How can I best help today?
Depending on what medications have been used up to this point, it may alter the test results and, thus, spend your money needlessly to diagnose Cushing's Disease when the test may need to be repeated diagnostically. If you feel you're spending lots without results, have you talked to your vet about referring your girl to a specialist? Especially in the beginning stages of diagnostics, pets are often diagnosed and treated based on "what the bloodwork says it might be" and "what the bloodwork says it isn't". Ailments like Cushing's Disease often involve many diagnostics without straight forward answers. In some cases, it's a diagnosis of ruleouts and it can certainly be frustrating for the owner.
