COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME
CDS is probably under-reported and under-diagnosed. Sadly, the problem behaviors may be mistaken for behavioral problems, which means not only is the primary problem of CDS not addressed, the pet may be put through unnecessary and misguided scolding or punishment programs.
The average pet owner is not well equipped to note when their dog’s memory is failing. Common symptoms such as night time waking or confusion may also be under reported or under recognized until the impairment is extreme.
Prevention and support: It is supplemented with a combination of fatty acids, antioxidants (vitamins C and E, b- carotene, selenium, flavonoids, and carotenoids), eg Vital Greens Powder Supplement, as well as DL-a-lipoic diet and L-carnitine, which are intended to enhance mitochondrial function. Research in a laboratory study, the combined effect of the enriched diet plus the enriched environment provided the greatest improvement.
Commonly the primary owner concern is nighttime waking.
This may be an urgent and even life-threatening concern as owner’s faced with many consecutive nights of sleep deprivation and a feeling of hopelessness may elect euthanasia. Promptly reducing anxiety and reestablishing normal sleep-wake cycles may be sufficient to ease the crisis of sleep deprivation. Melatonin drops (natural hormone), may be useful as part of a bedtime routine ritual and may be best given 30 minutes before bedtime. Optimally melatonin should not be redosed at other times of day when used to establish nighttime sleeping patterns.
I most effective method of absorbing this natural sleep hormone is via oral dosing.
