One of the three dogs that I have to rehome probably has Cushings. She has lost ten pounds and when I took her for her rabies and distemper yesterday the vet tech brought it up (her fur is so heavy I didn't notice) and she had a blood test run. Her hormones and liver had some abnormalities and vet came in and told me it is likely Cushings, but we need to do another test. He said we could wait two weeks because she is eating and acting fine. I was devastated. I called the adoption center/sanctuary to tell them and the lead volunteer is a vet. She was cheerful and said she knows how to treat that...not to worry...that she will still probably get adopted or they'd care for her. But I still felt terrible. I can't keep her (see my other thread). This particular furbaby is a great human lover, but attacks any animal except her pack and sometimes even her pack. Plus she is starting to pee and poop on the floor like the other dogs. I wonder if that is part of cushings because this particular dog never had accidents before. Has anybody ever had a dog with Cushings and how did it work out? And what else could it be? He said Cushings or some hormonal problem. I love my baby, even though I can't keep her. I feel very sick about this. Yesterday, as I waited with her for the blood test results, I was seriously afraid I would be told to put her down. I was ready to call my hub and daughter to come and hold her with me and I was crying while I hugged her. She licked my face, like she always does.
