Hi there. thanks for the question. Im sorry to hear Mickey is having some trouble. NO ...you can not treat an Addisonian crisis at home. If he has progressed to lethargy, collapse, vomiting etc, then he has major electrolyte abnormalities, that can only be treated by careful fluid resusitation. I would recommend getting him to a vet as soon as possible. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
