What is Canine Cushing's Support?
Canine Cushing's Support is a safe, natural supplement that can be used for dogs diagnosed with Cushing's Disease and those with symptoms of "probable" Cushing's. Canine Cushing's Support supplement contains the best phosphatidyl serine for dogs. It has been used successfully in veterinary hospitals since 2005, as it naturally helps to lower cortisol levels. Canine Cushing's Support contains Phosphatidyl Serine, a well-researched nutrient that has been clinically shown to reduce cortisol levels, helping to relieve the symptoms of Canine Cushing's Disease. Canine Cushings Support is also essential for brain function making it an ideal supplement for senior dogs. The product is well tolerated in sensitive pets and unlike other forms of Phosphatidyl Serine - our product is soy-free and gluten-free.
Backed By Scientific Research
Phosphatidyl Serine occurs as a normal component of cell membranes. It is the major phospholipid in the brain. Phosphatidyl Serine enhances cell membrane fluidity, which improves cellular metabolism. Phosphatidyl Serine has been shown to help establish normal down-regulation of cortisol secretion in chronically stressed individuals. This is why it has been so helpful in helping pets with hyperadrenocorticism.
There are no foods rich in Phosphatidyl Serine, except for brain, so using Canine Cushing's Support as a canine Cushing's treatment is the only way to increase your dog's levels of this valuable brain nutrient. Phosphatidyl Serine is an essential component of all neuronal membranes and research suggests that it may help support overall brain wellness.
Scottish Terrier With Canine Cushing's Disease is Doing Great!
“We wanted to let you know how great Archie is doing with all the help you have given us. With Archie being a Scottie we have had to deal with Scottie Cramp and the possibility of Cushings. When he developed Scottie Cramp the breeder told us to not expose him to any of the causes that made the Scottie cramp happen. Instead, with your help, we exposed him to the causes which are anything that made him excited. By doing this we made the causes a norm in his life which have diminished the cramp or done away with it all together. His legs are now strong and he can go up and down the stairs without any help. By watching his blood tests we have been monitoring his ALK Phosphates and Cortisol levels. When they started to increase, we added Canine Cushing support. After being on the product six months his water intake is back to normal and so far his blood work is stabilizing. Along with the Cushing support he is on a raw diet and a number of other supplements (Lypozyme, Special SAMe for dogs, Gastro ULC, and Amazing Omegas) you have recommended for balance. We want to thank you so much for all the help and care for “Archie”. - Rich, Patty and “Archie”, California 2016
Canine Cushing's Causes and Diagnoses
Cushing's Disease (hyperadrenocorticism) can be hard to diagnose and many older dogs can display symptoms of it. Some dogs may not meet the criteria for diagnoses based on laboratory testing depending upon the stage of the disease. Based on symptoms, a veterinarian may diagnose "probable Cushing's" and have the patient repeat testing in a period of time. The three primary causes of Cushing's Disease include a small pituitary tumor (most cases), an adrenal gland tumor or the long-term use of high dose steroids. The result is that the body overproduces cortisol.
Does Your Dog Have These Symptoms?
Symptoms of Canine Cushing's Disease may be varied and seem unrelated. Dogs may display some of the following symptoms resulting from the production of too much adrenal hormone:
- excess water consumption
- increased urination
- increased appetite
- bloated, pot-bellied abdomen
- high blood pressure
- hair loss--usually symmetric
- thinning of the skin and fur
- susceptibility to infections and diabetes
- weakening of the skeletal muscles; exercise intolerance
If your dog has symptoms of Canine Cushing's Disease, but a firm diagnoses was not attained, Canine Cushing's Support is a safe, gentle product that you can try to see if it alleviates symptoms. If you are currently using prescription medication, please work with your veterinarian to introduce this product as a supplemental treatment for dogs with Cushing's Disease. Many dog owners use the Canine Cushing's Support along with medication and can reduce the amount of medication required.
Dogs with Cushing's Disease get better results when supplements are used along with diet changes. Please include your dog's diet on the order form at checkout. We will include a free diet suggestion (based on your dog's age, health issues and symptoms) on the packing slip that comes with the product directions.
Recommended By Veterinarians Nationwide Because The Product Effectively Reduces Cortisol Levels
The Canine Cushing's Support supplement has been used to help dogs effectively control symptoms since 2005. Many dogs show symptoms long before diagnoses. By the time of diagnoses, there may be a natural tendency to want to immediately use medications to help your pet feel better. Cushing's Disease is a complex endocrine disorder that arises over time. Medications are available and may be necessary depending upon the severity of the symptoms, but they can also come with a great deal of side effects. Regardless of whether you choose to use medications or wait and try supplements first, to help your dog feel better, you need to address the pet as a whole. Dogs with Cushing's often have a history of allergies, inflammation and fare much better on an anti-inflammatory diet along with supplements that not only reduce cortisol but support the liver (the liver is working overtime to filter the excess hormones) and overall health. If you address your dog's allergies, digestion and liver along with whatever cortisol treatment you choose, your dog will feel better overall.
Comprehensive Program = More Effective Treatment of Your Dog's Health
While we wish there was a magic pill to take all of your dog's symptoms away, Canine Cushing's is a complex endocrine disorder that needs to be addressed in a more comprehensive holistic approach. After successfully helping hundreds of dogs with Canine Cushing's improve their symptoms in veterinary consultations over 10 years working with Holistic Veterinarian Dr. David Gordon, Susan Davis determined that both diet changes AND a few targeted supplements were needed to get the best results. Hormone disorders effect many organs and in the case of Canine Cushing's, the liver is heavily overburdened from the excess cortisol. Dogs with Canine Cushing's may have a history of allergy symptoms and inflammation which is why added support for liver and digestion is essential to a more effective treatment. Dogs with Cushing's typically have elevated blood alkaline phosphatase and/or serum blood liver markers which is why liver support supplements are essential. The liver supplements help the liver clear out the excess hormones helping your dog handle the disease more effectively. Since the liver is so integrally involved in digestion, using the Liver & Gallbladder Support Kit which includes Power Probiotic and Lypozyme (aids in fat digestion --a hallmark problem for dogs with elevated liver enzymes) along with the Liver and Gallbladder Support supplement. The products in the Kit improve digestion and support overall metabolism of the excess cortisol. Oxicell is a one-of-a-kind topical cream that delivers glutathione, SOD and other important antioxidants (vital to the liver and overall health) directly into the body. This product is very easy to administer, helps fight free radical damage and inflammation and is also an important product for pets with Cushing's Disease. Amazing Omegas can also be helpful for dogs with Cushing's Disease and liver disease.
