As these dogs grow older, they may become confused, wander aimlessly, or stare blankly. Disrupted sleep patterns are also typical. Such symptoms tend to worsen and can lead to disorientation, barking or whining at night, and sometimes even incontinence. There are various products available to support these dogs and slow down the aging process, such as Hill’s b/d Ageing & Alertness – Prescription Diet – Canine, or Cholodin.
