Cognitive dysfunction is a progressive degenerative disorder that affects the pets ability to cope with changes, memory and learning, and adjust to new situations. Both dogs and cats start showing cognitive decline much earlier than owners are able to detect. In part, the problem is due to inadequate screening. We, as vets, do not ask the right questions during routine visits to the practice. This lecture covers the presentation of cognitive decline, screening, pathophysiology and pathoanatomy, and tools to manage pets who suffer from this condition. At the end of the lecture, you will be able to identify pets with cognitive dysfunction, offer the owners hope, and discuss the quality of life.
