Heh Kelley!

I am going to make your day. Treatment of cushings is only tough when vets aren't experienced and get in over their heads.... it really isn't that bad. I am delighted your vet has forwarded results to a specialist. There are different types of cushings and they are treated differently so what you are doing right now is the best thing you can do for your dog. You want to be sure of the diagnosis before treating and you want a vet that has experience.

My dog is over 15 (schnauzer) and she has been treated using lysodren for 3 yrs now. She's a happy little thing and her only problems right now come from old age - not cushings.

So don't fret. Continue to post and ask questions. The more you know about the disease the better but there is no rush to treat. Congrats on the pregnancy!
