As our loving companions start growing old, you may notice some behaviour changes that come along with the grey hairs...confusion, disorientation, dogzheimers.
Call it what you will, but canine dementia (known clinically as canine cognitive dysfunction) can be a problem. Just like humans, dogs can suffer from many of the same symptoms.
Doggy dementia doesn't have to spiral out of control. There are treatments available to control and slow down the progression of this condition. Hills Science Diet Vitality food is a diet is designed specifically for our golden oldies, containing B vitamins for brain health.
PAW Complete Calm is another friendly addition to your pets diet, helping with some of the anxieties faces with doggy dementia. There are also prescription medications available to improve any severe symptoms.
If you feel your dog is experiencing any of these conditions with age, feel free to give us a call and we can book you in to see one of our amazing vets. Help is just a phone call away!
