Most veterinarians have diagnosed and managed dogs with Addison’s; but did you know that >90% of us are not maximising the quality of life and longevity of this patient population? Did you know that prednisolone is one of the worst drugs to use for supplementation? Did you know that DOCP starting dosages are too high in >90% of patients? Did you know that a flatline ACTH stimulation test is not always diagnostic? And did you know that atypical Addison’s is likely heavily underdiagnosed? These topics, as well as other ones, will be discussed by Professor Stijn Niessen during this state of the art webinar on hypoadrenocorticism (or do we call it Addison’s?). Attendance of the webinar should ensure your current and future patients do not only survive, but will truly thrive. In the process survival times will be lengthened without you even have realised we were shortening it through common out-dated management practices.
