Addison's disease (or Hypoadrenocorticism) is a hormonal disease where your dog's adrenal glands can no longer produce or circulate steroids and mineralocorticoids (these are steroid hormones created naturally by their body).
Addisonian dogs find it really hard to maintain a healthy level of water, glucose, and electrolytes, and this lifelong condition is usually controlled by daily medications and steroids. Studies show that a dog whose diet is made from poor quality ingredients can have nutritional deficiencies - this can cause additional stress to your dog’s system which may make everything worse.
While Addison’s can’t be controlled solely by diet, our freshly-prepared, gently cooked meals can be a great fit. Because we control the exact ingredients your dog's eating, you'll know they're not dealing with any of the nasties that can be added to commercial dog food. All our recipes are 100% nutritionally complete and balanced and should help a dog suffering with Addison's to thrive as well as enjoy their dinners.
