Milly is a 2 & ½ year old Great Dane. Milly’s owner brought her to Animal Medical Centre because she had not been eating for 3 days, hence had lost weight, was very lethargic, and was dehydrated. Due to her breed, gender, and age, Dr. Bishay ran blood tests confirming his suspicion of Addison’s Disease. Milly was then hospitalized with IV fluids to re-hydrate and to balance her electrolytes. On the third day at our hospital, she was eating, had regained some of her normal energy and was able to go home with medication. Milly came back a few times for follow up blood tests until we reached the correct dose of medicine her body needs to keep her disease under control. We are happy to report that Milly and her owner are now happy and doing well.
