The Doctor should speak a little more clearly when recommending medication or food as treatment, or include it in the slides.

Description

Age is not a disease but Cognitive Dysfunction is! Cognitive Dysfunction is a common disorder seen in our aging dog and cat population, and the process can begin as early as 7 years of age.

In this session Dr. E'Lise Christensen discusses our current understanding of the causes, the clinical signs, making the diagnosis, prevention, supportive care, cognitive hospice, and quality of life considerations for affected pets. Dr. Christensen also discusses the case management of "Miles" - a 12 year old dog that was referred to her as a euthanasia consult because of Cognitive Dysfunction.
