Canine hypoadrenocorticism is the clinical syndrome caused by a significant reduction in the principal biologically active mineralocorticoid, cortisol, usually in association with a significant reduction in the principal biologically active mineralocorticoid, aldosterone. This chapter looks at physiology of the adrenal cortex, primary hypoadrenocorticism and its clinical features, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.
