They just did another insulin cuve (24 hours) and the first part was good then she shot up to 600 to 700. They don't even understand.

Squirt's Mom wrote:Hi ya'll,
I currently have a baby with Cushing's, Squirt. She was diagnosed early in '08 and is doing really well! I belong to a great group called K9Cushings and it can be found at http://www.k9cushings.com/forum/index.php. If I can help anyone with questions about Cushing's, I am more than happy to do so.
The most important thing to remember is that Cushing's does NOT mean death! It can and is handled daily by many, many moms and dads. It can be very confusing, frustrating and frightening at the beginning and I know this oh so well - I was a basket case when Squirt was first diagnosed but the more I learned the more confident I became.
So keep the faith if your vet throws the word "Cushing's" at you! If they tell you something like the life expectancy is only 2 years, LAUGH in their face - I know of several babies who have lived 10+ yrs with proper treatment. There is a world of hope!
