Cushing's disease, or hyperadrenocorticism, is a common endocrine disorder affecting pets, particularly in their senior years. Our specially formulated pet botanicals, enriched with natural ingredients like nettle, licorice, eleuthero, astragalus, dandelion root and leaf, and burdock, aim to provide holistic support for pets dealing with the challenges of Cushing's disease. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of using our botanical blend and shed light on what Cushing's disease entails.

Understanding Cushing's Disease in Pets: Cushing's disease occurs when the adrenal glands produce excessive amounts of cortisol, a steroid hormone. This hormonal imbalance can lead to a variety of symptoms in pets, including increased thirst and urination, weight gain, muscle weakness, and changes in coat quality. Our pet botanicals are crafted to address these symptoms and support overall well-being by promoting hormonal balance.

Key Herbs in Our Pet Botanicals:

Nettle: Benefits: Nettle is rich in nutrients and has anti-inflammatory properties. It may aid in relieving inflammation and providing essential vitamins and minerals for pets with Cushing's disease.

Licorice: Benefits: Licorice is known for its anti-inflammatory and adaptogenic properties. In the context of Cushing's disease, it may help modulate cortisol levels and support the adrenal glands.

Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng): Benefits: Eleuthero is an adaptogenic herb that can assist the body in adapting to stress. This can be beneficial for pets with Cushing's disease, as stress management is crucial in their care.

Astragalus: Benefits: Astragalus is an immune-modulating herb that may support the immune system. Pets with Cushing's disease may be more vulnerable to infections, making immune support essential.

Dandelion Root and Leaf: Benefits: Dandelion is known for its diuretic properties and its potential to support liver function. In the context of Cushing's disease, it may aid in managing fluid balance and promoting overall liver health.

Burdock: Benefits: Burdock has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It may contribute to managing inflammation and supporting the body's natural detoxification processes.


How Our Pet Botanicals Can Help:

Hormonal Balance: Our botanical blend is carefully designed to promote hormonal balance, helping to alleviate symptoms associated with Cushing's disease.

Adaptogenic Support: Adaptogenic herbs like eleuthero and licorice assist pets in coping with stress, a crucial aspect of managing Cushing's disease.

Immune and Liver Support: Ingredients like astragalus, dandelion, and burdock contribute to immune and liver health, addressing secondary concerns associated with Cushing's disease.


It's important to note that while our pet botanicals can be a valuable addition to a pet's care routine, they should be used under the guidance of a veterinarian. Always consult with your veterinarian to ensure the best care for your pet's specific needs.
