CortiQuel for Cushings in Dogs
Our Primalix CortiQuel® for Cushing’s syndrome combines old wisdom with new science to deliver these powerful healing nutrients to the very glands whose imbalance has brought on Cushing’s.
In researching our formula we uncovered findings that we think you’ll find quite remarkable!
Symptoms of Cushings in Dogs
Gradually a Cushingoid dog will develop symptoms which can often be mistaken for normal signs of ageing or even signs of completely different health issues. The most common symptoms of Cushings in dogs include:
Excessive water consumption
Loss of bladder control (accidents around the house)
Increased appetite, bot belly
Weight gain (mostly redistribution of fat)
Loss of muscle mass
Baldness or thinning hair
Calcified lumps in the skin
Weakened immune system
Pancreatitis and/or diabetes
Ironically, previous symptoms of inflammatory and auto-immune conditions may subside. Dogs with chronic allergies or rheumatoid arthritis may get “spontaneously” better when they develop Cushing's because of the flood of cortisone gushing through their veins, suppressing the immune system. This trade-off may prompt a loving dog owner to reconsider any treatment, or at least rethink any harsh or invasive procedure.
Why Balance is the Answer
Don’t get me wrong. Cortisol is a good thing. It’s one of life’s essentials. It is released in response to stress and impacts a number of biological systems and functions including:
blood sugar levels
But when blood cortisol levels are elevated as they are in hyperadrenocorticism – Cushing’s – the sensible holistic approach is to nourish the very glands in question – the adrenals and pituitary. Remember, balance and wellness can be achieved with specific herbs that act on targeted organs, glands and systems.
