Sampson
Name: ~Sampson~

Breed: Standard Poodle

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 3 years old


Comments: Sampson is 7 years old. He was diagnosed with AD at approx. age 3 1/2, butlater, we realized that he had been showing signsfor some months. We were fortunate with his diagnosis.After having our (2) regular Vets tell us they were not sure what was wrong with him, we took him to a Veterinary specialty hospital wherewe found a wonderful Doctor with extensive experience with small animal endocrinology. He was very familiar with AD. Luckily Sam did not have a life threatening crash, nor many invasive tests before we were able to start him on medication


Beau
Name: ~Beau~

Breed: Standard Poodle

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 9 months old


Comments: Beau-Dascious is 3 years old, but began exhibiting symptoms of AD at around the age of 6 months. We were very quick to get Beau up the Veterinary Teaching Hospital near us. There, we received the "good" news that we had another AD dog. Unlike his "Brother", Sampson, Beau is an Atypical Addisonian, and takes glucocorticoid medication only. This situation could change and we monitorcarefully. Beauis also hypothyroid, which we treat with daily medication. Both dogs are silly, affectionate clowns, who enjoy lots of time out of doors and torturing one another.
