The pet is unable to recognize familiar objects, other pets and people. When pets are unable to recognize people or objects, it is typically a symptom of an underlying health issue. Perhaps the most common reason that dogs and cats may be unable to recognize people or objects is senility. This is a condition that occurs in senior pets as they age. However, there are other reasons that dogs and cats may be unable to recognize people or objects including partial or complete blindness, various brain disorders and brain tumors. See also Dementia.
How to Recognize

Causes of Unable To Recognize People Objects
The most common cause of the inability to recognize people and objects is old age. Senility, dementia, brain tumors, and blindness are possibly underlying causes.
When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
