|Our 4 yr old English Setter, Might have addison's Disease. She had a addisonian episode saturday morning and almost died. Her gums were pure white, and was unresponsive! She had Diareha and vomiting that day. They put her on a IV drip and a machine to raise her blood pressure. She had extremly low blood pressure, low sodium and high potassium levels.
We will find out tomorrow if she has it for sure. She is on 2.5 mg of Predisone. And if she has Addison's, she will be on it the rest of her life.
Has anyone else with see have Addisons? Is it typical for this breed?
