2017 – The Tell Tail Signs of Ageing: Cognitive Dysfunction

  •  
by on August 08, 2017

Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder of senior dogs characterised by a gradual loss of memory and learning, and reduced problem-solving ability. Many owners can recognise the signs of cognitive dysfunction, but few do anything about it, believing that they are an inevitable part of normal ageing. Behaviour Specialist Dr Kersti Seksel will explore how we can make a difference to these patients and improve their quality of life through diet, environmental enrichment, and medical management.
