Treating Cushing’s Disease in Dogs | Life-changing story of Gau the pomeranian

Gấu is a 5-year-old pomeranian friend of ADI. We recently saw Gau at ADI presenting with signs of Cushing. It’s important to start from first principles and follow evidence based medicine when diagnosing Cushing’s and our team confirmed this with a standard ACTH-stimulation test.

What’s Cushing’s Disease?
Cushing’s disease, or hyperadrenocorticism, occurs when a pet’s adrenal glands produce too many hormones usually triggered by a benign pituitary tumor. This can lead to symptoms like increased appetite, thirst, and a lackluster coat.
“Identifying the cause of Cushing’s disease is important because each type is treated differently and each has a different prognosis.”
Our Approach: Tailored and Compassionate
Treating Gau required a delicate balance of medication and careful monitoring. We prescribed medication to manage his hormone levels and monitored his progress closely.
The Outcome
Gau’s condition improved significantly under our care! His energy levels bounced back, and his coat has regrown, lustrous and full, a clear sign of his improved health.
