Therefore, the clinical features of ­secondary hypoadrenocorticism are similar to those seen in “atypical” primary hypoadrenocorticism; that is, the electrolyte imbalances do not occur. D. Hypoadrenocorticism in cats: 1. Primary hypoadrenocorticism is a rare disorder in cats; there have been fewer than 40 cases described as either case reports/series or in textbooks. The majority have been idiopathic, although two were ­secondary to neoplastic infiltration of the adrenal glands and one occurred following trauma.

Another way to decrease expense is to decrease the total dose. Some dogs do well on 1 mg/kg/month. 2 mg/kg, and the dose decreased slowly (10% at a time) as long as electrolyte concentrations remain in the reference range immediately prior to the next injection. Use of this protocol saves money; however, using a lower dose leaves less room for error on the dosing interval. It is imperative that owners wishing to use a lower dose adhere tightly to the dosing schedule. vi. The potential cost savings associated with prolonging the dose interval and/or decreasing the dose must be weighed against the expenses associated with the required monitoring following each adjustment.
