Endocrinology is the branch of medicine dealing with hormonal imbalances in your companion animal’s body. Hormonal diseases can occur as a result of an excess of certain hormones, such as hyperthyroidism in cats and adrenal disease in ferrets, or as a result of a lack of hormones, such as diabetes.

Hormonal diseases can cause a multitude of clinical signs, depending on what organ is affected and whether the problem is an excess or a lack of a particular hormone. Some of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance are:

  • Skin problems, such as hair loss or recurrent infections
  • Increased drinking and urinating
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Weakness and lethargy
  • Excessive panting
