Connecticut Canine Rehab Practitioner, Dr. Debbie Torraca Contributes to Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Book

Buchanan, VA, July 23, 2022 — ( — Dr. Debbie Torraca of Wizard of Paws, located at 155 Westchster Road, Colchester, Connecticut is keenly aware of the need for pet parents to learn more about cognitive problems in their dogs.

As a contributor to F. Barish-Stern’s book, “Shamrock’s Story, From Hurricane Katrina to Doggy Dementia & Alzheimer’s”, published by Golden Quill Press, Dr. Torraca said she strongly believes that certain races and genetics cause dogs are wired to be more anxious. “Knowing the genetics of your dog’s breed can help you be aware of triggers that could indicate CCDS.” Therefore, even though a dog like Shamrock was not excitable, because her breed predisposed her to be more anxious, she was a candidate for cognitive problems.

Barish-Stern set out to write this book after experiencing this disease with her dog, Shamrock, and explains in the book what she learned, to help pet parents better understand their dogs’ cognitive issues. .

“Dr. Torraca is proud to contribute to this informative book focused on helping our wonderful senior dogs.”

Dr. Torraca is the owner of Wizard of Paws Physical Rehabilitation for Animals, LLC. She and her team enjoy helping small animals of all ages.
