I am sorry that you have been waiting for a response. I recently just logged onto the site and noted that your question hasn't yet been answered. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years’ experience and would be happy to work with you if you are still needing assistance.

Can you give me a little more information about your dog? Age? Breed?

Does he seem painful or weak?

Does his Cushings seem to be controlled? Has his cortisol levels been tested recently?

Has he had a blood glucose curve?

What type of insulin are you using? Twice a day?

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
