Addison’s Disease (Hypoadrenocorticism)

What is Addison’s Disease?

In animals with Addison’s disease there is a deficiency or reduction of the corticosteroid hormones released from the adrenal glands. We usually don’t know the direct cause of the hormone deficiency, but fortunately the disease can be managed with the administration of corticosteroid hormones even if the cause of it is unknown.veterinary-85925_960_720
