As humans age, they experience cognitive decline. Unfortunately for our senior canine companions, this is a reality for them as well.
According to veterinary neurologist Dr. Curtis Dewey:
It is estimated that between 14%-35% of the pet dog population develops cognitive decline as they age but this number is likely an underestimation of the true number. This is because many pet owners believe that cognitive decline is a normal aspect of aging in dogs. To a certain extent this is true because over 50% of senior dogs aged 11-12 years old experience age-related decline while 70% of dogs over the age of 15 experience cognitive decline. However, did you know that your pooch may start to show evidence of brain changes as early as 4-6 years of age? Our Cognicaps, canine cognitive function supplements, promote healthy brain function.
Signs Your Furry Friend May Need Cognicaps
The effects of cognitive dysfunction may cause your pet to display unusual behavior. Pacing around for no reason, becoming vocal at night, sleeping during the day, remaining awake at night, and urinating/defecating in inappropriate areas are all signs of cognitive decline.
Another sign to keep watch for is when your happy pup begins to display signs of stress. A bubbly personality may suddenly become withdrawn from their loved ones. Sounds that didn’t used to trouble them before may now be a trigger.
It’s always important to consult with your trusted veterinarian about what your next steps should be, and always feel free to ask about our products! Dr. Fossum’s is created by Veterinarians, and trusted by Veterinarians.
