Does anyone have experience with cushings?
Grace slipped on the ice last week. Scratched her stomach, I cleaned it and thought nothing more until suddenly monday it looked worse. Cleaned it again, and it started looking very different and bumpy. Called our vet as it concerned me, and she also started vomiting. I thought maybe infection. She also has a UTI end of nov, and she was once again peeing in the house so i wanted her checked for that.
Vet took one look at her tummy and said -Calcinosis Cutis. She said its almost 100% of the time found in cushings dogs.... Grace does NOT look like a cushings dog, no bloated stomach, no increased thirst, no sunken head, not lethargic, no muscle weakness. She IS urinating in house, and IS acting hungry all the time. Her only two classic signs. Negative for other signs but the CC.
Her bloodwork came back perfect. Her urine was fine, but the cortisol test is a send out ill have those results tomorrow. She has a biopsy today on the CC to confirm its diagnosis.
Should her urine come back high we will begin the testing next week to see which type she has.
Can anyone offer any additional advice? Can I help anything with diet changes? We are currently using 4-Health Grain Free from tractor supply. Was thinking maybe taking the raw plunge?
Has anyone seen CC without cushings? Vet said there is a very very very very small chance but almost everytime a dog has cc its cushings so I am not hopeful.
