Hormonal/Endocrine Pet Medications

 
Endocrine related diseases occur when the endocrine glands produce an excess or insufficient amount of endocrine hormones. These types of diseases include diabetes, hyperthyroid disease, hypothyroid disease, Addison's Disease, and Cushing's Disease. To help restore balance to your pet's health, our pharmacy specialists recommend the following pet meds:

 
  

Diabetes

 
Symptoms of Diabetes: Weight loss, weakness, frequent urination, excessive thirst
Pets Most at Risk: Dogs and Cats

(Cats only)
  

  

Addison's Disease

 
Symptoms of Addison's Disease: vomiting/diarrhea, weight loss, loss of appetite, weakness, excessive drinking and urinating
Pets Most at Risk: Dogs
  • Pets with Addison's Disease can experience pain and illness due to abnormal levels of potassium and sodium. These abnormal levels are caused by deficiencies in cortisol or aldosterone and can be restored with pet meds like Percorten-V, Fludrocortisone, or Prednisone.
  • To help your pet's body absorb nutrients, our pharmacists recommend adding enzymes into your pet's diet with NaturVet Digestive Enzymes with Prebiotics & Probiotics. This product also helps maintain a healthy digestive system which helps control diarrhea and vomiting symptoms.
 
 
  

  

Hypothyroid and Hyperthyroid Disease

 
 
Symptoms of Hypothyroid Disease: dry and scaly skin, hair loss, weakness, weight gain, and constipation
Pets Most at Risk: Dogs
 
 
  • Soloxine is a popular pet medication prescribed by many veterinarians because it is used as thyroid hormone therapy.
  • To help maintain your pet's skin and coat health, consider giving your pet Omega 3 fatty acids, like Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet.
 
 
 
 
Symptoms of Hyperthyroid Disease: increased appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, thickened nails, weight loss, rapid breathing
Pets Most at Risk: Senior cats
 
 
  • Tapazole is a popular prescription pet med for an over active thyroid (hyperthyroidism) in cats. It helps to control the excessive amounts of thyroid hormones produced by the body.
  • A cat with hyperthyroidism may not be absorbing the nutrients needed to stay healthy. Enzymes like those found inNaturVet Digestive Enzymes with Prebiotics & Probiotics may be able to help nutrient absorption, as well as manage vomiting and diarrhea symptoms.
 
  

  

Cushing's Disease

 
 
Symptoms of Cushing's Disease: increased appetite, excessive drinking or urination, swollen abdomen, and darkened skin
Pets Most at Risk: Dogs
 
 
  • Generally, normal amounts of cortisol is good for your dog's health. However, excessive amounts of cortisol can weaken the immune system, which can increase your pet's risk for secondary infections and diseases.
  • Blood tests performed by your veterinarian will help determine which gland (the pituitary gland or the adrenal glands) are producing excess amounts of cortisol. Lysodren and Anipryl are two commonly prescribed pet medications for dogs with Cushing's disease.
 
 
  

  
 
Max's Tip: Diet plays a significant role in managing many of the diseases discussed above. To help keep your pet healthy, feed your pet a diet that contains protein and lean meats with low amounts of carbohydrates.
