My Belle has been taking this product for approximately 4 years now. It has definitely extended her life. I am very happy we found this for her.

Half the price of my vet...but I was promised free shipping which I didn't get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vytas4458 Works well!
I use this for my aging dogs when they start to get a little disoriented or show the signs of mental slowing. The medication takes about a week to see the effect but it works great! If you have an older dog that forgets to go outside to urinate or can't remember where the dog door is or stands around looking lost at times, it may be a sign that they need some medication help. I have been using this medication since 2002 when my first old girl started to lose it after she lost her sight, it brought her back to her old self and helped her cope with her disability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by breeze59 Really improved quality of life for my old dog.
We used selegiline once for about 6 months when Hunter was 12 - he was having trouble adjusting after the loss of his best dog pal with anxiety and fear of going outdoors or even open spaces indoors. This worked beautifully and he weaned off fine. We started to give it to him again at age 16 for nighttime restlessness and anxiety and it has again worked beautifully for him, he sleeps through the night and has no problem with anxiety. Still seems to have some mild confusion. He will turn 17 in 2 weeks (!) and quality of life is still pretty good. It is quite expensive, but prices on petcarerx make it doable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vic14k Selegiline Gave my Dog his Personality Back
My 13 year old Lab has dementia. This drug is a miracle. He acts like himself. Before Selegiline, he wasn't eating, forgot how to navigate stairs, barked at walls and furniture, and was generally confused. He's had zero bad side effects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gertee Helping my 15 yr old Wire Fox Terrier
Started the drug on my vet' recommendation due to my little dog's declining canine cognitive dysfunction. She has been on it a month + now and it has helped. Much less whimpering, waking up in middle of night wandering around . We also started her on special diet. The 2 combined are helping. She is not like her younger self, but less anxious, less stressed and more oriented to time, place.
I highly recommend you try this for your elderly dog with declining cognition. Depending on each dog's condition, the improvements vary for each dog.
For us it has helped, and our dog seems better, but she is not cured of her CDS; others have reported dramatic results. Results are not the same for every dog.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Phee It seems to help
My girl (we think she's a Tibetan Terrier) is getting up in years and suffers from some chronic illnesses as well. We started selegiline a couple of months ago. At first I thought maybe, just maybe it was helping with her cognitive functions. Now I'm sure it is. She's not what she once was but at least she's not sleeping 24/7. She still gets herself into corners and stands there but I think it may be at least partly a vision issue. She's more responsive than she had been and seems to be enjoying her life, quiet as it is, more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RussellMom This product helps my dog tremendously.
My dog is an 18 year old Jack RussellTerrier and she has canine cognitive dysfunction. Selegeline helps ease her "alzheimers" symptoms and improves her quality of life. I give her 10 mg capsules; I open the capsules and pour the powder right over her canned food.
