I came across an article on Canine Cognitive Dysfunction and thought it would be good information for everyone to have. Basically CCD is much like Alzheimers in humans. After I did some research, I realized that the two older dogs we lost last summer, were probably in the early stages of CCD. Their’s never progressed far enough to be an issue, but I am glad I have the information in case I need it in in the future. Like Alzheimers, there are treatments, but there is no cure. Besides deep sleeping habits and zoning out in a corner, there are several other abnormal behaviors to note. Take a look at this article from Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice. As always if you have questions or concerns, be sure to consult your vet.
