This is Boo who has been having treatment for Addisons disease for more than 2 years now. Addisons disease is caused by a lack of an essential steroid called aldosterone. This deficiency causes may profound problems with water and electrolyte balance and can lead to kidney problems and ultimately, if not treated properly, to early death. Boo was originally treated using a combination of tablets to supplement her lack of aldosterone but recently has switch to a monthly replacement injection.

She has coped extremely well with her treatment and is always a delight to examine and treat, despite her many blood tests and injections. The disease is well controlled and other than regular visits to the vets she has a happy and normal life !
