: need info on occurrence of Addison's disease in dogs, treatment of, symptoms of the disease, manisfestation of. Thanks.
Addison's disease is rare in dogs, but my Basset has it. She takes florinef daily and pred as well. She also has a special diet and requires blood test ever 3-4 months. It can be costly.
My dog was lethargic, suffered muscle weakness, would not eat or drink, and suffered hair loss.
If you think your pet has it you need to get a cortisol test from your local veterinarian.
