Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
How would you diagnose #2? lower the dose and see if the blood sugar is lower?
I might have already asked this...sorry if I did and missed your reply...VERY stressed out over this. :S My dog has Cushing's which probably led to diabetes. Vet wanted to get blood sugar under control before starting his Cushings meds... But Im wondering if his blood sugar is not responding very well bc he still has all that cortisol etc from the Cushings. Is that possible? I think he was going to have him start the Cushings med soon anyway since we have some data... and Id love to see him start looking more like himself... How much does stress really affect a reading? About the only time I see him shaking/stressed is at the vet and when Im trying to poke his ear for a blood sample here at home...
What percentage of the time would you say Cushing's along with diabetes is manageable?
