Course Description

This increasingly common condition is caused by an overactive adrenal gland that’s producing too much adrenal hormone. Cushing’s is occasionally caused by a tumor in the adrenal gland – but a more common cause is a benign pituitary tumor, which signals the adrenals to produce more hormone than needed.

Things to Learn

Learn how an integrative treatment plan – including alternative therapies such as diet, herbs and acupuncture – can effectively treat Cushing’s disease in many dogs.
