2 comments May 29, 2023by Denise Lessard

Have you ever felt helpless, desperate, and powerless when it comes to helping your dog face a difficult health issue? This is often the case with Cushing’s Syndrome or Cushing's Disease. If it's your first time hearing about this problem, then you've come to the right place.

 I've put together this simple-to-follow blog post to get you in on the important things to keep in mind when it comes to this severe illness. Besides walking you through the clinical signs to keep in mind, I will also give you the lowdown on how to treat Cushing's Disease in just a few moments.




A Quick Look at Treating Cushing's Disease

The treatments vary since there are different causes for this disease. Unfortunately in most cases, the treatment options usually resort to medication treatments. Your vet will be able to pinpoint which option would be right for your dog so he can be successfully treated.

A word of caution, though. The initial "induction period" (about 1 week) will usually have serious side effects on your dog. Sometimes, even with the medication, Cushing’s symptoms return later on in their life, so be prepared.

Surgery is the most common treatment if a tumor is involved. If surgery is not possible, then medication is usually given to reduce the cortisol released by the tumor. If we're being honest, there are no guarantees even with surgery.

This is why being proactive with even the slightest signs of Cushing's disease in dogs is a must for every pet parent.
