Addison's disease, also known as hypoadrenocorticism, is a medical condition that affects both humans and pets. In this article, we'll delve into what Addison's disease is and explore the benefits of using our specially crafted pet botanicals to address this condition in our beloved animal companions.

Understanding Addison's Disease in Pets: Addison's disease occurs when the adrenal glands fail to produce sufficient hormones, such as cortisol and aldosterone. In pets, this can lead to a range of symptoms, including

  • lethargy
  • weakness
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • weight loss.
The condition can be challenging to diagnose due to its nonspecific symptoms, making it crucial for pet owners to be vigilant and seek veterinary attention if they notice any unusual signs.

Turmeric:

Benefits: Turmeric is renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties. In the context of Addison's disease, it can help reduce inflammation, providing relief for pets experiencing discomfort.

Astragalus:

Benefits: Astragalus is an adaptogenic herb known for its immune-modulating effects. It can support the immune system, crucial for pets with Addison's disease, as they may be more susceptible to infections.

Licorice:

Benefits: Licorice has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it valuable for addressing symptoms associated with adrenal insufficiency. It may also aid in maintaining electrolyte balance.

Rosehip:

Benefits: Rosehip is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, promoting overall health. It can contribute to boosting the immune system and supporting the body's natural healing processes.

Benefits: Withania is an adaptogenic herb that may help reduce stress and support adrenal function. It can be beneficial for pets experiencing the physiological toll of Addison's disease.
