Dr. Jeff, you had recommendrf Lions Mane for Katie. (Amyloban 3399) Do you still recommend?
Dr. Feinman, yes Dr. Bredesen has amazing insights to offer and he and Dr. Newport have given me wonderful interviews for the book that translates to helpful information for our dogs.Dr. Bredesen is having amazing results for people with Alzheimer's by removing dietary obstacles, optimizing lifestyle and cellular energy.
This is just one of the wonderful One Health-One Medicine connections that are being made!
I'm not sure about the dog lover, but he is so enthusiastic about using techniques to halt, stop and even reverse Alzheimer's that I had to speak with him about his work. Here is something he said you may find interesting, "Wow, how wonderful Francine!
Is Dr. Bredesen a dog lover? As you know, I love talking with anyone who wants to chat about the vitality and balance that helps both pets and people to be their best!
It is so good to see so many products related to helping dogs with CCDS. Hopefully awareness of this disease in dogs will become more and more and products to halt, stop and prevent will become the norm...I hope my book can also help in that vain!
“Being able to diagnose and quantify CCDS in a way that is clinically safe and relevant is a good first step toward being able to work with dogs as a model for Alzheimer’s disease in humans. Many of the current models of Alzheimer’s disease — in rodents, for example — are good for understanding physiological changes, but not for testing treatments.”

We used scent for our Springer who had vision issues. Any consistent scent to set pathways helped her move about easier, which may help with confidence. I am a big fan of chiropractic in older dogs to keep all the nerves communicating as well as possible. Engagement contributes to happiness, so finding a way to play or engage him-probably through scent, maybe tracking some high vale treats may help him become more engaged. Hope this helpsI have a 14 1/2 year old ESS. He has PRA and he can no longer hear. He has had some personality changes over the last year which seems to me to be caused by not being able to see. I do not think he is demented. I notice he has less interest in other humans. As long as he knows where I am he is happy. Sometimes he can get stuck places because he can not see but he can get himself unstuck, mostly. He no longer barks. He has a lot of vitality and a strong will. He seems happy. I hope he lives until he is 16. I will update you if I see any additional changes.
