Canine Hypoadrenocorticism, or Addison’s disease, is a condition in which a dog’s adrenal glands are not working as well as they should. Dogs with the disease have lower than normal levels of glucocorticoids (cortisol) and mineralocorticoids (aldosterone). These hormones are vital to keep a dog’s body functioning normally.
Dechra now offers a replacement therapy product for mineralocorticoid deficiency in dogs with primary hypoadrenocorticism (Addison’s disease): ZYCORTAL Suspension (desoxycorticosterone pivalate injectable suspension).
Addison's disease cannot typically be cured with medication, but it can be successfully managed. Proper diagnosis, monitoring, and accurate treatment adjustments are essential elements in successfully managing Addison's disease.
