My GSP has been recently been through a very traumatic time! over the last 2 months. We believe it started with her being poisoned (due someone using poison to clear crows /rooks in the area with out regard for the consequences.). This led to her having a week in the vets and one not happy owner praying his stalking buddy was not going to that happy stalking ground in the sky. (she is insured but thats secondary as money is not the issue compared to one unhappy wife and daughter).
This has resulted in that she has now been diagnosed with Addisons disease. This is a heredaitry disease that effects certain breeds, but can not find anything of this breed relating to GSP's
Has anyone any experience of this disease with their working dogs. Can any one give me some indication as to what is in store for the dog over the coming years and how has it affected your dog in terms of its ability to work and lead a happy / fulfilled life.
Many thanks Monty.
