it will give pet owners a really good chance for success against age-related cognitive dysfunction.”

It helped Dexter and he loves it.
When Dexter was neutered his whole personality changed, he would just lay on the couch, would not play, would not go near his doggie friends. Our vet said to try Neutricks, it works, Dexter is back to being his old self again and he loves it he thinks it is a treat, he has been taking it for about a year and will probably continue for the rest of his life, but it sure works.

My Girl Is Starting to Come Back !!
It started so slowly it was hard to detect. We have 2 Boxers, both aged 10. Our girl, Tsunami, and our boy, Echo, were both starting to slow down a bit and sleeping a bit more (but then again, now in our mid/late 60's so are my husband and I). But Tsunami started to stare out the front window (she always looked out that window but somehow this was different, we started to refer to it as 'zoning out'). Then she started staring at the wall, the living room door. She started sleeping in places she'd never slept before. The worst for me was when she no long showed any reaction whatsoever to her name. It was so sad and I cried so often. I don't recall how I came across Neutricks but I was prepared to try anything. I started her on them and after a few days she seemed to have a bit more energy but that was all. Her weight hovers around 78-82 pounds (summer / winter). The bottle indicates 2 treats for dogs up to 80 pounds. Do I decided to up her to 3 a day. Within 4 days... more energy (she can only do so much due to arthritis), she is actually interested in her toys again, she hardly ever sleeps in weird places anymore, she does still 'zone out' but that has been cut easily by over 50%. My greatest joy is that now she is again responding to her name 75% of the time. It's only been 4 days since the dose was upped, so fingers crossed she'll improve some more. Best of all? Now when she looks at mommy and daddy we know she is starting to recognize us again because she is blessing us with her slurppy kisses again, which hadn't happened in a long time.

A must have for the senior dog
I was unsure that this would actually help to improve my senior dog's cognition, but I am a believer now! He's more alert and sharper now, where before he'd often stand staring vacantly at a wall for hours. He seems more engaged too. I highly recommend this product!

added years to my dogs life
I have a golden/retriever mix who has had seizures since she was a puppy and she is now 13 years old. As she has aged her seizures have become more frequent and had gotten to the point she was having several a week. I did not want to put her on steroids unless that was my only choice. A friend of mine suggested trying neutricks. After about 2 months her seizures were reduced to about 2 a month and now after taking neutricks for about 3 years she has not had a seizure in over a year. Thank you neutricks!!!! I have no doubt that my dog would not still be living if it were not for you!

It works!
My dog is 13 years old and began showing signs of CCD in late December. The vet tried every medication he could think of but nothing was working. My dog would pace, pant, shake, whine, use the bathroom in the house and was just completely not himself. After just a week of trying this medication I could see a marked improvement. No more using the bathroom in the house, no more pacing and no more shaking. It has now been close to a month and it is like I have my old dog back. He also has much more energy during the day than he did before. I only took a star off because I have to hide it in his food and this is a dog that will eat almost anything.

Great product and easy to administer...
After reading other people's experience using Neutricks to help treat their dog's CCD symptoms, we decided to get some after our 14-year old Yorkie started to exhibit similar characteristics of CCD at a rapid rate. It's been only 10 days since we started the product and she's been much calmer during the evening. We used to have sleepless nights with her pacing, walking into things and constant howling. She still shows some of these symptoms but Neutricks have helped reduce them to a much bearable level. She still wakes up in the middle of the night BUT she is able to go back to sleep within 1/2 hour and not 2 to 3 hours. As noted in other forums, all dogs with CCD seem to have varying degree of results using Neutricks but I would totally recommend it as an option for all those fur-parents who are looking for something to help their fur-loves. The chews are so nice and soft that it's easy to shape to any size for your dog and our girl totally gobbled them up at the first try. Also - Entirely Pets was amazing with shipping the product promptly and the customer service was top notch!

Work great with Dog with Dementia
My dog is 13 years old and she was diagnosed with dementia. The Vet advise was put her to sleep but I rejected it and then she recommended 4 types of supplements, this is one of them. My dog has made improvements and I am so happy with her. I am very satisficed with the result is not matter for how long she will stay with me. Do not giving up

Effective treatment
Our elderly pug is almost blind and has doggie Alzheimer's. She eats top-quality food - always has - and gets excellent vet care, but she was getting lost in the house and was often confused. We tried a couple of other things without seeing a difference, but the Neutricks is working. She's been on it for a little over two months now, and she's usually able to find her food and water, get around in the house and on the patio without help, and she doesn't get worried. She's a happy little dog and we're grateful.

