Course Description

This presentation provides an overview of the etiology of hyperadrenocorticism in dogs as well as a review of the signalment and common historical, physical, and routine laboratory test results. The value (including sensitivity and specificity) of various “screening” (ACTH stimulation test, low dose dexamethasone suppression test, urine cortisol/creatinine ratio) and “discriminatory” tests (high dose dexamethasone suppression test, abdominal ultrasound examination, ACTH assay is reviewed. Finally, proper medical treatment of hyperadrenocorticism using mitotane or trilostane is discussed.
