Does anyone here have experience with Dog Dementia? aka Canine Cognitive Dysfunction?

My dog is about 13 and he is just showing signs like not listening to me (but i think his hearing is fine), peeing inside at night when he never/rarely used to etc.

I'd hate to have kick him outside at night after all these years, but Mrs CD is losing patience cleaning the piss off the kids playmats. other than that he's a wonderful dog, especially with the kids (although of course he's probably not ecstatic about being bumped down the pecking order).

Ragdolls are beautiful, i had one for years, had to say goodbye about 9 months ago, as he got Stents, there was too many for the Vet to operate.

Killed me, my little boy says weekly he misses him
Agree mate, obviously :smiley: ... sorry for your loss also .!!

I had a pet a Salmon and a small school of Prawns and a pet Turkey called Mr Gobbles, once...
Actually, how slack is this..my dad had a pet duck when he was a kid. He turns up for dinner one day..he starts eating..when he finishes they asked him if he liked it..he said yeh..They said good because it was his pet duck..than laughed at him! I guess that is why Balmain boys don’t cry..tough upbringing.

Was there anything you did or could do to slow it down or help the dog?

If it is CCD then there's medication available to treat dogs. If you haven't gone to the Vet then go asap because it is degenerative and the earlier it's picked up the better.

Dogs are weird and it could be anything though, Vet should find something and hopefully it's not too bad. My dog literally faked a limp with whimpering for a few hours...let him outside to take a piss and he broke character when he saw a bird and decided to chase after it.
