My 12 yr. old lab has be diagnosed with Cushings. I am leaning towards not treating her for a variety of reasons. Will she be in pain? I have read many articles, but none seem to mention if she will be in pain. It seems that most older dogs are put down early due to incontinence, but no mention of if they are in pain. Has anyone been through this? Thanks. L
I recommend you consider joining the K9KidneyDiet yahoo group, they have LOADS of information on Cushing, can recommend diet issues, medical testing, etc. They are a vast wealth of knowledge. I have a 5.5 yr old Chinese Crested Powderpuff who was recently diagnosed with renal issues and I absolutely would have been lost without their guidance.
Some people are like Slinkies..Not really good for anything...but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs
