Ms. Jones, based on my exam, I think Buddy is suffering from Cushing's syndrome, an endocrine condition also known as hyperadrenocorticism (HAC). These clinical signs we're seeing, his frequent urination, pot belly, excessive water intake, lethargy, etc., are likely due to an excess of cortisol production. Cortisol is the body's natural stress-fighting and anti-inflammatory hormone. State the Solution Dechra offers a product called VETORYL ® Capsules It's the only FDA veterinary-approved treatment for hyperadrenocorticism, both pituitary- dependent (PDH) and adrenal-dependent (ADH). It contains the active ingredient trilostane, which blocks the excessive production of cortisol. Make Your Recommendation Ms. Jones, I believe giving Buddy VETORYL ® Capsules may greatly reduce the clinical signs associated with Cushing's syndrome and help improve Buddy's quality of life.
