#cushingsdisease

I am my own worst enemy - I stand in my own way and self sabotage my own success.
I am also powerful, kind, compassionate and silent force to be reckoned with.
Either way, I am strong. .

Window seat. I often come home to these two napping on patrol. Macy’s in camo, but she’s there sleeping away too. #tatehercules #cushingsdisease #diabeticdog #shihpoo #macybeanwednesday #puli #immerzu

Fun times at the nature park. Found out my little girl here has Cushing's disease. But it won't slow my baby down from living life! #cushingsdisease #ilovemydog #livinglife #seniordog #seniordogsrule #seniordogsrock #muttsofinstagram #muttsofig #ilovemutts #dogsofinstagram #petsofinstagram

Cushings Disease itself is an ugly disease. The recovery isn’t quite pretty either. This was about two or three days after my Transphenoidal surgery. I was able to at least look at my phone for a little bit before having to put it down. It took me about a straight week before I could watch movies or look at my phone in their entirety without getting massive headaches. The wrap around my head caught all of the drippage from my nose. It was quite gross & what was worse was I couldn’t breathe through my nose for almost a week and a half. 6 months out, I can finally ride roller coasters again & certainly don’t have drainage coming from my nose. Oh, and sleeping in my own bed is the best feeling. .

Well, I might be smiling, but I have some troubles...got diagnosed with Cushing’s disease today. I also broke one of my big molars the other day while chewing on a bone. It split or sheared off like a big piece of an iceberg. My root was exposed and that’s no good. It hurts! But I can’t have the tooth removed until we figure out if and how I can take sedation. I also have a heart murmur thrown in the mix. So, I’m on pain meds and an antibiotic for now. I go in next week for an ultrasound so they can see what’s causing the Cushings disease. It comes from either the pituitary gland or a possible tumor on my adrenal gland. If it’s Pituitary, that’s easy to treat. Let’s hope for the best. I need good vibes from my friends. It sucks getting old. 👵🏻 😥

Is anyone managing Cushings Disease with their dog? Any info at all would be really appreciated

8💬

I have a question for all the dog owners out there: Does anyone have any experience with Cushings Disease with their dog? Coco, our almost 13 year old Docker (Cocker Spaniel/Dashhound mix) has been given this as a tentative diagnosis- pending further testing.
I am hoping there is someone out there who can help me navigate the best course of action going forward as well as give me real-life best/worst case scenarios - don’t sugarcoat!

As many of you know, I am merely the caretaker of Coco. She is actually Olivia’s dog (and the love of her life). I need to know I am making the best decisions for her and I am in unfamiliar territory!

Thanks in advance! #coco #cocothedog #cockerspaniel #dashhound #docker #senior #seniordog #cushings #cushingsdisease #cushingsdog #needadvice

Rebel has been doing fantastic! He did another Cushings test last week and everything came back great! We were having a big problem with him peeing everywhere, but he didn’t have an accident all week which is better then the once a day we were getting. I am just so happy the medication is work. Now it’s just time I worked on that bill! 😅 #rebeltherescue #cushingsdisease #adoptdontshop #pitbull #mylove #pitbulllove #pitbullmom #doggykisses #rescuedogsofinstagram #pitbullsofinstagram

I've learnt the real definition of what it means to get up everyday with one foot in front of the other despite daily obstacles.
Through months of lying in a hospital bed, the drooling hours in waiting rooms, the tiresome minutes waiting for tests and results... The excruciating years waiting for my body to heal has given me the chance to see beauty in new eyes and gain unique appreciation and respect for the human body and life itself... The human body is nothing short of an inconceivable piece of machinery with 100,000 miles in length of blood vessels, one brain, one heart, two lungs, a digestive and endocrine system that's all linked together by the vagus nerve, one of 7 trillion nerves and everything else in between. The human body can endure immeasurable pain... Yet it can recover. Bones can be broken and be put back together. A well oiled 'piece of machinery' allowing blood to flow, cells to grow and replace its self periodically in the background, keeping the body alive. But when the 'routine' malfunctions inside the body the effects can be catastrophic. The whole body can shut down and when it seems like it's the end it can be brought back to life. There is nothing more incredible than the human body.
Follow my journey on my new page @living_life_chronically where i’m sharing the good, the bad, the real, the raw, the confronting and the havoc chronic illness causes, but also the resilience and empowerment an illness has on a body, mind and soul. I hope others can find support and comfort whilst creating awareness and educating others to help them through their own journey.

#tbt This is Jack. Years ago, he came to us, by way of a SF rescue- he was dropped off by his owner at the shelter, saying he couldn’t pay his medical bills. The owner knew he was sick, and judging by Jack’s condition when we met him, had been very sick for a long while. They told us that he probably had a good 6 months left, but we committed to love the heck out of him while we could. He had advanced cushings, a thyroid condition, horrible hip problems in both back legs, an enlarged heart that caused him to pass out when he barked too much and the extraordinary talent of peeing at any moment, without noticing. We gave him 6 medications 2x a day and showered him with love (even when he bit both of us - and a few friends - bad enough to send me to the emergency room once). He was bald, leaky, crabby and he was my entire heart. I loved this little dog so damn much- hell, I still do. He gave us almost 3 years - fighting hard against all the illnesses he didn’t deserve to have. He taught me so much - If you are lucky enough to take care of a special needs dog, Do not hesitate - it is the most rewarding and beautiful experience. Little stinky Jack, I’ll see you again one day 💖 #nomorepuppymills #adoptdontshop #rescuedog #bald #cushingsdisease #specialneedsdog #myheart #iwearadiapernobigdeal #stinkyjack #saveadog #bekind #sanfrancisco
