Hi everyone and thank you Dr Finch. My Boston who is my “service-dog” and 9 years old has Cushings and I am worried there is pain involved with this disease. I have not started her on any meds yet because her Vet said it would eventually kill off her adrenaline glands and then ultimately cause her death. I feel like I am doing the wrong things with Bojangles in that I have not been treating the disease but rather putting up with her symptoms and I do not want her to suffer. She has “insanity-anxiety” attacks whenever there is food around. We change her water bowl zillions of times a day. I sometimes get so frustrated that I lose my patience with her and I certainly do not like getting frustrated. I feel like my best friend in the whole world is sick and I can’t fix it. We use to be very close and now for her comfort she is in my husbands lap most of the time which is her only solace. Dr Finch what should I do?
I sometimes find her in the middle of the night on the cold floor and she will be icy to touch. The other hard thing is the belly weight has made her breathing tube squashed so it creates excessive mucous and she hacks constantly. We were told to treat this disorder with childrens benadryl.
Any advice would be be helpful. The vets are so expensive around here but I want her helped. Can you tell me if she is in pain?
There are various problems which may affect the eye including: corneal ulceration, foreign bodies, infections, structural problems (lens luxation etc…), among other problems. Generally, if an ulcer is suspected, fluorescein eye test is performed; glaucoma, tonometry; foreign bodies, visual examination; other problems examination with an ophthalmoscope; and in some cases, ultrasound of the eye. If all the usual suspects have been ruled out, a visit to an Ophthalmologist would be best; if you are looking to flush the eye, you can use lukewarm saline and run it over the eye not into it.
