Shadow will probably be a good one to chime in here.

I almost fostered a dog with Addison's and his vet and my vet said it was something that could be worked with and the dog would live a long, happy, healthy life as long as the medication was given on time.

Good luck to you!

I found this. http://www.addisondogs.com/FAQ/faqs.html I don't know what meds your vet will put her on but maybe this will give you an idea. I am glad she has a diagnosis and hopefully she will be feeling better soon.

That is a relief, Jenn . . . I was so afraid it was anti-freeze poisoning.
