Cushing’s Disease, which is also called hypercortisolism and hyperadrenocorticism, is an endocrine disorder that causes your dog’s body to make too much cortisone or cortisol from the adrenal glands.

Based on research and our experience, we recommend staring with 35-50 mg daily to treat Cushing’s. You may find that your pet needs less as they recover.
