CANINE hypoadrenocorticism should be suspected quite commonly in practice, but only occasionally diagnosed. This reflects the non‐specific presenting signs, their tendency to wax and wane and the relatively low incidence of the condition. Moreover, as the clinical signs often respond to non‐specific therapy, the disease has a tendency to be missed. The chances of identifying a case of hypoadrenocorticism are related to the ability to maintain a high index of suspicion for the condition. This article outlines the pathophysiology associated with hypoadrenocorticism in dogs and describes an approach to diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
