Can this replace veterinary prescribed treatment for Cushing's in dogs?
We recommend that every dog or cat with Cushing's disease proceed with veterinary treatment if possible at the early stages after diagnosis. This can help to bring the body back into balance. The supplements are safe to use along with conventional veterinary medications. Over time, it may be possible to slowly wean down the dose or completely discontinue the veterinary prescribed medications, though every case is different.
I think my dog has Cushing's. I'm not sure. He is exhibiting symptoms. Can I use this?
These supplements are safe to use even for dogs and cats without Cushing's disease. If you suspect your pet may have Cushing's, it is important that you see your veterinarian.
One of your pet experts said that Cushing's disease is a progressive disease for dogs and that I should check back for dosage? Why?
Many pets do very well on our supplements, however, with progressive conditions, you may notice the efficacy to slightly lessen over time. Occasionally, we will recommend a dose increase as your pet's condition progresses. In general, all of our supplements are safe to at least double in dose.
Why is the Milk Thistle in this kit?
The liver is an organ that can be greatly affected by Cushing's disease in cats and dogs. Therefore supporting the liver in a Cushing's patient is extremely important. Milk Thistle offers excellent liver support. Our pet experts have also found the combination of Supraglan and Milk Thistle together to be the most effective for Cushing’s disease.
