Pheochromocytomas (Adrenal Gland Tumor)
- Last updated on January 24, 2012
An Adrenal Gland Tumor may be a result in symptoms of adrenal fatigue in dogs. It is caused by the overproduction of hormones. The adrenal gland consists of two parts: the medulla and the cortex. This type of tumor is located on the adrenal medulla. A benign tumor, one that is not cancerous, is called an adenoma and can still cause an overproduction of hormones.

The cancer needs to be surgically removed and controlled with the use of a medication called mitotane.
There is a homeopathic remedy called PetAlive Adrenal Super-Boost to temporarily relieve adrenal fatigue and supports adrenal gland functioning.
