Cushings in dogs occurs when adrenal glands create too much cortisol. Cortisol is created when the pituitary gland communicates a stress signal to the adrenal gland.
Cortisol controls many important physiological processes. It controls functions of the cardiovascular system, regulates blood sugar levels and kidney function, balances metabolism, and regulates both the nervous system and immune response.
of Cushings in Dogs
When cortisol is elevated, the body experiences a range of negative consequences including
· Excessive water consumption
· Excessive urination
· Loss of bladder control (accidents around the house)
· Increased appetite, bot belly
· Weight gain (mostly redistribution of fat)
· Loss of muscle mass
· Lethargy, weakness
· Baldness or thinning hair
· Calcified lumps in the skin
· Weakened immune system
· Pancreatitis and/or diabetes
If your dog has suffered from autoimmune conditions like chronic allergies or rheumatoid arthritis, you may see improvement in these conditions as the immune system is suppressed by the excess of cortisol. Overall, however, Cushings in dogs has a detrimental effect on health and these improvements are likely to be temporary.
By far the most common cause, accounting for 85% to 90% of all cases of Cushing's in dogs, are pituitary gland tumors. The tumor causes your dog's pituitary gland to overproduce the hormone (ACTH), which tells the adrenal glands to make cortisol.
Cushing's in dogs may also be caused by a tumor in the adrenal gland itself. This tumor will cause the adrenal gland to overproduce cortisol, regardless of whether it is instructed to do so by the pituitary gland. These tumors may be benign or malignant and of various sizes.
Cushing’s may also be caused by long-term steroid treatment. The only treatment in this case is to remove the steroids, which will generally cause a resurgence in the condition being treated by the steroids.
Conventional treatment of Cushing's in dogs involves the surgical removal of the tumor if it occurs in the adrenal gland or management with two drugs, trilostane (Vetoryl®) and mitotane (Lysodren®). If the tumor is malignant, a course of cancer treatment such as radiation or chemo may also be advised.
Balance is the Answer
Ayurvedic medicine was used thousands of years ago to treat symptoms that today we call Metabolic Syndrome in humans and, similarly, Cushings in dogs. These proven herbs are used in Primalix CortiQuel to act directly to regulate pituitary and adrenal glands, decrease cortisol levels and improve overall body function, without the risks of surgery or the crippling side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.Back to top

IngredientsBack to top
Rhodiola Rosea root is part of a group of herbs known as adaptogens. These herbs can find stresses within physiological systems and restore balance. Rhodiola Rosea root protects against stress and enhances immune system function.
In clinical studies, this herb has been found to normalize heart rate after intense exercise, increase protein synthesis, and improve the nervous system. It increases blood flow to the muscle and brain, increasing mental functions and muscle tone. Rhodiola root normalizes stress responses that increase cortisol production by mediating cortisol secretion levels.
root is well known for its ability to bring the
immune system up to optimum functioning, but it is also excellent for buffering
the body against stress. It produces natural anti-stress compounds and is even
believed to interrupt delivery of stress hormones such as cortisol by making it
more difficult for them to bind to receptors. Astragalus root can reduce the
overproduction of cortisol caused by Cushing's in dogs and prevent the body
from absorbing existing cortisol.
Dandelion root cleanses the liver, kidneys and colon, and decongests the gallbladder by increasing bile production flow. It stimulates cell metabolism by helping the body push metabolic waste into the blood to be cleansed by the liver. Dandelion root makes the following three ingredients more effective in treating Cushing's in dogs:
Alfalfa is well known to promote pituitary gland function. For thousands of years ancient Chinese have used Alfalfa to alleviate fluid retention and swelling. This nutrition powerhouse has about 300 nutrients, as well as phytonutrients, including protein, beta-carotene, vitamins A, B1, B2, and many more. Alfalfa alkalizes the system, which makes it more difficult for cancer to grow. Alfalfa reduces some of the symptoms that occur in dogs with Cushing's, such as joint and muscle pain and fatigue.
Shiitake mushroom is a powerful anti-tumor agent thanks to the polysaccharides and glycoprotein it contains. Shitake is also rich in other substances that are antiviral, encouraging the development of platelets and helping to balance cholesterol. Shiitake can enhance cell-mediated immune responses and help the body regulate biological responses including those related to cortisol production.
