Dog Dementia Signs and How to Help Your Senior Animal 

Dementia can affect dogs just as it can humans. When dementia symptoms first appear in a dog, 

it may display nervousness, disorientation, and withdrawal.  

There may not be a cure for dementia, but the greatest way to help your pet cope is to catch it early and give them sympathetic care.

The pet's capacity for rational thought, memorization of learnt actions, and object, person, or location recognition is impaired as a result. 

Other names for this condition include canine cognitive dysfunction (CCD) and cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CDS).   

Similar to Alzheimer's disease, dementia in dogs occurs when the brain of an aging 

dog undergoes changes that disrupt communication between brain cells.
