Dogs With Dementia Can Have A Lower Energy Level And Not Want To Play, But Can Still Live A Healthy Life

If you notice these signs in your pet, consult with your pet doctor to find the best course of treatment for your dog. Dogs with dementia can get lost in their own house or can't figure out how to get back in from outside. They may bark when a family member or friend comes over.

They can even be aggressive when they are usually very friendly. This aggression may be towards a few people. Some medications can be prescribed to your dog to help lessen the signs. Dog dementia is also called canine cognitive dysfunction. It is very similar to Alzheimer's in people. If your dog shows any of these signs, do not panic. Then, make an appointment with a veterinary professional. Your veterinarian will discuss the different signs of dementia and the various treatment options that can be done.
