Natural Diet For Cushings Disease in Dogs

Cushing's Disease affects energy level and organ function. It can be treated medically, and it can also be treated with a natural diet and herbal supplements. Consult your veterinarian before beginning any diet regimen for your dog.

Cushing's Disease

Cushing’s Disease is otherwise known as hyperadrenocorticism. It's common in older dogs and is usually caused by a tumour of the pituitary or adrenal glands. It causes excess cortisol to be released in the dog’s body.

Raw Meat

Raw meats such as beef, chicken or turkey as part of a natural diet may help treat Cushing’s disease, according to DogPro.com. PetSynergy.com suggests raw organ meat, such as liver or kidney.

Vegetables

Veggies may also help your dogfight Cushing’s Disease by providing necessary nutrients and antioxidants to combat the tumour, according to DogPro.com. These could include carrots, broccoli, squash and Brussels sprouts, raw or cooked.

Herb Supplements

Herbal supplements may also help. A popular supplement is sold under the brand name Cushex. It includes herbs that promote adrenal and pituitary health such as dandelion, arsenicum and merc sol.

Other Considerations

Diet alone may not be enough for your dog to overcome Cushing’s disease. Removal of any known tumours is common, and drug treatment is also available.
