hich causes high levels of cortisone to appear in the blood. It is also called hypercortisolism, when referring to the human condition, and, as mentioned earlier, hyperadrenocorticism, when referring to the canine condition (CCS), and these two terms can be used interchangeably. The condition was named after an American surgeon and endocrinologist named Harvey Cushing (1869-1939) who first discovered the disease in 1932.
Now, what is Cortisone? Cortisone, a steroid which is naturally-produced by the adrenal glands, is one of the essential hormones needed by the body. It functions primarily in carbohydrate metabolism. Now being manufactured artificially, Cortisone has been found useful as a drug to cure a number of ailments (Wikipedia,1). Although cortisone may have positive effects on the body like curing certain illnesses, having more than the recommended amount of cortisone can also be harmful. Cortisone is said to stop inflammation and therefore it also stops the healing process, that is, if normal amounts are exceeded. It is said that over-production of cortisone, may cause systemic illness – in this particular case, for canines. Some symptoms of CCS in dogs are: excessive drinking and urination, increased appetite, having a “pot belly” or abdominal distention, and loss of hair on the trunk.
So when you see your pet panting and asking for more water, or always getting hungry and begging for food, do not disregard these tell-tale signs. Most dogs with CCS cannot be satisfied with the amount of fluids or food they take. They always get hungry and thirsty, and because their body cannot absorb what they take in, they usually urinate and defecate a lot. In the advanced stage, the dog usually gains weight, has a distended stomach, shows muscle weakness, and is lethargic. It is therefore imperative that a pet owner should know if his / her pet is not acting normally so that the disease may be treated at its early stage.
