An interactive website for owners of dogs with Cushing’s syndrome has been launched by Dechra Veterinary Products.
The site contains information and resources designed to help dog owners whose pets have been prescribed Vetoryl understand the condition and monitor their progress.
Dogs with Cushing’s syndrome produce excessive amounts of hormone that helps regulate the body’s metabolism. This can have harmful effects on other organs as the body loses the ability to regulate itself.
Dechra UK brand manager Craig Sankey said: “Cushing’s syndrome is a common canine endocrine disorder, occurring mostly in middle aged and older dogs.
“It is a condition where Vetoryl can be used to help restore a dog’s vitality. Diagnosis can be worrying for owners and the aim of the website is to help increase knowledge surrounding Cushing’s syndrome.
“The interactive treatment log book can be used by owners to chart progress and provide reassurance about how their dog is responding to Vetoryl therapy.”
The website examines symptoms, diagnosis and treatment options, with owners being able to register for an interactive treatment log book.
