Hello, I am sorry to hear your dog has Cushing's disease. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. You can see if you can save money getting the generic form, trilostane, from a compounding pharmacy like Roadrunner: You will need a prescription from your veterinarian if this option can save you money. The other drug to treat Cushings's is Lysodren, but it may be just as expensive and has more side effects. Cushex drops, available online, can help with Cushing's symptoms, but is not a substitute for Vetoryl. Let me know if this is helpful and what else I can help with or answer.
