Group Description

Hello and welcome to Addison Dogs UK.

We are still only a small group. (Established December 2008) However, please don't be put off by this. The members are a very caring group who want to help not only their own dogs but those of the other members too.

There are other very good Addison groups on Yahoo but they are USA based and most treat their dogs with DOCP, a monthly injection, whereas here in the UK, Florinef is the only drug freely available for treatment. However overseas members are welcome if their dogs are receiving Florinef treatment.

We would like to welcome anyone who is living with a dog that has Addison Disease, specially those whose pet is newly diagnosed and who are feeling totally lost and out of their depth.

Our aim is to offer what help, support and advice we can based on our own experiences with our own Addison Dogs. However, we must stress that we are not vets but ordinary dog owners who nevertheless, have gained quite a lot of knowledge through the ups and downs of life with an Addison dog.

Mostly we want to offer hope. A properly treated and stabilised Addison Dog should act, behave and enjoy life exactly the same as any other dog. There is no reason that they cannot live out their normal lifespan.

The photograph is of my own girl, Jenny, who was diagnosed with Addison at the age of 9 years. On the 9th March 2009 Jenny sadly passed away. I hasten to add not from Addisons - she developed Megaesophagus and finally aspirate pneumonia at the age of 13.5 years old. This site is now dedicated to the memory of Jenny.
