If you are looking for information about dementia in dogs, or moral support if you have already know your dog has dementia, you have come to the right place.
My dog Cricket was diagnosed with canine cognitive dysfunction, also called dementia or doggie Alzheimer’s, in 2011 at the age of 15. She had been showing signs even before that.
For the rest of her days I worked to make her life as happy and safe as possible, and have shared what I have learned with others. She lived a good life for two more years.
Many visitors come here trying to figure out whether their dogs are affected, and if so what to do about it. On this site I have photos and videos that demonstrate the signs of canine cognitive dysfunction. I have detailed information on the symptoms and treatment of the condition, including a printable symptoms checklist you can take to your vet. I share general tips on how best to care for a senior dog. I also have information that may help you make a decision about euthanasia if such a decision becomes necessary.
Later in 2015 I will be releasing an e-book on loving and living with a dog with dementia. Please sign up in the sidebar if you would like to be notified when the book is available.
Take a look around, leave me a comment about your dog, or make a suggestion about what you would like to see. Here’s wishing happiness for you and your dog.
