    DefaultCanine cognitive dysfunction syndrome

    Does anyone have any experience of cognitive dysfunction syndrome? My poor Bailey is 10 and all of a sudden appears to be failing. Last night was the worst so far-he just couldn't settle all night and was panting and huffing and puffing. He is staring at the walls for what seems a long time and just is not himself. I have come home from work today and he has pood all over which he hasn't done since he was a pup. I am distraught at thinking this is the start of the end-he is still my baby :-(

    Have you seen a vet? I woud suspect an intestinal problem before senility based on your description.

    Vet visit would be good. There is also a supplement Cholodine that is supposed to help with mental function in the seniors.

    Panting, huffing, puffing and staring off into space can also indicate a dog is in pain. The pooing could too. I'd get to a vet asap!

    Vet ASAP. It could also be a thyroid condition.

    Good thoughts for him. Ten years is too young.

    We had a lab diagnosed with that when she was 15, she lived another year. Although she was "spacey" that was the only symptom in common with yours. She mostly did things like forget where she was,what she was doing or where her bed was...but she never forgot her food bowl.
