Im glad it helped. Nina sounds so similar to Mali. As soon as you get the diagnosis things will improve. Mali has you move and metacalm for her joints too.
Good luck xx

So glad to read your response and pleased and reassured to know that your Mali has done so well over several years with Cushing's disease. My Nina is a similar age, 13 at the beginning of August, and although not been tested yet is showing some signs, excess drinking/urinating,(if I don't keep the water bowl topped up she rattles it round the kitchen!) hair loss, etc. She is well in herself, apart from stiff joints (me too!) for which she has Yumove daily. I hope to get her tested as soon as all this malarkey is over (the vet did mention the medication Vitoryl) Thanks again..

So sorry to hear this. Im sure you must form a very special bond with a dog who has gone through so much and needs such special attention. You clearly gave her the best life possible and she was able to experience the security of a doggy friend and a loving safe home with you. Its so sad saying goodbye. Sending  :bigarmhug:.
Run free with your friend Maggie, dear Jessie.  :luv:

Last Tuesday i had to let my dear Jessie go.My very dear puppy farm dog who spent 7 terrible years there.
Ihave never seen such a frightened dog.She wouldn't go near anyone except her friend Maggie who also came from the same place .
Any one coming to the house sent her into a fright and she would circle all the time .Poor Jessie had a few health issues over the time
pancreatitis auto immune problems and lung worm.Finally she had an on going cough getting worse all the time and a heart murmur It was all to much for her
and i had to make that awful decision.So many tears shed as i held her.
Last December i got another puppy farm boy Murray.He is 8 not so frightened and very loving.So we both remember a very special girl Jessie who i know is with Maggie and my other dogs
also with Fraser my late husband.

Ive not been on here for ages so Ive only just seen your post. My dog, Mali has Cushings, shes had it for a few years now and she copes really well with it. Mali has never been an unwell dog so it was shocking to see her so distressed when she was peeing indoors involuntarily. Shed never done that since she was ten weeks old so I knew something was up.

My vet tested and diagnosed Cushings and ever since, she has been taking one vetoryl tablet a day. Every now and then she has the blood tests but they always come back normal. It must be at least 4 years now since she was diagnosed and youd never know she had any issues.

I was reassured by someone here who had previously had a dog with Cushings and weve never looked back. Mali will be 13 this summer and is still mistaken for a puppy when we are out.
