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?

15 Didn't work for my dog
Verified Purchase

By on 9 June 2021

My dog was anxious, this seems to have made him worse, he now barks every night and won't stop till we go down to him. He was sick the second time we gave it to him, so I can't recommend this at all.

55 Beloved 14yr old labradoodle
Verified Purchase

By on 16 May 2021

Ok so he’s really old, I get that. Had previously used RenewMe when signs of dementia began aged 13 and was happy with result. But Scooter recently seemed disorientated and withdrawn from company again and didn’t like to be petted so tried these. He’s now back to his 12yr old self -enjoys a quiet fuss, greets us at door etc. Less disorientated. Hasn’t helped with his night time soiling but so happy to have my boy back in the room! Expensive but what price do you put on the comfort of your beloved pet?! Heartily recommend.

55 Magic capsules!

Lazarus, who is 14, seemed to have forgotten his toilet training and weeing mostly on my bed instead of in the garden! I asked my vet for help and she recommended Aktivait. They seem to have refreshed his brain and reminded him of his house training!

55 Aktivait for dogs
Verified Purchase

By on 24 March 2021

I bought activait capsules for my 17 year old Patterdale. I'm not sure if it has helped with his confusion yet, but he has only been taking it for a couple of weeks. He has however stopped panting at night and is walking further and enjoying his walks. I feel it is worth trying to keep him as good as he is now, and will continue using it.

55 Dementia in dogs
Verified Purchase

By on 14 March 2021

We've only had our dog on these for 16 days, but we're already beginning to see results.
Her eyes are brighter, she's not shaking as badly and some days, she's back to acting like a puppy, instead of 11 years old.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Aktivait Capsules for Dogs & Cats, including answers from our team.

Side effect

Denise Hunter

My 12year old cavalier has been on Aktivait for quite a while ,just recently she has started to drink a lot more water ,she is also on Pro Flora pro biotic ,can these make her thirsty .

  • VioVet Staff

This supplement should not cause increased thirst. Any adverse reactions would be similar to that of a food intolerance, diarrhoea/vomiting or allergic signs. I recommend discussing the increased thirst with your vet as there is likely an underlying cause.

Side effects

Glenda Bott

Are there any reported side effect to taking this supplement. My miniature schnauzer suffers from colitis (wheat and gluten intolerance). Also he has injections monthly for allergies.
Not sure if this is going to start a flair up.
Please advise.
Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

This product is a supplement and so is classed similarly to food. There are no listed side effects but there is a rare chance of an allergy or intolerance to one of the ingredients occuring. The ingredient list is as follows:

Each capsule contains DHA/EPA
35mg, L-carnitine 13.5mg,Vitamin C 20mg, N-acetyl cysteine 20mg, Alpha
lipoic acid 10mg, Vitamin E 10mg, Acetyl l-carnitine 5mg, Co Enzyme Q10
1mg, Phosphotidylserine 1mg.

The above ingredient list does not include wheat or gluten so it is likely safe your dog. There is always the rare chance of an unidentified intolerance/allergy though unfortunately but this is very unlikely.

My dog has pancreatis and has to have a low fat diet, would Actvait impact this at all

  • VioVet Staff

Aktivait should have very little impact in your dog's pancreatitis, it is not fat based and will be given in very small quantities compared to the majority of your dog's normal diet. However any change in diet can set off pancreatitis in some severely affected dogs. I recommend running any dietary changes, including adding in a supplement, past your vet to be safe.

Elizabeth Taylor

Hi, Can I give this alongside Metacam for arthritis and a Vetpro Liver Support. He is a 15 year old JRT. Thank you!

  • VioVet Staff

Yes this supplement can safely be given alongside Metacam and Vetpro Liver Support. If your vet is treating an underlying condition, in particular the liver, then I recommend you run any dietary changes past them though.

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.

12 October 2020 at 8:05pm

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.

14 September 2020 at 12:23pm

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.
