Rated 5 out of 5 A NEW LEASH ON LIFE!
My story is almost exactly the same as Samuel's including my dog's vets being unfamiliar with the disorder and the medication. I did the research and provided them with the information. My vets told me my dog had all sorts of problems and needed to be put to sleep. They were wrong! This medication has given me my old friend back! He is doing GREAT on this medication for the past 6 months! His symptoms and behaviors including: Confusion, whining, pacing, walking in circles, not responding to his name, agitation, disturbances in sleep/wake cycle, becoming "lost" in familar places in residence, staring at walls, etc etc etc have all either decreased drastically or ceased all together. He is doing GREAT on this medication which is the generic version of Anipryl! *Consistency* in giving your pet this medication is very important! Also some foods and medications should be avoided if your pet is on this medication. Takes about 2-6 weeks for max effect to occur. My dog was already 1000% percent improved in less than 3 days! Remember, your vet might not be familiar with this disorder or this medication! Do the research and show them! I can't tell you how close my dog came to being put to sleep simply because his vets were uninformed and in error. I have my old friend back, and we have more time together now thanks to this medication!

Rated 5 out of 5 Back from the brink - A Canine Alzheimer's Disease Story
Be advised - most family veterinarians are not familiar with treating and diagnosing canine aging illnesses that affect a dog's cognitive functions. So, as owner- you sometines need to do the research for your vet...
Originially tested on animals, Selegiline the generic for the drug Anipryl is an absolute miracle remedy for Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (the canine equivalent of Alzheimer's Disease).
Our dog lucy has been taking the medication for over a year, it has literally brought her back from dementia.
Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome has the following symptoms in dogs:
A dog does not recognize it's own name when called; &
A dog forgets to do things they are accustomed to like walking down stairs, jumping up on a familiar couch or bed; &
A dog appears confused and agitated, staring at walls, whimpering at the inability to maneuver throw familiar terrain.
