Does anyone have any experience with Addison's? My four legged 75 pound daughter Misty who will be 3 on Sept 15th was diagnosis 11 months ago with Addison's. She is currently taking Fludrocortisone 0.1mg 6 tablets and Prednisone 5mg 1 tablet everyday. She has been going for bloodwork every 5-6 weeks to monitor her levels and they haven't changed even though she is taking all these meds. Her Vet has raised her meds gradual over the last 11 months with no changes in her bloodwork. She drinks excessive amounts of H20 so much so I had her tested for diabetes, and she pants excessively. Her energy level is also highly reduced. Therefore, we take several short walks everyday. Does anyone have any information. Someone suggested salt in her food? However, I was not given an exact amount. Therefore, I didn't think it would be a good idea to guesstimate. Thank You for any Help Weimaraner Mother
Hello my name is Olivia and I have had a Coton De Tulear named Chloe for 9 years now. She has had Addison's disease since she was around 3 years old. She to also drinks large amounts of water, but our vet says this is normal. She also pants and shakes violently whenever we take her in a car. I think she knows we're going to a vet or to get her hair cut. If your dog is taking proper meds, I am sure she will be fine for many years to come. My dog gets a monthly shot and then takes prednisone twice a day orally. If you have any other questions, feel free to post back :).
