Mommy thinks I may be going senile. I seem to lose track of where mommy is/forget how to go looking for her. I've always been vocal, but lately I've been barking for no apparent reason (unless it's to announce that I'm on the wrong side of the door or that I'm having trouble with the stairs and need my harness).
The symptoms are fairly mild, but she wants to be as prepared as possible to help as much as possible.
Thank you for posting the link to Duncan's thread. I had not thought about Samwise's brother Lancelot's pooping in the house as being part of a loss of nerve sensation due to arthritis in his spine. I think he has that. I'm taking him to the vet soon.
He often forgets to eat and sometimes stands around like he's not sure where to go or what to do. Makes me sad.
if i click the link,it brings me to another forum thread with the same topic.
and i know there are meds for it,but she is turning 13 in november and i do understand that she is getting old and that that dreadfull day will come that we must say goodbey to eichother,sooner or later.
so all i know now,that misty isn't alone with this confusion behavior.
i think than i must look on the net myself,because i don't have much help from my vet either about this.
he says it's normal for old dogs to get confused behavior.
but what i want to know...
how bad can that behavoir get?
and can it get so bad that it means i must put her to sleep?
i don't even want to think about that
