Post Dogs & Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome Similar To Dementia
I thought this article was very interesting. To be honest, I didn't know that dogs could have a dementia-like illness.

That is interesting. I knew dogs could become 'senile' in old age but didn't know it was on the increase.

Really makes you think about the air we breathe, the toxins in our food and health & beauty products, what's going into our water supply, etc.! It's frightening.
