This is a rare disease that can more often, but not exclusively affect, young to middle aged female dogs.  This occurs when the adrenal gland does not produce enough mineralcorticoid or glucocorticoid hormones, critical in normal functioning of the body.  The disease can go in cycles, making it difficult to diagnose.  It can also present in an acute form, called Addison’s Crisis that can lead to the dog’s death.
