Alzheimer's disease - Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CDS)

Herbal treatments for dogs and cats to help limit and prevent Alzheimer's (Cognitive Dsyfunction) and related symptoms.

The endocrine system interacts with many organs and bodily systems, and the adrenal and thyroid glands plays a major role in providing critical trace nutrient support to all glands and tissue, and the adrenals can become stressed and fatigued, also affecting the liver, duodenum, and kidneys.

The adrenal glands help the body adapt to stress through the release of natural steroids and hormones. With chronic stress, age and disease, the adrenals can become fatigued, affecting many bodily systems, including performance and memory. Natural supplements function as a brain tonic to provide neuro-protective support for cognitive disorder such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, promoting healthy brain ecology and function, and maintaining healthy concentration, focus, memory and mental alertness.

As our pets age they become vulnerable to cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Cat and dog Alzheimer’s, also called Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CDS), is a degenerative neurological disorder that presents itself with a variety of symptoms including disorientation, memory loss, confusion, and behavior and personality changes.

In animals, it’s difficult to distinguish between the normal signs of aging and the early signs of Alzheimer’s, although disorientation, lethargy and decreased interaction are common. While Alzheimer’s is typically associated with an older animal, certain breeds of cats and dogs are at a greater risk. The onset of the disease is now known to be linked to a build up of a nerve-damaging protein called beta amyloid found in the brain. This protein builds up plague which inhibits cognitive signals to brain neurons, but brain chemistry changes and lesions in the brain can also be reasons for the onset of CDS,

Common symptoms of Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome:

Does not respond to name or familiar commands

Does not recognize or is startled by family members, sounds, toys

Appears lost in familiar places, including house and yard

Becomes trapped behind furniture or room corners

There is currently no known cure for Alzheimer’s, but there are supplements that can slow down the progression and improve quality of life for your animal.
