Plechner's Syndrome/Cortisol/Estrogen 



By Alfred J. Plechner, D.V.M.

You need to consider any chronic disease that continues to occur in your dog as a possible hormone antibody imbalance.

A red line on the gums where the enamel joins the gum, called a gingival flare, is a definite indication. This does not occur as often in dogs as it does in cats.

Any chronic disease may indicate this imbalance.

Chronic parasites, ear mites, skin problems, food sensitivities, idiopathic epilepsy, auto-immunity and cancer all relate to this endocrine immune imbalance referred to as Plechner’s Syndrome.
