We're having our dog tested for this next week - anyone had experience of this?
Oops I meant to put this in Health & Nutrition - how do I move it?!
You'd have to get a mod to move it. Don't worry just repost in health
Thanks - will do that!
Not sure how to move it sorry...
I didn't know dogs could get addisons? my younger brother has it, he was diognosed early lasted year. He was very lethargic and would pass out for no reason... and you can slip into a coma from it. My brother is on constant medication... and since hes been taking it, hes been absolutly fine. He has to take it at specific times everyday, otherwise he can get ill. It is something to do with the glands in your body, if you have addisons one of the glands is completly destroyed, and the otherone usually only works 10% or less. The other gland then starts to attack others in the body, which can cause diabetes. I know it all sounds very daunting but since hes been on his medication hes leading a normal day to day life, and it also might be completly different for dogs
Hope this helps abit
