posted by Jim Murphy

BULL DOG FATCushing’s disease is  a chronically  debilitating hormone imbalance that can affect many species, humans included. This disease results   from excessive cortisol in the bloodstream. The symptoms are a result from a long term over-exposure to this hormone.  In Dogs, there are many signs to look for, The signs come on slowly and because of it’s gradual onset, the symptoms are written off as part of the aging process.  Here are some symtoms that you should be aware of and report to your veterinarian.

  • Drinking excessively
  • Urinating excessively
  • Incontinence
  • Muscle weakness
  • Skin conditions and hair loss

You’ll first notice that the water bowl must be filled more frequently than in the past. Some dogs can’t hold their bladder in the night and start crying to go outside.

All of these symptoms should be reported to your vet right away and he will give your dog the proper exam and recommend the best treatment.

Remember, your pets count!
