Gracie
Name: ~Gracie~

Breed: Standard Poodle

Sex: Female

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 5 years and 4 days old


Comments: Gracie was diagnosed 9-25-01, 4 days after her 5th birthday as a primary Addison's dog. We think she has been suffering AD symptoms since she was 4, but finally crashed in September of 2001. She weighs 40 lbs and is on 0.4 mg per day of fludrocortisone and 1.25 mg per day of prednisolone. She is as perky as ever now!


Savanna

Sex: Female

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 3 1/2 years old (Oct 2001)


Comments: This photo was taken the night before going to the Vet hospital to stay and be diagnosed with AD and put on IV fluids. She was very ill as you can see in her face!

Will
Name: ~Will~

Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 3 years, 4 months old


Comments: Will was diagnosed with cancer at a year and a half. A specialist told us he had four months to live and our hearts were broken. After two surgeries with our vet we proved the "specialist" wrong. Will is full of life, he loves hunting, fishing, playing with his pal Alex (13 year old Golden Retriever), squirrel watching and taking trips up north to the cottage. We couldn't have been happier to find out Addison's is a treatable disease and the support of the group is a real blessing.


Quincy

Breed: Standard Poodle

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 16 months old


Comments: Here is our beautiful boy who, except for the 48 hours or so that he was *very* sick, has exhibited no symptoms/problems since being on medication. His sister/veterinarian and brother-in-law/veterinarian take very good care of him!
