Trilostane (and Lysodren) can do more harm than good if your pup doesn't really have the disease. Cushing's is typically a slow growing disease, so please take the time to be more sure of the diagnosis.

Don't feel bad...my former vet said my pup was just getting old even after the UCCR and ACTH stim test suggested further testing for Cushing's. My pup was showing signs about 1-1/2 to 2 years before being diagnosed.
