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 phosphatidylserine for dogs. It has been used successfully in veterinary hospitals since 2005, and it naturally helps to lower cortisol levels. Canine Cushing's Support contains phosphatidylserine, a well-researched nutrient that has been clinically shown to reduce cortisol levels, helping to relieve the symptoms of canine Cushing's disease. Phosphatidylserine is also helpful for brain function, which is beneficial for senior dogs with canine Cushing's disease. The product is well tolerated in sensitive pets, and unlike other forms of phosphatidylserine, our product is soy-free and gluten-free.
Backed by Scientific Research
Phosphatidylserine occurs as a normal component of cell membranes. It is the major phospholipid in the brain. Phosphatidylserine enhances cell membrane fluidity, which improves cellular metabolism. Phosphatidylserine has been shown to help establish normal down-regulation of cortisol secretion in chronically stressed individuals. This is why it has been shown to be helpful in pets with hyperadrenocorticism.
There are extremely limited foods rich in phosphatidylserine, 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. Phosphatidylserine is an essential component of all neuronal membranes, and research suggests that it may help support overall brain wellness. When searching for Cushing’s support for dogs, this supplement is a must-have.
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, 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 diagnosis based on laboratory testing depending on 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 syndrome in dogs 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. For example, if it looks like your dog has a pot belly, a common symptom of Cushing’s, an evaluation of other symptoms may be required to determine the exact cause. Dogs may display some of the following canine Cushing’s disease symptoms, resulting from the production of too much adrenal hormone:
If your dog has symptoms of canine Cushing's disease but a firm diagnosis 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.

- Increased urination

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
Our Canine Cushing's Support supplement has been used to help effectively control symptoms in dogs since 2005. Many dogs show symptoms, such as your dog gaining weight and panting, long before diagnosis. By the time of diagnosis, 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 on 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 and 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.
Natural Treatments for Cushing's Disease in Dogs
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 with 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 affect 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 Canine 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. Amazing Omegas can also be helpful for dogs with Cushing's disease, as it can improve allergy symptoms and reduce inflammation. The combination of these supplements provides a holistic treatment for Cushing’s in dogs that eases discomfort caused by symptoms and leads to a healthier life.
“Max is a 12 year old Standard Poodle with Canine Cushing's Disease (hyperadrenocortism). In this condition, the adrenal glands overproduce a hormone called cortisol resulting in symptoms such as panting, excess water consumption, increased appetite, bloated belly, hair and skin problems and a weakened immune system. The Ask Ariel Canine Cushings Support supplement helps to reduce overall cortisol levels, thereby improving the dog's symptoms of Cushings Disease."
"Max has been using the Canine Cushings Support formula for 4 months with good results. Max's appetite has gone from voracious, always hungry to pretty normal. His thirst was almost unquenchable, drank so much water! He was panting constantly. We are so happy we found a remedy to help him with his Cushing's Disease." - D. Franke, Wisconsin 2016
*Added Value To Help Your Pet Get the Best Results
