For those of us with older dogs, I think this is a very helpful post -- a vet writing on this condition, 'dog Alzheimers':

Very informative. I do see some minimal signs of this in Sydney :(, but not too bad.

Wow, that's a great site and informative stuff! Sad to think that even our furry friends are prone to this disease.

I have several friends who have used Anipryl for their dogs with great success. It can take up to 3-4 weeks to see all the results, if indeed it works for your dog (which it doesn't work for evey dog). I've also been told the affects seem to only work for 1 1/2 to 2 years, and that one shouldn't wait till the symptoms are severe, as it's not as affective at that point.
