Abstract

Naturally occurring hyperadrenocorticism (Cushing's syndrome) is extremely common in dogs, with an incidence far greater than that in humans. The incidence of the syndrome in cats, much less frequently diagnosed than in dogs, probably is similar to that in humans. Many features of canine hyperadrenocorticism are strikingly similar to those in humans; however, several alterations in dogs are unique and not observed in other species. Clinical features and hospital testing abnormalities are reviewed in this article.
