Can dogs get Alzheimer’s?

As our furry friends age, they may start to experience some cognitive decline. This is similar to what happens with human beings as we get older and is often referred to as “canine dementia.” Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CCDS) is the most common form of cognitive decline in dogs and affects both their mental and physical well-being. Early symptoms include changes in sleep patterns, increased anxiety, and decreased interest in food and toys. As the condition progresses, dogs may experience disorientation, confusion, and loss of basic motor skills. While there is no cure for CCDS, there are ways to help your dog manage the condition and enjoy a good quality of life. With proper management, dogs with CCDS can still enjoy spending time with their families and engaging in activities they enjoy.

While Alzheimer’s disease is most commonly associated with humans, it can also occur in dogs. Canine Alzheimer’s disease is caused by the same factors as human Alzheimer’s, including genetics and age. However, the symptoms of canine Alzheimer’s can be different from those seen in humans. For instance, many dogs with Alzheimer’s become disoriented and lose their ability to recognize familiar people and places. They may also have difficulty performing familiar tasks, such as going for a walk or asking to be let outside. As the disease progresses, dogs may experience changes in mood and behavior, becoming more anxious or aggressive. Ultimately, canine Alzheimer’s disease is a debilitating condition that can greatly reduce the quality of life for affected dogs and their owners.
