Q: Cushings

April 8, 2008 | By carol b. | 1 answer | Expired: 2846 days ago


Anyone here with a dog who has Cushings? My 12 year old terrier has it, I am watching her waste away. We tried meds & they just did not work. I don't think she is in pain but wasting away. I cant bare to have her put down yet. My vet says she is in no pain, what would you do?

Cushing's Disease is horrible, the good news is that there is a new treatment that seems to work very well. The problem is that you have to have your vet ask the FDA for permission for it because its a drug only found in the UK. But, please don't give up hope. Lots of dogs do fine with appropriate treatment. I would recommend to have your vet refer you to an internal medicine specialist. Its the same as you going to a specialist if you had a certain type of disease (like an oncologist if you had cancer for example)

This will give you a little bit more information:
