It sometimes seems as though that old dog of yours is just being cantankerous. It starts to have accidents in the house, must be because it is too lazy to go outside. And then there is that thing it is doing at night. For years it has slept at the foot of your bed and now it is roaming around the house at all hours and you’re not getting any sleep. And last week, it got stuck in a corner, started barking and wouldn’t backup. He reminds you of your old Aunt Millie who has Alzheimer’s. Do dogs get dementia? Today’s guest is Dr. Elizabeth Head, she is an associate professor at the University of Kentucky. She has been studying the aging canine brain in hopes of finding answers to what is also happening to dogs and to dog’s best friend, man. Questions or comments?
