Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear of your dog's recent illness and understand it must have been a shock for you.
When was the diagnosis made?
When did she start medication?
Does she seem lethargic or anti social?
Without further information it is very difficult for me to provide the best advice but I will certainly try.
Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.
Cushing's disease can normally be well managed once the medication has reached the correct levels.
Initially, this can take a few weeks.
This is why your vet likely wants you to bring your dog for regular checks and to have routine blood tests.
I understand how awful it is to see our pets unwell but hopefully she starts to turn a corner very soon.
If she is not responding to the medicine, even when on the right dose, we'll need to rule out any other underlying medical issues.
I do hope this helps and please let me know if there is anything else.
