Yes, dogs can get addisons but it isn't common. It is usually caused by atrophy of the adrenal glands. Usually in middle aged female dogs. Signs of addisons include weight loss, drinking and peeing more and muscle weakness. You must take your dog to the vet to get addisons diagnosed. It can be hard to diagnose as looks like many other diseases. They may do a ACTH stimulation test where they take a blood sample…
I have Type 2 Addisons, which means I also have Diabetes and Hypothyroidism. My symptoms when I was first diagnosed with Addisons was that I drastically lost weight, turned jaundice in color, and couldn't eat for an entire month. I would get sick quite often, and my doctors prognosis was constantly an eating disorder. I was very dehydrated, and my cortisol blood levels were low. My potassium and iron levels also drastically changed.
