Cushing’s syndrome has a widespread, negative impact on your dog’s quality of life and if left untreated your dog runs a greater risk of serious conditions such as:
- diabetes mellitus
- high blood pressure
- pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)
- infections of the kidneys and urinary tract
- pulmonary thromboembolism (blood clots in the lung)
Management of Cushing’s syndrome
Although Cushing’s syndrome cannot be cured it can be successfully managed using medication allowing your dog’s health to be restored. Vetoryl® is the only licensed treatment for use in dogs. Vetoryl contains the active ingredient trilostane, a drug which reduces the production of cortisol by the adrenal glands.
