In today's episode, Lisa narrates her very personal story about her beloved dog, Oliver, who was diagnosed with Doggie Dementia when he was about 13 years old. Yes, unbeknownst to Lisa at the time, dogs actually do develop dementia, just like humans. She started noticing some very peculiar behaviors in her dog, but at first, not knowing that dogs really do get dementia, she thought that maybe she was just reading into the signs and symptoms that he started displaying that reminded her of humans who lived with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. At first, she dismissed it as a coincidence because she had been working with humans living with dementia for so long. But his peculiar behaviors continued, so she took him to the vet, who diagnosed him with doggie dementia, or Canine Cognitive Dysfunction, which is synonymous with Alzheimer's disease in humans. Lisa shares with her audience the signs and symptoms to look out for in case you suspect that your dog might have dementia. It is estimated that 68% of dogs will suffer from dementia by the age of 15!
