|Madde, that is the problem I also had with the Drs. Unless I went through all the testing they wouldn't put me on meds for Cushings but by the time my Dr got me, she "knew" that was what I had but I was so advanced she said that the meds that I would have to take would be cost prohibitive and she said I was to advanced for them to work. My liver totally shut down by then. It would be wonderful if the Vets would make these tests affordable. It is a disgrace to allow us to suffer so. Some would say that our health has taken a back seat to the money. I am so sorry that you are having to go through what you are and there really isn't anything your mommy can do but keep you comfortable and love you. Some day we can only hope that there will be a cure but again, the cure will cost a human their lives. If they had a cure when I was alive, mama would give her life to save me just as your mama would for you. Tell your mama that our mama is here for her even just to vent if she wants to. Sometimes it helps to know someone who went through Cushings and the side affects it attacks. Like the heart, liver, Diabetes. Madde, you and your mama have a strong support group to lean on.
Our heart goes out to you and your mama. We can only pray that the tests and the treatment will come down in price so we can get the help we need. New treatments come along all the time. This is a good place to find out what they are.
You can see by my picture how much weight I had gained. I got up to 39 pounds. Now that is a lot for any small breed pup.
Love and Prayers to you sweetheart
