Cushings and Diabetes

Have any of you had a Maltese with Cushings and Diabetes? If so, can you share your experience? My Sugar was diagnosed a couple of months ago and the vets are having a hard time getting the medications right. I'd appreciate your input so much!!! Thanks - Martha and Sugar

The cushings effects the sugar level. I hope all works out for you.

I have heard of the those diseases but have not had any experience with them. I hope and pray the vet can get things under control.

Our CiCi was tested for Cushings but the tests came back negative. I don't know much about the disease but wish you all the best with Sugar and managing the diseases.

Hi Martha...my little one has cushings but not diabetes...it would take time for the vet to try to get both under control with the meds. What meds is Sugar on. With Cushing's it makes them feel hungry all the time. Plus my little one is prone to stones and regular dog foods contain ingredients that can aid in producing stones so I have been home cooking for him.

Here is a link/Forum that may be helpful in answering your questions.

Did they check on Sugar's thryoid? Does it look like Sugar's coat is thinning on her back? Did your vet explain what causes cushings? Let us know how Sugar is doing.
