Cushing’s Disease in Pets

Pets with Cushing’s Disease, also known as hyperadrenocorticism, may experience a range of health issues due to the excessive production of cortisol — a hormone essential for stress response and metabolic regulation. Join us on Wednesday, July 17th at 6PM ET as Dr. Dennis Slade, Specialist in Internal Medicine at AMC, discusses the major forms of Cushing’s Disease in dogs and cats. While the variety of clinical signs can make diagnosing this disorder a challenge, with proper treatment and monitoring, pets can maintain a good quality of life.

This is a free, online-only event hosted via Zoom (https://zoom.us/​​​). The Zoom link will be emailed to all registered participants the day of the event. Please email UsdanInstitute@amcny.org with any questions.
