Known by many names, Senior Dog Dementia is the slow and steady decline of a dog’s cognitive function. Also called Canine Cognitive Dysfunction, Doggy Alzheimer’s Disease and Dog Dementia, Senior Dog Dementia steals your dog’s mind much like Alzheimer’s Disease does in human patients.
Is there life after a diagnosis of Senior Dog Dementia? There certainly is, and Murphy is proof of that fact. At 16-1/2 years old, Murphy is thriving 1-1/2 years after his symptoms started.
