Stomach Problems?!

Hello,
Augie is a 7 yr old pug & for the past week has just not been 'himself'. It started with him being very weak, having diarrhea, & loss of appitite. He has visited the vet two times in the previous week. He is taking a pepsid AC medicine & he had blood work done. His blood showed high potassium levels & low sodium levels & the vet suggested he had Addison's disease.

Since these visits, Augie has been happier & has more energy at times than he did. However, he does get excited for food but after a few bites he sits down & refuses to eat. He normally gets very excited to eat & finishes his meal in about 3 minutes.

Has anyone heard of these syptoms before & have any idea what this could be? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

:sorry: to hear your pup isn't well. If you use the search function here (blue bar at the top) you can pull up previous posts about Addison's and Cushing's. This is a website that was noted in one of those posts: www.groups.yahoo.com/subscribe.cgi/k9Addisons
