If the results show signs of Cushing's, your vet will follow up with hormone test , such as ACTH stimulation test which measures how well the adrenal glands work in response to the hormone ACTH. Low dose dexamethasone suppression (LDDS) test looks at how your dog’s body works with a man-made version of cortisol. If it is likely that your dog could have Cushing’s, your vet may conduct an an ultrasound of your dogs belly. This will help her see if there’s a tumor on the adrenal glands and will affect the kind of treatment he needs.
Thank you so much for this mange formula. I believed my dog to have mange but could not afford the vet visits and medication so I had been looking on the internet for a possible solution. It seemed like such a scary problem and she was scratching so much, loosing hair, could not sleep and lost has worked and has worked so well! My dogs hair has grown back and she is not scratching all the time. She is so much happier and has put some weight back on. She is back to being happy and healthy and we are happy and appreciative too. Give this a try!
