Customer Question
I have a 9.5...

I have a 9.5 pound morkey who has been on vetmedin twice a day, enalapril oonce a day, furosemide and apoquel for allergies and the heart condition that he has. I suspect that he may have cushings disease my groomer thought. She has been grooming him for the past ten years. He has been licking his paws and has always been very nervous. Do the medications that I mentioned cause cushings disease? What should i do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?

Zacky

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Zacky?

He has somewhat of a pot belly, he has always been nervous, and has a heart condition . he is extremely loveable but nervous..
