Addison’s disease, also called hypoadrenocorticism, is an uncommon disease of dogs and occurs very rarely in cats. The cause is unknown in some cases; in others it appears as an immune-mediated disorder in which the pet’s body makes antibodies that destroy its own adrenal glands. You can read more about it here on our blog.
Chronic use of corticosteroids (such as prednisone) can cause secondary Addison’s disease if the corticosteroid administration is suddenly stopped rather than gradually withdrawn from the pet.
The Addisons Support Custom Blend can be used in conjunction with conventional therapies. It should be noted that is currently no cure for Addison’s, and treatment will be lifelong for your pet.
As with any condition, the most healthful natural diet will improve the pet’s overall health.

If you are feeding herbs for healing or calming purposes then it is most effective to feed the herbs on a daily basis throughout one full blood cycle, which is 3 months (12 weeks). The condition should be vastly improved over this time to the point where further supplementation should no longer be necessary.
Please ensure that you are familiar with our medical disclaimer. We provide these herbal solutions for your convenience only, and because we know they work for the conditions that these solutions have been formulated for.
Herbs as a rule should not be fed to pregnant animals, as many of them have uterine or hormonal stimulant properties. Before feeding a herb to a broodmare or foal, please consult with a vet or holistic animal practitioner to substantiate safety of a specific herb.
