45 Been Buying for a year
Verified Purchase

The amount of seizures for my dog has not decreased, so I do not think it helps with that unfortunately. However, he does like the biscuits so we have bought regularly with the hope it keeps him at least stable along with his medication. We also get butternut box fresh cooked food for him & mix it with a cup of these, which he LOVES.

I bought this food following a recommendation from my vet to help support my dog’s cognitive function. He seems to like the food and his neurological symptoms don’t seem to have got any worse so am assuming it is helping. I also got 25% off.

Nero care

S

  • VioVet customer since 2020
  • From: , United Kingdom

I have a epileptic dog who has 1 fit every 3 months hes not on medication because they only last 2 min max .
Has anyone tried this on it's own

  • VioVet Staff

This diet is specially formulated to help reduce seizure frequency when fed as an adjunct to veterinary therapy. It is a veterinary diet so you should check your vet advises it is safe to use before switching your pet onto it. Below is an exert from the RVC website regarding the research backing the diet's effects:

The team at the RVC demonstrated this in a study that showed a diet rich
in medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) can help control seizures
1.
The study was a six-month randomised, placebo-controlled,
double-blinded crossover study conducted in dogs with idiopathic
epilepsy that were also being administered AEDs. It demonstrated for the
first time that a test diet with MCT oil can have positive effects on
reduction of seizure frequency when fed as an adjunct to veterinary
therapy (71% of dogs showed a reduction in seizure frequency, 48% of
dogs showed a 50% or greater reduction in seizure frequency and 14% of
dogs achieved complete seizure freedom).

Unfortunately I cannot find any specific data regarding the use of the diet on it's own. Purina or your vet may be able to advise on this.

Which one to feed

Geoffrey Thompson

Which one is most suitable for my dog who suffers seizures with epilepsy. Vet as advised us to go on this food for him but not sure which one to buy .
Can you advise please.

  • VioVet Staff

The Purina Pro Plan NeuroCare (NC) diet is the perfect one for your epileptic dog, this is it's intended use. Research performed by the Royal Veterinary College demonstrated that diets rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) can reduce seizure frequency. The NeuroCare diet was specifically formulated with this in mind. It is important to keep up your dog's normal seizure treatment plan and medications though. You should chat to your vet before changing the doseage or starting any new diets like this.

Size of kibble

Georgina

I have been recommended Purina Pro Plan NC for my 1Kilo weight Chihuahua who has epilepsy. Can you please advise the size of the kibble as she has tiny teeth and missing teeth. She needs very small kibble.

Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Hello,

Thank you for your enquiry.

The kibble is roughly the size of a 20 pence coin.

I hope that helps,

Kellie.
