Connecting the Symptoms of Cushing’s and Helping Them With Supraglan

Supraglan supplement is a formulated herbal remedy that focuses on all of the areas affected by Cushing’s disorder.

Sometimes it can be hard to tell if your dog has a serious illness or is just a little under the weather. Some illnesses take a long time to become apparent. Cushing’s disorder is one such illness that has some symptoms that may not be immediately worrying.

Cushing’s disease occurs when the adrenal glands produce too much cortisol. A tumor in the pituitary glands can cause this. 85% of dogs diagnosed with Cushing’s disease have a tumor in the pituitary gland, but as scary as it sounds, these tumors, known as adenomas, are not life-threatening. They are usually slow-growing. Unfortunately, they can metastasize if left untreated.

Cortisol is known as the stress hormone because it is produced to help the body deal with stress. Stress can be brought on by several factors such as surgery, trauma, a change in routine, or even extreme temperatures. In addition, many pharmaceutical medicines can cause an increase in the body’s cortisol levels.

Cortisol is integral to the body’s well-being and is connected to many of the body’s functions, including blood sugar level, kidney function, the nervous system, the cardiovascular system, and immune response.

Producing too much or too little cortisol can have a major impact on the whole body and will result in symptoms that may seem unconnected, such as increased thirst, trembling, obesity, and heat intolerance.

An illness that impacts so many areas needs holistic support that views the body as a connected organism and helps each affected part of the whole system.

Supraglan for dogs is a specially formulated herbal remedy that focuses on all areas affected by Cushing’s disorder.  It contains wild yam to help restore the hormone balance, licorice to stimulate the adrenal system, and borage to restore the adrenal cortex, stimulating the endocrine system and help eliminate toxins.

In addition to helping the adrenal and endocrine system, Supraglan also contains herbs that support the kidneys, liver, and immune system, which we know are vital to maintaining a healthy body.

If your dog displays any of the symptoms of Cushing’s disorder it may be time for a visit to the vet to make sure the symptoms are serious and not just the symptoms of guilt from a canine who found his way into a bag of forbidden treats.  Supraglan can help Cushing’s Disorders, but there’s no herbal remedy for a guilty dog.
