Default Steroid Profiles in the Diagnosis of Canine Adrenal Disorders

STEROID PROFILES IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF CANINE ADRENAL DISORDERS
Jack W. Oliver, DVM, Ph.D
Knoxville, TN

Steroid hormone profiles in dogs are indicated when hyperadrenocorticism is suspected due to typical clinical and/or biochemical signs of disease, but the usual tests of adrenal function have been normal. The profiles are effective in ruling out presence of atypical Cushing’s disease, cases of hyperestrinism and for delineating the secretory profile of adrenal tumors (functionality), which often are associated with elevated levels
of steroids other than cortisol.
