Episode 5: Pet Alzheimer’s and Shedding


John and Michael discuss the symptoms of Senior Cognitive Dysfunction, also called Dog Alzheimer’s or Cat Senility, and how supplements, antioxidants or medications may help, as well as how your pet’s brain is protected from their own blood. We also discuss why some pets shed, and others need haircuts, and the bad news about preventing shedding.

Here’s a link about the antioxidant that was mentioned, Astaxanthin, which otherwise would be impossible to spell.

Also, Dr. Rumore did a brief terrible rendition of the National Geographic them song- here’s the real deal.

Lastly, here’s a more information about the blood brain barrier that was mentioned. It’s a little technical but has some cool animation.
