What is the treatment for Addison's disease in dogs?

Treatment of Addison's disease involves replacing, or substituting, the hormones that the adrenal glands are not making. The only FDA recommended treatment for canine Addison's is DOCP (Percorten-V) in combination with prednisone tablets. Florinef (oral medication) may also be used. The doses of each of these medications are adjusted to meet the needs of individual patients.
