Is anybody familiar with Cushings Disease? I have been to three vets, they have all said different things. The vet that first mentioned it, said he could tell by the blood test results and "other symptoms her body has" He suggested a low dose dexamethasone test.

Since that exam I have been learning about it and my dog does seem to have some of the symptoms, panting, muscle loss. She does not have any of the symptoms people often notice first, increased thirst and urination, she actually has decreased thirst. Her coat is great, second vet said not Cushings because no hair loss.

Then I am told hair loss not necessary. I cant seem to get a consistent answer. I was told if she is not drinking more and urinating more, that type can't be treated. I hate to put her thru the stress of the 8 hour test just because a vet wanted to make some money on diagnostics.

Has anybody experienced Cushings, in dogs? Maybe a good link to good information. Any help or assistance will be so very much appreciated.

I can post her blood results and symptoms, but was not sure if that was allowed. Thanks.
