Disorientation: A Symptom of Canine Cognitive Dysfunction
Posted January 13, 2009on:
Canine cognitive dysfunction has many symptoms that can appear all at once or can appear independently. Sometimes these symptoms can just be a manifestation of just old age, but as the symptoms get worse, you can tell that your senior dog needs help. Disorientation is one of the tell-tale signs that your dog could be suffering from Canine Cognitive Dysfunction. They will act confused and may wander aimlessly throughout the yard or house. Sometimes they will get stuck and try to come in on the wrong side of the door. In severe cases your dog could be stuck in corners or behind furniture and not know how to get out. They will whine or just give up and stay where they are even though you are calling them.
