I have a 12 year old miniature dachshund who has had

Customer Question
Cushing’s for about 1 1/2...
I have a 12 year old miniature dachshund who has had Cushing’s for about 1 1/2 years. He was on medication but we had to take him off of it because it made him listless and ill . He has lumps all over his body that our Banfield vet told us were fatty deposits. He paces all of the time in the kitchen. Also, he has never had strong potty training habits, but he has been soiling the house more frequently. We had to put papers down to deal with it. His urine is dark and he has frequent stools. Also, he won’t walk past our cat and cries until we can come get him. We have doggy stairs to help him get on the bed, and he fell off of them the other night. Otherwise, he seems alert and barks like usual when someone comes to the house or even steps on our lawn. He also still enjoys his bones. I am trying to figure out if he is suffering and what to do about it. Do you have suggestions? Thanks!
