Sadly, many Australian dogs suffer from anxiety and mental health challenges, these challenges arise due to not only genetics but also environmental impacts such as poor breeding, poor quality gut health of the mother passed onto babies, highly processed diets, imbalanced diets, and environmental factors that have impacted gut health just for starters.
With our signature probiotic product "Gut Dust" we saw some outstanding improvements in mental health in some dogs so we wanted to create a product that had a big focus on supporting mental health and "Brain Crumbs" was born.
Brain Crumbs is not going to magically heal your dog of behaviour issues, what it can do is help support your dog's gut with specifically selected strains that can support mental function. The gut is the dog's 2nd brain, this is where the love hormone serotonin is largely created (around 95%!) and because the gut and the brain have a highway between them we know via various studies that a healthy gut influences healthy moods.
In addition, without knowing, we humans can also create/contribute to mental health challenges in dogs such as separation anxiety, behaviours related to pent up energy/frustration, and lack of knowledge how to train and support a dog, for example, so we recommend you give your dog the best opportunity at recovery and work with a trainer who is experienced in your dog's challenges whilst Brain Crumbs supports the process.
Try it for 90 days, what do you have to lose?
We recommend that when adding a new supplement that pet parents use them for at least 3 months as many supplements have accumulative effectiveness and need time to begin to work.
Working on gut health is not a quick fix it can take months-years, it can take a lifetime, but recovery starts with positive steps towards a bigger goal and Brain Crumbs can be one of the many tools in your behaviorally challenged dogs tool kit..
Superboost Brain Crumbs
Add Chill Out Dude which is a blend of medicinal flowering herbs that can have a calming effect. Unlike Brain Crumbs, Chill Out Dude can be used in terms of acute stress such as a storm, fireworks, a competition, etc.
You can also super-boost Brain Crumbs by kicking kibble and other highly processed foods to the curb and start feeding a fresh food diet that better supports your dog's gut health and mood. Science has found that dogs consuming kibble have a lower diversity of good bacteria and diversity is what a healthy gut looks like. You can learn more about fresh food feeding by joining us at our fresh food support group.
My Doggie Brain Crumbs contains 9 strains of beneficial bacteria with billions of colony-forming units, containing species resistant to acid to give these little gut bugs the best opportunity of reaching their destination. We paired with the amazing resistant starch from Australian ladyfinger green bananas supporting Australian farmers to become the ultimate gut health superfood that not only supports your dogs gut healthy but can support your dogs mental health.
Ingredients are our special selection of probiotic bacteria and green banana starch. No fillers, additives etc.
Strains & genus selected are the most researched and have links to assisting and supporting mental health including:
Bifidobacterium bifidum BBi32, Bifidobacterium breve BBr60, Bifidobacterium longum BL21, Lactobacillus helveticus LH76, Lactobacillus plantarum Lp90, Lactobacillus rhamnosus LRa05, Lactobacillus casei LC89, Lactobacillus brevis LB01, Lactobacillus animalis BA12.

Suggestion on how to include in your dog's diet:
Simply mix the recommended amount in with your dog's food or wet food such as meat, sardines, yogurt, kefir, etc. either daily or every 2nd day. You can double dose in times of digestive distress. If your dog is currently taking antibiotics, give Brain Crumbs no less than 2 hours after giving antibiotics.
We recommend that once open, that you store it in the fridge to maintain the high level of CFU's. Do not freeze and mix in with hot food.

Brain Crumbs is for apparently healthy dogs where pet parents would like to support their dog's mental health. Brain Crumb's resistant starch affects the gut microbes and exerts microbial effects. Studies have been conducted that show that resistant starch can change the function of gut bacteria and help with reducing chances of developing colon cancer and inflammatory bowel disease, however, if your dog is or has been affected by Candida yeast then resistant starch which feeds bacteria may not be appropriate for your dog if your dog has a higher level of harmful bacteria - resistant starch cannot pick and choose which bacteria it feeds - please discuss the use of this product with your Vet / Dermatologist. If your dog has a medical condition such as IBS or similar, you should take the advice of your Vet in relation to which strains & gensus they feel are most suited to your dog's medical condition. We cannot give you medical advice.
My Doggie Brain Crumbs is typically well tolerated by the majority of dogs. There is a possibility that some dogs may display symptoms of digestive upset which may be an intolerance or allergy to green banana starch.
Will this supplement work for your dog?
There is only one way to see - we try our best to price our supplements to make them affordable enough to give it a whirl and see if your dog will benefit positively like the other dogs reaping the benefits. In some cases, we have multiple supplements that have similar outcomes so you may like to try one for 3 months and then try another and see which one your dog responded to better.
Please remember, this is not going to be a miracle cure for your dog's behaviour, it is simply a tool in your toolbox. Healing your dog's gut health takes time, you're in for the long haul on this one, not a quick fix, unfortunately.
