Diseases and Symptoms: Senility

The term canine cognitive dysfunction was introduced to describe geriatric behavioral changes not solely attributable to a general medical condition. These behavioral changes fall mostly into four categories namely loss of cognition and recognition, loss of house training, disorientation, and changes in the sleep-wake cycle. Old dogs do not all exhibit signs of cognitive dysfunction. Other terms such as senile dementia and senile degeneration of the brain have been used to describe this condition. That is why nutritional support of the brain tissue is of vital importance.
