Be aware of signs such as confusion, disorientation, and changes in behavior that may indicate cognitive decline.
If you suspect cognitive decline, consult your veterinarian for a proper diagnosis and guidance on management.
Keep your senior dog mentally active with puzzles, interactive toys, and new experiences to challenge their mind.
Maintaining a consistent daily routine can help reduce anxiety and confusion in senior dogs.
Consider a diet rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, which may support brain health. Consult your vet for suitable supplements.
Regular, gentle exercise can improve blood flow to the brain and promote mental sharpness.
