Group Description

CanineCushing's-AutoimmuneCare (CCAC) is an international community of over 5,000 lay people and veterinarians interested in canine/feline Cushing's syndrome (hyperadrenocorticism), steroid hormone aberrations, and associated disorders (e.g. liver disease, pancreatitis, diabetes mellitus, proteinuria, kidney disease, urolithiasis, urinary tract infection, incontinence, heart disease, hypertension, thromboembolism, myotonia, osteoporosis, calcinosis cutis, hyperparathyroidism, hypothyroidism, euthyroid sick syndrome, pituitary macrotumor, adrenal gland tumors, atypical Cushing's disease, Alopecia X, hyperestrinism, hypogonadism, SARDS, iatrogenic hypoadrenocorticism, Addisonian crisis).

We offer a wide range of educational resources, including shared experiences of pet owners, the expertise of veterinarians, guest speakers, and tools to manage your pet's medical care. We value critical thinking and present current, factual and balanced information. Discussions focus on the etiology, clinical signs, laboratory findings, diagnosis, treatment options, cutting-edge therapies (e.g. Dermatonin implant, radiation therapy, hypophysectomy) and management of Cushing's (typical, atypical, iatrogenic) in dogs and cats.

Other topics include science-based medicine, pseudoscience and dubious alternative therapies, endocrine disease in other species, breed predisposition to disease, vaccination guidelines, therapeutic nutrition, balanced home-prepared diets, financial aid, physical therapy, geriatrics and hospice care. Peer-reviewed articles in veterinary journals and conference proceedings are also discussed.

Welcome to our friendly, caring and supportive community!

Cushing's disease is not a death sentence. It's not an easy battle to fight, but it can be fought with success. Join us to learn more...
