Addison's Disease in Standard Poodles

Charlie living with Addison's Disease
Addison's disease is also known as hypoadrenocorticism. It is an insufficient production of adrenal hormones by the adrenal gland. Since these hormones are essential for life, this is an extremely serious disease and it must be treated as such.
Adrenal insufficiency can be primary or secondary. Primary adrenocorticism affects salt/potassium balance in the body and glucorticoid as well. Secondary adrenocorticism usually only affects the glucocorticoids. It is not known why primary adrenocorticism occurs but it may be an immune mediated process. Secondary adrenocorticism probably occurs most often when prednisone or other cortisone being administered for medical reasons are suddenly withdrawn. It can occur as a result of pituitary cancer or some other process that interferes with production of hormones that stimulate the adrenal glands.
Most dogs with Addison's disease initially have gastrointestinal disturbances like vomiting. Lethargy is also a common early sign. Poor appetite can occur as well. These are pretty vague signs and it is extremely easy to miss this disease. More severe signs occur when a dog with hypoadrenocorticism is stressed or when potassium levels get high enough to interfere with heart function. Dogs with this problem will sometimes suffer severe shock symptoms when stressed, which can lead to a rapid death. When potassium levels get high heart arrythmias occur or even heart stoppage which also is fatal. In some cases, especially secondary Addison's disease, there are no detectable electrolyte changes.
This disease can be picked up by changes in the ratio between sodium or potassium by accident at times. When this happens it is still extremely important to treat for it. It is confirmed by an ACTH response test -- administration of this hormone should stimulate production of adrenal hormones. If this does not occur then hypoadrenocorticism is present. In cases in which the electrolyte levels are normal this is the only test for the problem and it will be missed unless it is looked for specifically. At times this disease can be hard to differentiate from renal failure because the symptoms and even the blood work can be similar, so the ACTH response test may be necessary to differentiate them.

Is a Pet food and health products business right for you?

Well, I don’t know about every business opportunity out there, but I
chose Life's Abundance for some very specific reasons.

businesses make you look like a salesman because you are selling
things that people don’t want to hear about. Every time friends or
family see you coming they want to turn the other way. Life's Abundance
is better described as a real occupation. We have, what we call,
“the ease of engagement.” People actually want to talk about their
pets. They don’t view you as a salesman, but more like a business
LONG TERM. I’m not a big fan of fad products that change people’s
habits, because it won’t last. On the other hand, people have to
feed their pets. And since the products work, they stick with our
company for years and years. That means you can build your income for
the long run. After all, if your going to invest your time and energy
into something, it only makes sense that you want it to last.

 So I don’t know if what we have is right for you, but it has
certainly been a great choice for me. What do you think?

Why Egg is so good for your dog

A egg a day keeps the vet away.  Whether you feed you dog an egg or not, look for a food such as Life's Abundance to contain the health benefits of the incredible edible egg.

In terms of "bio availability", egg is considered the "golden standard" of proteins in terms of digestibility.
Protein Digestibility List
(Note: Values in table are approximate, as they have been taken from several nutrition sources and personal communications with nutrition experts.)
Egg whites 1.00
Muscle meats (chicken, beef, lamb) 0.92
Organ meats (kidney, liver, heart) 0.90
Milk, cheese 0.89
Fish 0.75
Soy 0.75Rice 0.72
Oats 0.66
Yeast 0.63
Wheat 0.60
Corn 0.54

Buy a cheap dog food and you will be feeding your dog cheap ingredients. Cheap ingredients are less efficiently digested, there's more fecal waste production, and the dog won't be as healthy as when fed higher quality (meat-based) dog food. 
Here is the right choice to feed!

Facts on DHA rich fish oil for puppies

DID YOU KNOW????  Taken from the Healthy Pet Challenge group.
New research suggests that puppies may benefit from DHA-rich fish oil.
A group of 48 weaned Beagle puppies were divided into 3 groups at 8 weeks of age. Each group received a diet that was low in fish oil, moderate in fish oil, or high in fish oil until 52 weeks of age. During this growth period, the groups of puppies were periodically evaluated for cognitive learning, memory, psychomotor, and eye retinal function. The puppies’ immune response to rabies vaccination was also evaluated.
Elaborate maze, object discrimination and displacement, visual contrast discrimination, and landmark discrimination protocols were administered to the puppies at various ages and stages of neurological development. These testing protocols measure learning function of the brain. A memory test protocol was performed by all of the puppies between 33 and 44 weeks of age. Psychomotor skills were evaluated at 3, 6 and 12 months of age by timing the ability to navigate an obstacle filled maze.
Electroretinography examinations were performed on the puppies at 4, 6 and 12 months of age to measure the visual activity of the retina of the eye. Puppies were periodically blood tested to confirm that the amounts of DHA in the blood corresponded to the levels of fish oil fed.
Findings of the Fish Oil Study
The researchers found that with the exception of sight contrast discrimination, cognitive learning did not significantly differ among the groups. Psychomotor skills did not differ with fish oil treatments. However, retinal function was significantly improved with high levels of fish oil.
Interestingly, high fish oil puppies had a much higher anti-rabies antibody in their blood 1 and 2 weeks after their vaccination. The researchers concluded that since visual contrast discrimination and retinal activity correlated with blood levels of DHA, fish oil may aid in the neurological development of puppies.
