Supraglan, Vet-Approved Treatment for Canine Cushings

Supraglan is a vet-approved natural treatment for both dog Cushings Disease (Hyperadrenalcortisim) and Addisons Disease in dogs. The popularity of Supraglan is based on the fact it is an all-natural herbal treatment, currently legalized and manufactured in the United States. It is also popular for older dogs who are ill with either of the diseases as it is safe, gentle and effective on their sensitive and aging bodies.

Previously, the only treatments for Cushings disease in dogs were expensive and harsh medications with adverse side effects, or surgery for the removal of tumors on the dog’s adrenal glands. Surgery on an aging pet who is ill and weakened is dangerous and sometimes fatal. One of the more serious side effects is that too much damage can be done to the adrenal gland, with the treatment considered irreversible.

Facts about canine Cushings disease

Canine Cushings disorder is a major metabolic disorder, typically affecting older dogs — cats are very seldom affected. What is affected are the dog’s adrenal glands that keep the electrolytes in natural balance and regulate its metabolism, influencing the animal’s organs, reactions and moods. The hormone that is primarily involved in the adrenal gland for canine Cushings disease is cortisol, also called cortisone.

A dog can develop Addisons disease if they produce too little cortisol or they can die. If they have too much of the hormone, they may develop canine Cushings disease. Cushings disorder affects the dog’s muscle, their skin, blood vessels, blood pressure, the liver, an abundance of calcium loss through the kidneys, the brain, and the immune system.

Both diseases can be treated with Supraglan and its natural ingredients, able to put some balance into a dog’s adrenal system. In the case of canine Cushings disease, the natural treatment slows down the overproduction of corticosteroid hormones. On the other hand, traditional treatments are said to work like chemotherapy, which is dangerous for older dogs who are in a weakened state. In fact, traditional treatments are said to erode layers off the adrenal glands which will influence the release of corticosteroid.

What’s good about Supraglan?

Supraglan for canine Cushings disease was developed by a naturopathic veterinarian to ease the symptoms of a dog with Cushings disorder. It was originally developed to be gentle, effective, and safe for long-term use without any negative side effects — all which have a lot to do with its popularity today.

Supraglan promises to:

(1) reduce the dog’s thirst and regulates its continuous urinating. This is by working with the liver/kidney and digestive systems.
(2) balance the endocrine system, which affects the blood sugar levels.
(3) increase the dog’s muscle usage and ability to move around with its anti-inflammatory.
(4) work with the immune system to protect against infection.
(5) promote healthy skin and coat whereas the disease causes massive skin and coat problems.

    I just received the Supraglan on Friday April 20, 2012. I gave my dog who is standard snhauzer 3 years old the recommended dose which was one drop for every 2lbs (1kg) of body weight. I gave him that only one time the Friday and One time the next day which was Saturday. He had seem . to be more active before I gave it to him. That Saturday night he threw up. He threw up two times yesterday and two times today which is Monday. He is now not eating his dog food nor snacks but is drinking plenty of water. He is losing weight rapidly. What suggestions do you have? I need to know asap because I am getting scared and do not want to lose my baby.

      Cynthia……if he is throwing it up, stop giving it to him. He may have other issues. Have you taken him to the vet to rule out other problems?

      Cynthia, I suggest taking your dog off supraglan asap. I know everyones situations are different, but if you see immediate issues, supraglan could be causing irreversible damage. Go to your vet TODAY! I used supraglan and regret it.

    Hello, I appreciate the info that you have for Cushings. I have been using Supraglan for approximately two months with no results, yet.

    Based on your advice given on a different thread about Cushing’s, I went to the natural wonder pets website. The product, Corti Quel, seems like a possible next step for me. I did submit my questions to them, but it seems I am unable to find any supporting evidence of Corti Quels results.

    I also want to know more about Gary LeMon. Do you have any insight regarding any articles, lab results, ..etc. about Corti Quel? Thanks.
