My name is Laurel and I have an 8 yr old Shih Tzu named Sadie. She's just been diagnosed with Cushings disease. I've spoken to the vet and gone to many websites on Cushings, but I'm not getting the whole picture. Oh, they tell me what it is, how it's diagnosed, and how it's treated. You know, the medical stuff.
What I'm really looking for are people who have had experience living with an animal with Cushings. What behavioral changes will I see in her, will she be in much pain, etc. Are there any support forums out there for those who have animals with Cushings?
