Understanding the condition
Addison's disease, which is more commonly seen in female dogs, doesn’t usually present until the dog is about 5.5 years old. The disease is genetic and progresses as the dog’s adrenal glands atrophy.
Dog owners don’t normally detect something is wrong with the pet until the dog begins to display severe lethargy. It’s at this time the dog could go through an Addisonian crisis, which is a dangerous condition that, left untreated, often leads to death.
What Causes Addison’s Disease?
The disease is thought to be an autoimmune disorder. An autoimmune disorder occurs when the body’s immune system does not recognize “self.” Recognizing “self” is the main trigger that stops an immune cell from attacking the body’s own cells. When this trigger is genetically altered, the immune system hunts down and kills its own organ cells. In the case of Addison’s disease, the dog’s immune system destroys the adrenal glands with military precision.
What is the Function of Adrenal Glands?
Adrenal glands are located next to the kidneys and produce hormones including cortisol and aldosterone. The shape and color of pink jelly beans, these glands are necessary for body regulation including the replenishment of electrolytes when levels are low.
Electrolytes are ions such as potassium and sodium that regulate water intake and heart function. When these electrolytes are unbalanced, it leads to dehydration, heart irregularity and even renal failure. Severely unbalanced electrolyte levels are seen when a dog develops Addison’s disease and goes through an Addisonian crisis.
What are the Symptoms of Addison’s Disease?
Because a dog can’t articulate that there is something wrong, dog owners usually sense the disease beginning with extreme lethargy.
The dog won’t eat and is unable to drink water without vomiting.
Diarrhea and weakness are also seen
As the disease progresses, the dog becomes more weak and dehydrated
Potassium levels skyrocket and sodium levels are severely reduced
The heart beat becomes erratic and kidneys lose function
An Addisonian crisis is a medical emergency. What's important here is to get the dog to a medical facility immediately, where the illness can be properly treated.
Dog’s Living with Addison’s Disease
Fortunately, after the disease is diagnosed and treated, the dog can live a long, normal life with continuing medication. Mind you, we're talking lifelong treatment that involves steroid medication and continuous monitoring. Your veterinarian will typically begin treatment with a corticosteroid, changing the dose as electrolyte levels normalize.
