My dog has Cushing's disease and did fine on Vetoyrl

Customer Question
for about five weeks....
My dog has Cushing's disease and did fine on Vetoyrl for about five weeks. Then she appeared very hyper and ate lots more than normal. Then all of a sudden I noticed her ears so very red, then her body until it looked like it would bleed. I continued the vetoyrl for another week with her getting worse every day. She took an antihistamine that makes her sleep and not scratch. What I want to know is could her skin condition be from the Vetoyrl? I know this is not true usually but especially in very allergic sensitive dogs how often does it occur.

Verified
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
While considered very rare, there are a few reports that Vetoryl can cause skin changes. These have been noted to include pigment changes and rashes. Therefore, if she is a very skin sensitive dog, we cannot rule out the Vetoryl as a cause for her signs.
Just to note, the only way to see if it our culprit would be to discontinue the drug for a period of a month or two to see if her signs settled. Furthermore, I would say that if you are not keen to continue this treatment (which is fair & one can choose to keep them comfortable until the signs of the Cushing's causes bother), then perhaps weaning her off the medication would be the best option for Panda in this situation.
Please take care,
Dr. B.
