Buffy has been diagnosed with CUSHINGS , she is 7 years old which is uncommon for young dogs to get. Usually dogs are older. Cotons aren’t suppose to have many health issues. Does anyone else have a coton with cushings?

Coton with cushings and blindness NEW
by: Shealy

My Coton was 11 1/2 when diagnosed with cushings. He was a happy dog but suddenly, over night, went blind - SARDS. He also had a heart murmur and diabetes. He passed away a couple days ago, so I’m still reeling. He was the best dog ever and so happy.

Yes, my Coton was also diagnosed with Cushings at a fairly young age. He was on Vetoryl for a long time. Eventually he no longer needed it, much to our surprise.

Dogs can manage just fine with Cushings, but of course you have to do periodic ATCH testing to be sure that they are not heading toward Addisons. That's important, but you know that already, of course!

Cushings NEW
by: Dale

Thanks Anne. Buffy is overweight at 24 pounds and is on 5mg morning and 5 mg at night. Her levels are slowly coming down but still had thirst and panting. Hope your baby is well. Thank you for responding.

cushings NEW
by: anne

our coton was diagnosed with Cushings over 1 year ago- she had all the symptoms - voraciously hungry and thirsty at all times, patches of hair gone, skin wounds appearing - distended belly ..... it was terrible BUT she began taking Vetoryl ( 10 MG ) and slowly got better-to the point where she was back!
( they say dogs can live a long time with Cushings )
good luck!
