Symptoms of Cushing's Disease

Like humans, all pets are exposed to a fair amount of daily stress, which eventually taxes the system. Excited “good” stress, such as a trip to the beach or reacting to guests in the house, has the same cumulative effect on the body as “bad” stress, such as going to the vet or kennel, and can lead to a buildup of cortisol.

In a healthy pet, the pituitary gland produces adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), stimulating the adrenal glands to secrete glutocorticoid, or cortisol hormones, into the bloodstream.

Cortisol is necessary for the body's health and functioning, affecting your pet's metabolism, nervous, immune, and cardiovascular systems, as well as kidneys. When the pituitary gland or adrenal gland malfunctions and excess glucocorticoid is secreted, your pet develops Cushing’s disease. As a result, your pet may begin to experience increased appetite -- the most noticeable effect of long-term exposure to cortisol -- and frequently beg, become possessive of food, or get into the garbage.

You may also notice increased thirst and water consumption in your pet, leading to more frequent urination and indoor accidents. Hair loss and thinning, especially around the elbows, flank, and abdomen may also occur after extended cortisol exposure. 

Function and definition of the adrenal glands

The adrenal glands are two, small bean-shaped structures situated above each of your pet’s two kidneys. They consist of two separate regions: an inner adrenal medulla surrounded by an outer adrenal cortex. 

The adrenal glands release a wide variety of hormones. The medulla is responsible for producing epinephrine and norepinephrine (adrenaline).  These hormones control the body’s reaction to stress and affect blood pressure and heart rate. The adrenal cortex produces hormones such as cortisone and aldosterone which are necessary for balancing fluid and electrolytes (salt) in the body as well as regulating the use of dietary protein, fats and carbohydrates and controlling inflammation.

What are the symptoms of Cushing’s Disease?

High levels of corticosteroids in the body can cause a number of health problems in pets including:

  • Increased thirst/drinking and urination
  • Increased appetite
  • Panting
  • High blood pressure
  • Loss of hair
  • Calcified lumps in the skin
  • Thinning skin and susceptibility to infections

Over time, if not well-controlled, Cushing’s can increase your pet's risk of other conditions including diabetes, weakening of the heart and nervous system disease.

What are the main causes of Cushing’s in pets?

There are a couple of possible causes for Cushing's in pets. The first is that your pet may be taking in excess corticosteroids in the form of medications such as Prednisone. If your pet is not taking a drug like Prednisone and has been diagnosed with Cushing’s, it is probably due to a tumor (usually benign) on either of the adrenal glands themselves or on the pituitary gland. 

What is the conventional treatment?

If your pet’s problems are caused by prescription Prednisone, the answer is of course to wean your pet off this medication slowly and under the supervision of a veterinarian. Cushex drops can help facilitate the process of normalizing adrenal function and corticosteroid levels in the body as your pet slowly stops taking the Prednisnone. Cushing’s caused by other factors, such as adrenal or pituitary gland tumors needs a more complex, holistic approach.  In the case of an adrenal gland tumor, the tumor can be removed through surgery but this procedure carries a high risk.  Pituitary tumors are not usually removed but rather treated through symptomatic therapy with drugs that kill part of the adrenal gland in order to normalize corticosteroid production. This treatment needs to be very carefully monitored as killing too much of the adrenals is easy to do and can cause serious health problems including the subsequent UNDER-production of corticosteroids.

How can herbal remedies and dietary supplements help?

Though natural remedies will not cure Cushing’s, many herbs can safely and effectively support your pet’s general health and help to reduce the symptoms of Cushing’s disease.

A holistic approach to your pet’s condition is the best approach: see below for dietary measures that can help your pet’s general health.

What are Cushex Drops?

PetAlive Cushex Drops contain all herbal ngredients specially selected to treat Cushing’s in pets. Each ingredient of this natural remedy has a specific role to play in normalizing adrenal function, balancing corticosteroid levels or reducing the troublesome symptoms of this condition.

Cushex Drops are easy to administer and the dosage can be adjusted to suit pets of all sizes.


 

 

What are the all herbal ingredients?

Cushex Drops-S is a 100% herbal formula and contains the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage: Dandelion, Burdock, Astragalus.

  • Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is well-known as a supporter for the liver, kidneys and adrenal glands and will help to support normal adrenal functioning. Dandelion also contains vitamins and minerals important for hair health and growth and has been studied for its antioxidant activities (Hu, C. and Kitts, D. D. “Antioxidant, prooxidant, and cytotoxic activities of solvent-fractionated dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) flower extracts in vitro.” J Agric.Food Chem. 1-1-2003; 51(1):301-310).
  • Burdock (Arctium lappa) is a cleansing and eliminating herb and is excellent at cleansing the tissues and supporting waste removal from the body (Shimizu, J., Yamada, N., Nakamura, K., Takita, T., and Innami, S. “Effects of different types of dietary fiber preparations isolated from bamboo shoots, edible burdock, apple and corn on fecal steroid profiles of rats.” J Nutr Sci Vitaminol. (Tokyo) 1996; 42(6):527-539). Burdock is also traditionally recommended for maintaining blood sugar levels already within the normal range and has been investigated for its ability to support health.
  • Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceous) is an herb which has been used for many centuries as a revitalizing herb. Astragalus is known as an adaptogen and helps to support balance in the adrenal glands. It helps to maintain healthy adrenal cortical function and is important for supporting blood pressure and blood sugar levels already within the normal range. Recent research confirms the positive effect of Astragalus in supporting the immune system.
  • Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) has a long history of being used to help with cortisol levels and for its liver protecting and immune balancing effects.
  • Eleuthero root (Eleutherococcus) is commonly just referred to as ‘Eleuthero’ and is highly respected and prized as a natural energy tonic to support energy, circulation, and natural vitality and to act as an overall systemic supporter. Eleuthero is comparable to Ginseng and is an excellent supportive tonic for healthy adrenal hormones. It has also been shown to have anti-stress, anti-inflammatory and liver protecting properties.

How have Cushex Drops helped others?

Thanks to Cushex Drops-S this supplement works wonderfully for our 12 year old chocolate lab. We tired other products before with not the results we were expecting. We switched products to Cushex Drops and what an AWESOME difference this product has made, my wife and I are very pleased and looking to refill our order soon. Thank you, thank you Pet-Alive. Tom & Phyllis

"Thank you for such a wonderful remedy.  My poor dog’s health was in a state due to Cushing’s and this natural product really helped.  I am so pleased that her coat is looking healthier and her hair has stopped falling out everywhere. I’m also relieved that we have managed to avoid surgery as Kendra is an old dog now and I would hate to put her life at risk." - Carryn J.

"My 14 year old maltese was diagnosed with Cushing’s after months of urinating in the house for no apparent reason- something he never used to do. We were not keen on the vet’s recommendations for treatment as they all sounded terribly harsh and downright dangerous so we tried your Cushex drops and are very impressed.  It is wonderful to find something all-natural and safe that actually works! I have told my vet about your product and how well it works- he can see the difference in our Maltese as well and says that he is going to recommend your product as an alternative treatment to Cushing’s in his practice!" - Marlene
