If your dog has been diagnosed with Cushing’s disease, the Cushing’s Kit 1 may be beneficial in supporting your canine's  overall health and well-being.  The combination of NHV Supraglan and NHV Milk Thistle are vet approved and formulated to work synergistically in supporting the pituitary  and adrenal gland, liver, and kidney function. 

Canine Cushing’s is caused by the overproduction of the hormone cortisol by the adrenal gland.  Dogs with this disease  have a suppressed immune system caused by the excessive production of cortisol in the body.  Canines  are likely to get bladder infections due to this.

Supraglan is a natural herbal supplement that will help balance the adrenal gland, improve the immune system and fight infections.  It may also aid in reducing thirst, excessive urination, appetite, help overall skin condition, and support the kidneys 

Milk Thistle helps support the liver and kidney function.  Test results for dogs that have Cushing’s indicated elevated liver enzyme levels and enlargement of the liver. Combing these products will help you dog live a healthy life. 

To be taken twice daily. Determine your pet’s weight and then use the easy chart below to determine the correct dose. This is the minimum dosage.

This product is very, very helpful for cushings in my little sweetie-pie, dachsi-poo, Korona. I tried two different manufacturers for help with the cushings symptoms and this NHV kit for cushings with the Supraglan and Milk Thistle definitely shows much better improvement! It took about 2 weeks to see the real effects take place and we've had to adjust her dosage up a little bit, but now we have our baby back! She's improved so much in all areas with the exception of a little "accident" here and there, which is extremely frustrating, but I am hopeful that we can put a stop to the accidents in the house at some point. It's only been a couple of months, but she's so much better than she has been in the last year to year and a half! We are very happy and very appreciative of this product because we didn't want to put her on harsh vet prescriptions that have a long list of side-effects. We want to only treat our pets with natural remedies that work... THIS WORKS!!!!!!!! Thank You! <3 *

My 9 year old Sheltie (28 lbs) was taking .75 of Milk Thistle and Supraglan 2 x day. I'm going to increase the dosage to 1.0 - 2x per day after speaking with customer service. I know for sure she is not getting worse since starting these products a month ago (and we were getting desperate at the time). Now she is manageable, no more accidents, and occasionally she has water left in her bowl. With an increase I hope to see even more positive changes. Jade, in customer service really showed an interest in her recovery process and I appreciate that very much. Its hard to find that level of care over the phone. *

My first time trying this product for my 14 yr old lhasa apso who a year ago was diagnosed with Cushings disease. I decided to put him on natural medicine and it worked. Besides his condition, he is blind and deaf but he has well manage his symptoms with this treatment. I highly recommend. I know he soon will be leaving me do to his age, I always tried to give him the best and now more than ever I want him to have the best quality of life during his last days, months and who knows maybe 1-2 more yrs. *

My 10 year old Sheltie has been on Surpraglan and Milk Thistle for a month now to treat recently diagnosed Cushing's. Very pleased with the progress. Her coat is filling in, drinking less water and she isn't panting constantly. So glad to have discovered these products to make her life better. She has a lot more energy as well. *

My 15 year old Shih Tzu, Angel, was diagnosed with Cushing's Disease last August. She was started on [**pharmaceutical name removed] for this condition immediately, and I also ordered the Cushing's Kit from NHV, and started her on that. She has been doing very well on the supplements, and I actually took her off of the [**pharmaceutical name removed] about a month ago, and she is still doing good. None of her Cushing's symptoms have returned, so I'm very optimistic. *

This has helped my dog so far by. Completely stopped urinating in house and pooping in house within 2 weeks of starting the Cushing s disease program and I took all grains and wheat out of his diet plus a probiotics powder to his food skin has improved greatly. *
