Cushing’s Disease

Cushing’s Disease also known as hyperadrenocorticism.

When you break the word down ‘Hyper‘ means too much, ‘adreno‘ refers to the adrenal glands, and ‘corticism‘ refers to a syndrome involving the hormone cortisol. Loosely translated, Hyperadrenocorticism means too much cortisol released by the adrenal glands.

What this means is your dog’s body is now undergoing a constant stress – with it leads to a chronic overexcretion of cortisol. Too much cortisol in the body can lead to many other stress-induced health problems such as

  • Elevated blood sugar, which can lead to diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease
  • Being in a constant stage of hunger from burning extra glucose
  • Decreased muscle and bone mass
  • Increased risk of infection

Keeping your dog healthy and hydrated are two steps you can take to help relieve the symptoms associated with this disease. Cushing’s Disease is a hormonal sickness and is extremely difficult to heal since hormones are so frequently imbalanced. Moderating your dog’s body by keeping it in a natural and less inflamed state will allow them to process the medication they may have been prescribed. This will also allow their bodies to begin self-healing.

Additional things you can do to help your dog include;

Feeding a biologically appropriate diet – Raw Food; By doing this your dog will become acidic which is their healthiest and most natural state and will help alleviate the possibility of further sickness.

Feeding a Probiotic; Adding a probiotic into your dog’s raw diet will help improve your dog’s gut flora which will allow the body to optimally absorb nutrients.

Offering your dog an anxiety relief; Even if your dog is not normally anxious the body is currently in a state of severe stress and discomfort. Keeping your dog mentally calm will help the body’s healing process.
