Cushing’s Disease in pets – signs & symptoms
Cushing’s disease is also known as hyperadrenocorticism and is characterised by the over-production of hormones from the adrenal glands. The extra high levels of these hormones in your pet’s body can cause varied and serious symptoms, including:
- Increased thirst/drinking and urination
- Increased appetite
- 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.
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 tumour (usually benign) on either of the adrenal glands themselves or on the pituitary gland, which is located at the base of the skull.
The natural way
Many herbs and natural remedies can safely and effectively support your pet’s general health and help to reduce the symptoms of Cushing’s disease. In addition, animals who are using Prednisone will need to be weaned off this medicine and an alternative will have to be found. There are natural remedies with a range of anti-inflammatory effects, depending on need (e.g. joint or skin problems) that can be very effective – without having a negative effect on the adrenal glands.
A holistic approach to your pet’s condition is the best approach: feed a well-balanced natural diet and ensure that your pet has plenty of regular exercise, while supplementing with natural medicines for optimal health. .

How have Cushex Drops helped others?
“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