Neutricks GREAT for SR Dogs!
I have been giving Neutricks to an elderly dog of mine and have been more than pleased with the energy boost that these have provided. She is in her 'golden years' and had lost the bounce in her step she'd enjoyed all her life. I honestly did not expect much, but there is a noticeable difference in her energy level and this will be a stable product I will use for my other dogs as they age.

Helped with the pacing
My 14-year-old female lab mix was showing signs of what I can only call "Sundowner's Syndrome." Pacing, panting, very nervous as soon as the sun began to set, and sometimes on a bad day she was doing it all day. It took about a month before the Neutricks kicked in, but it seems to make a difference. I am also giving her Senilife. The Neutricks she thinks is a treat, so no problem getting that in. The Senilife capsules are huge, so I've resorted to liver sausage to get those down. You could also puncture the capsule and squeeze out the liquid into the food, if your dog wouldn't mind the taste. (Annie did, wouldn't eat.) So I mostly credit the Neutricks with helping her calm down and have a better life in her golden years.

Improved Behavior
My 13 year old mini-dachshund was starting to show some signs of dementia: waking and roaming during the night and displaying some obsessive-compulsive behaviors- particularly licking. I bought Neutricks at the suggestion of my vet, and behavior improved by the end of the first week. He continues to get a daily doze with his breakfast.

Seems to Help
Second purchase of this product - this time for almost half of what I paid in a retail health store. My dog is 16, has dementia and assorted other issues, but still eats well and wants our company. The Neutricks seems to help her focus a little more and increase her awareness of her surroundings, at least part of the time. I use only half of the recommended weight dosage as she weighs only 10 pounds.

Didn't work well for us
This may help some dogs, but it didn't help us. I tried it with my 12 year old dog for about 2 1/2 months. After about 2 months he seemed to have gotten worse in his cognitive functions.
So I stopped giving it to him and we're switching to a different supplement.
I think this is worth a try if your pet has cognitive issues. It won't hurt. For us, it didn't help.

Worked just fine for my 17 y.o.
I cannot praise the product, but for my 17 y.o.caniche/cocker mix worked just fine.
I had a gap of 5-6 days due to delayed delivery when she was out of them and the symptoms came back rushing (spinning, day/night switch). As soon I got her back on the stuff, it went back to significantly diminished symptoms.
Definitely did not work 100% to bring her back to her old self, but t least i get the feeling she's more calm with it.
I am trying now to mix the Neurotricks treatement with 1/day Senilife.
Keep my fingers crossed and hopes up.

Neutricks
Our vet recommended Neutricks July 8, 2013, when we discovered our 15-year-old canine friend had an inoperable and non-treatable tumor. Along with some other medicine and diet changes, I am more than pleased to report he is still with us, and just returned from a 10-day Florida vacation. His level of alertness is astounding.

Noticeable change in my 16.8 year old Lucy
We have gone through about half the bottle and Lucy is doing so much better. She even barked the other day and she has not done that for over a year. Lucy runs in the yard when I get home and is looking at me again. She still paces at night but not as much as before. I do mix them in her food otherwise she most likely would not eat it. Neautricks has made a world of difference!

Worked for our 14 year old Aussie!
I've seen reports from people that indicate the Neutricks didn't help their dog but it made a big difference with our dog. He was almost back to his normal self after about 3 dosages. Your website sells the Neutricks for about 50% of the cost our vet sells it for. Thank you!

More than hoped for with Neutricks
Our Vet., Dr. Brooks, gave us hope of restoring our thirteen year old Labs vitality and mental alertness with your product "Neutricks".
After taking Neutricks for only three weeks both dogs were more alert, active, and the sparkle returned to their eyes.
After more than a year on Neutricks there is no doubt of the joyful restoration these dogs have experienced, and we certainly revel in their joy.
Thank you So much for making our dogs old years golden. Neutricks is the real deal!

Review for Neutricks for Senior Dogs (60 Soft Chews)
Our dog doesn't care for the taste of this, so we crush a tab and mix it in his food and he will eat it that way. He is 16 yrs old and it has helped him quite a bit with his cognitive function. He seems more alert and doesn't sleep so soundly all day.

Neutricks
Have been using it for a while now and have not noticed any difference in Holly. I tried it on the advice of my vet to hopefully, help her cognition, memory... So far, nothing has changed.

Do you have to have your vet's approval to give Neutricks to your dog?
4 Answers
No, it's not restricted. Our vet suggested it, and we bought our first jar from her, but she told us it was available on-line if we wanted to look for it there. It worked very well for the first 6-9 months, but our dog also had other health issues that took over physically rather than neurologically. Good luck to you.

No, you don't but it's always good to consult with your vet. Sadly Neutricks is no longer being made. I have yet to find a product that helps with the canine cognitive dysfunction symptoms my 13 yo German Shepherd exhibits. So disappointed.
