2-2-13: Cushing's Disease


Cushing’s disease (hyperadrenocorticism) arises from an overproduction of glucocorticoid hormones by one or both adrenal glands. It is a common disease in middle aged or older pets that causes increased thirst, urination, and appetite. Physical changes to the pet can include obesity, muscle weakness, and changes in skin and coat. Cushing’s disease may be difficult to diagnose because test results may not be clear-cut and multiple tests or repeated testing may be needed to achieve a diagnosis. Veterinary internal medicine specialist Dr. Danielle Bayliss from Memphis Veterinary Specialists in Memphis, Tennessee joined us on Saturday’s show and gave us information about this common disease and answered listener questions.
