We handle adrenal disease the same way, again on the advice of very good vets. While there hasn't always been hair loss (Romana's only symptom was a swollen vulva) there have always been adrenal tumors. While there are times a Tennessee Panel makes sense in each and every case the adrenal symptoms became clear and obvious and our vets haven't seen the need to order one.

All the best,
