Cushing's disease from steroids in dogs

Cushing’s disease is the most common form of endogenous Cushing’s syndrome. It is caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland that secretes excessive amounts of a hormone called Adrenocorticotropic hormone, or ACTH. 1,4 Fortunately, this type of tumor is typically benign . Unlike a cancerous ( malignant ) tumor, a benign tumor stays in its original location and will not spread. 1,3,6 After you are diagnosed with Cushing’s syndrome, it is important that your doctor continues the diagnostic process to determine the cause of hypercortisolism.

The other aspect of taking care of a horse with Cushing’s Disease is management. These horses are susceptible to worm burdens, infections, weight loss and laminitis, especially if they are not being treated medically. Therefore on a routine and regular basis, your horse will need clipping of excessive hair, checking for wounds and infections, worming, dental checks and vaccinations kept up to date.  While it is acceptable to shoe a horse every 6-8 weeks,  it is imperative that every horse should spend at least 6 weeks every year without shoes.

Surgical removal of tumors like adrenal adenomas and adenocarcinomas may be required in some cases. Surgical procedures are costly and usually not very effective due to the involvement of two different glands and their respective secretions, which usually causes severe secondary complications. Radiation therapy is an alternative to surgical procedures. Radiation therapy is considered very effective, but is very costly, time consuming (3 Months) initially followed by long term follow up of the pituitary gland to look for any recurring cancers.
