Hello, and welcome to AddisonDogs_
We are a diverse group of individuals from around the world who are striving toward healthy, active lives for our canine friend(s) with Addison's disease. We seek to improve wellness for the whole dog -- including body, mind and spirit. Our goal is to foster open communication about the variety of options available to the caregiver of a dog with Addisons disease.
We discuss many topics such as diet, vaccinations and activities that our dogs participate in. We're not just a support group, we're family. Because many people have strong opinions about these topics, we ask you to remember your manners and be polite to all list members. It is okay to disagree, but it is not okay to belittle another person's opinion.
Feel free to ask any questions. We wish this list to be helpful and educational for all, and a place for ADog caretakers to consult with and learn from each other.
OUR DOGS ARE STARS!!! Each year Addison Dogs volunteers produce and sell calendars which are full of information on diagnosing and treating AD. The calendar includes spectacular photos of our own ADogs, as well as an interview with a prominent veterinarian who discusses dosing Percorten-V. All proceeds are used to educate and assist caretakers of dogs with Addison's disease. To order a 2013 calendar visit www.addisondogs.com/store
