Are Pets of the Elderly in Danger?
This emaciated dog named “Mojo” died after being unintentionally forgotten and starved by his elderly owner who suffered from dementia. Mojo was a tiny chihuahua who was found locked in a room where his owner lived. He was rescued, but it wasn’t soon enough. He was unintentionally neglected to the point where he lost his life because of it. Starved. Cold. Alone. Forgotten about because of a terrible disease. The chihuahua’s owner suffered from dementia but no one noticed just how bad it was. By the time someone became aware of it, Mojo had paid the price.
