Dear Alisabaum, Thankyou so much for giving me hope. Barney my Basset is 12 and may have Cushings. We have had xrays, ultrasound scans, blood tests and an ACDH test which came back inconclusive for Cushings. We go for another test next month. Barney only has one of the symptoms for Cushings, excessive thirst so I am hoping it may not prove to be Cushings. At least I know from your post that there is medication.
