Sundowning and Senior Dogs
If you have an aging pet, you may have experience with sundowners, part of canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CDS), also called doggie dementia. Sundowners causes disorientation, anxiety, sleep disturbances, and other behavioral changes, and can be challenging for senior dogs' guardians to manage. In this webinar, Helen St. Pierre will discuss signs and symptoms, interventions to discuss with your vet, and strategies to help both you and your dog.
