Addison's Disease

Our 6 yr old rescued "Basenji mix", Curly Sue, was recently and surprisingly diagnosed with Addison's Disease. We have it under control now, but she takes prednisone every day and a shot every 3 weeks. Is this known in Basenjis or just a fluke?

There are some indications of hereditary factor,s but all dogs, including mixes, can have it. Good luck on Curly Sue staying healthy and having it found early.

This is a good support and info site:
