Default Re: 13 y/o westie with cushings

Snickers had his stim test on monday. He also developed another skin infection which required antibiotics. Unfortunately my vet tells me Snickers has not responded at all to the lysodren and his numbers are still high. Our vet consulted with an internal medecine specialist and an adrenal tumor is suspected. Because he has not responded to the lyso treatment at all and due to his age I really do not think surgery is an option. I had noticed some stumbling but had attributed it to the weakness in his legs. His continuous infections and lethargy are another issue. Being a cush dog he still has a voracious appetite and drinks lots of water. Things are looking a bit dicey but will post update once I have more information.
