Designed to promote optimal brain function in older dogs and cats, Aktivait is a nutraceutical supplement packed with natural antioxidants and other specially selected nutrients. The product is designed to help support health and mental alertness, as well as maintaining vitality in more senior animals. Aktivait for dogs and cats may help support overall life quality when given daily.

What causes age-related behavioural changes?

Humans and animals produce harmful chemicals called free radicals on a daily basis. Free radicals are detremental to the body as they cause damage to cells they are in contact with. Young healthy pets can naturally produce antioxidants which neutralise these free radicals thus negating damage to cells, in particular the brain cells.

However, an increase in age leads to an increase in the production of these free radicals, yet this is coupled with a decrease in antioxidant production, leading to the free radicals remaining in the body and doing damage to the brain and other cells in the body. The free radicals are one of the main contributors to the deterioration of life quality when the pet is older.

How does AKTIVAIT help manage these changes?

AKTIVAIT is the first supplement to combine all the nutrients necessary for promoting optimum brain function. It contains a complex formula of antioxidants (vitamins C and E, selenium, co-enzyme Q 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). This combination of powerful ingredients helps to prevent free radical damage and improve electrical transmission between nerve cells in the brain.

When should I give my pet 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 are seen. It can also be given to your pet 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 pet’s food or given whole.

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.

Evidence that Aktivait is benficial for older dogs

In this study AKTIVAIT® was given from day 0 to 42, and the deterioration in behavioural changes following day 42 demonstrates the need for ongoing administration to maintain the benefits of AKTIVAIT®

At what rate should I give AKTIVAIT to my pet?

55 On the advice of our vet we started giving Activait to our 16 year old Lhasa Apso at least a year ago and he is remarkable for his age. Nobody believes he is the age he is.

55 Very helpful for the older dog
Verified Purchase

By on 25 November 2020

This product was recommended to me by my vet for my 14 year old Jack Russell who was showing early signs of forgetfulness/dementia. She has now been on Aktivait for at least 6 months and I definitely see an improvement in her general wellbeing. Far less looking vacantly into space and generally her whole demeanour is better. They are little capsules which I empty into her food once a day. Well worth trying.

Have been using now for about two weeks and think there is a definite improvement in her mental outlook. More playful, looking for her food which she hasn't done before, seems a lot more happy in herself.

Gill Smith

My 13 y old cocker spaniel has 12 units metacam daily. Is that OK with Aktivait?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes Aktivait is safe to use alongside Metacam. I recommend following your vet's advice on the doseage for the Metacam and I cannot comment on whether 12 units is an appropraite dose. The dose for the Aktivait can be found on the side of the packaging.

Can i used with other meds


My dog is on long term meds, can i use Aktivait with Destolit , Samalyn Gabapentin and synulox please?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes Aktivait is safe to use alongside Destolit, Samilyn, Gabapentin and Synulox. I would recommend discussing it's use with your vet though as it sounds they have a treatment plan in place for your dog's current conditions. Whilst Aktivait may be safe alongside these drugs, I cannot guarantee it is appropriate to use with your dog's underlying condition.

Safe to use with medication?


Hi can you please advise if I can use Aktivait with Vitofyllin 50mg. Many thanks for your help in advance.

  • VioVet Staff

Yes both Aktivait and Vitofyllin 50mg are safe to use together.

Dosage for a slightly overweight dog


My 15yr old yorkie cross is 11 kilos, due to being a little overweight. His regular weight is 8-9kilo. We've just started him on 1 tablet a day, medium to large dog capsules on vet advice. If he loses weight, should he go down to small dog capsules? And, as this diagnosis has been based solely on age and behaviour, (we are giving aktivait a go to see improvement before MRI scan for something more sinister), should it turn out he doesn't have dementia, are these capsules safe to be giving him?

  • VioVet Staff

It is always best to dose according to weight so yes he should go down to the small dog capsules if he loses weight- unless your vet advises to stay on the bigger dose. Aktivait is very safe and should not cause any problems if it turns out that your dog does not have dementia.

Dose aktivait have side effect?

Sohee Kim

  • From: Gyeonggi-Do, Korea, Republic of

My dog is 9years and she took a aktivait yesterday for first time in her life. and she had diarrhea today! is there any dog has simmilar symptom? or should I stop giving her a aktivate?

  • VioVet Staff

Aktivait does not normally cause diarrhoea. It might just be coincidence. I would give a half dose of Aktivait for a week or so, along with a bland diet (chicken, fish, rice) and see how things go. The diarrhoea will probably clear up by itself. If not then you might need to stop the Aktivait for a while at least. (If your dog seems otherwise unwell at all then you should take her to a vet of course.)

Is this product Ok for dogs that have epilepsy?

  • VioVet Staff

Epilepsy is an unpredictable condition and it is usually unknown what triggers any particular seizure. However as far as we are aware there is no likelihood of Aktivait having any sort of adverse effect on a dog with this condition. If Aktivait seems appropriate for your dog otherwise, I would expect it to be perfectly safe.

Safe with meds?


Is it safe to give Aktivait to my 15 y o Cocker Spaniel - she already takes amlodipine (5mg per day), fortekor, tramadol (25mg per day) and noroclav (5mg per day)? Many thanks.

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Jane,

I have just double checked with the vet, he says it will be fine to give her Aktivait as it is simply a nutritional supplement,

Hope this helps,

Safe to use with medication?


My elderly pomeranian is on heart medication. Fortekor, cardisure and furusimide. Is Aktivait safe to use with these 3 things and also for heart patients.

  • VioVet Staff

Aktivait is often given to elderly dogs with heart problems and this is safe to do. It will not interact adversely with any of the medications used to treat the heart problem.
