Addison's disease can develop in your dog or cat when the adrenal glands (bark) no longer function properly. The diagnosis is made with a blood test. The test result then shows low sodium, high potassium and elevated kidney values.
In practice, it is more common in dogs than in cats or other pets.
Symptoms are seen when 90% of adrenal function is lost. Healing is not possible. Permanent treatment is necessary. Addison's disease is manageable. The symptoms develop over time. The speed of developing symptoms can take months to years.
The most characteristic symptoms of Addison's disease may include:
Addison's Disease Treatment
Addison's disease is treatable. Your vet has medication for this. Your pet must be set up for this. If too much or too little medication is given, symptoms (side effects) that resemble the symptoms of Addison's disease can develop.
With a timely diagnosis of Addison's disease, the Chinese herbal formula Yan Shen can significantly slow down and even stop the disease. Dogs and cats with Addison's disease can grow old healthily if the formula is administered daily in the correct dosage. Yan Shen works directly on the adrenal glands and is therefore very effective against Addison. Yan Shen stimulates the part of the adrenal glands that is still functioning. This increases the adrenal capacity. It takes about 2 - 3 weeks for the adrenal capacity to increase again.
