It is accepted that, as in humans, a dog's brain function tends to decline with age. Senility may now be treatable !
Dr. Hoskins, a board certified internal medicine specialist (Professor Emeritus at the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine) has found that,
"The use of the new medication, ANIPRYL has been shown to bring about significant improvement in dogs that have many of the behavioral changes associated with aging."
ANIPRYL costs $2 - 3 / day initially. After the first 3 months, if there is a favorable response, the dosage may be able to be reduced for long-term maintenance.
Recapturing the "good times" between you and your senior dog is now an exciting possibility thanks to Anipryl. Cats are still being studied.
