I have a 9 month old Jack Russel/Poodle mix She has been admitted to the hospital 3 times since I've had her. I have had her since she was 8 weeks old. Her symptoms were vommitting, lethargy, dehydration. I am sad to say that she is in the hospital now and they suspect addisons disease. My question is......... Does anyone know what the cost is for the blood test they have to take, and how much is treatment if her diagnosis confirms Addisons. We are so worried sick, We lost our 11 yr old Golden in Aug of this year, and now are facing this. Also they said that her kidneys were slightly elevated, is this common with Addisons disease. Thanks, Jewels9935 :sick:
