Cushing disease (hyperadrenocorticism) may be divided into two broad categories. Pituitary-dependent hyperadrenocorticism, arises from an enlargement of the pituitary gland, resulting in excessive ACTH production. The other category is adrenal-dependent disease and is associated with tumors on the adrenal gland.
Three treatment options are available for Cushing disease in dogs. Medical, surgical, and radiation therapy have all been used with varying degrees of success and your veterinarian will go through what is best for you pet.
Here at NutriPetPak we believe nutritional support is at the forefront in making your pet feel better during the course of this disease and to support the adrenals and the organs that work with them and the rest of the hormonal system.
