Juvenile Onset Addison’s Disease (JADD)

The juvenile form of Hypoadrenocorticism can be expressed in tollers between 8 weeks and 12 months of age when the adrenal glands stop secreting the body’s natural steroid hormones necessary for the regulation of the blood’s electrolytes sodium and potassium. The general clinic signs are lethargy, anorexia, vomiting, and diarrhea, and eye problems. Addison’s disease is diagnosed with the ACTH Stimulation Test performed by the veterinarian.
