My Girlfriend's bichon was having problems recently. Weight gain, excessive thirst, large appetite.
Anyway she brought her dog to the vet today because she thought it might have been diabetes. The dog is 8 years old now.
The vet ruled out diabetes but said the symptoms point towards cushings disease.
Has anyone else's dog had this and if so, how did you cope. Hoping to hear an optimistic story because I'm trying to reassure her that everything will be okay.
I read up on some info on the web. It mentioned something about a tumour, which is quite scary to read about
