Cushing's Disease In Dogs

What is Cushings Disease, the symptoms, causes and treatment of Cushing's Disease In Dogs:

Cushing's Disease In Dogs

Cushing's Disease in dogs is a disorder of the adrenal glands. It typically occurs in older dogs.


Increased Thirst and Urination

Increased Appetite


Thinning Coat and Skin Problems




Cushing's Disease in dogs occurs when the adrenal glands produce too much glucocorticoid when the adrenal or pituitary glands malfunction or are over active. It is thought that changes in the aging process may be a cause, as is a tumour or a dog that may recently have had steroid drugs.

The Drummer Boy
Whilst my four legged companion sat beside me I wrote a book which tells the story of The Drummer Boy. This novel is about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.

Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty's Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.

Sadly there is no cure for Cushing's Disease in dogs but Vets are able to alleviate most symptoms as they arise. The disease progresses slowly with most dogs, with some showing little distress.

If the cause of Cushing's Disease in dogs is due to a tumour, then surgery may be necessary to excise or reduce the tumour.

Drug treatment centres around reducing the amount of glucocorticoid produced.
