Sometimes I wonder if my dear departed Ragamuffin had dementia. In the months before her death, she had a habit of walking in a tight circle from time to time. I hope that I can keep my current fur babies Aida and Helena healthy both physically and mentally for a long time!

It's the 26th here & it's my precious Wolfgang's 15th birthday!!

Our vet gave me a questionnaire last week, called the Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Rating Scale (CCDR).
0-39 = normal
40-49 = At risk
50+ = Canine Cognitive Dysfunction (CCD)

He score 39, YEAH!!!!

All good solid points to know, for kitties.
I think this can apply to dogs too, imho. js

Thanks Barb for this informative post, and passing this on too. xo
