Hi, I have a 13-year old golden boy named Lucky. We're going through all the usual senior issues with arthritis, skin infections, etc. Most recently, my vet told me that she thinks he may have Cushing's, mainly because he seems to be panting a lot. He's already on metacam (arthritis), gabopentin (pain), levothyroxin (thyroid) and tramadol (pain), along with glucosamine and other supplements, and the vet just started him on adequan injections. The thought of subjecting him to more tests and more medicine is not attractive to me, and in reading about Cushing's there seems to be a lot of issues with the treatment - seems to take a lot to figure out right dose, etc., and side effects of medicine include nausea, listlessness and so on. Has anyone of the forum dealt with this, and do you have any advice?
