View Full Version : Feline Cushings

My cat has cushings disease. He is responding well to treatment. I was
wondering if there is anyone else out there dealing with this disease
and I wanted to know what kind of treatment you were pursuing.

I've never even heard of Cushings' in a cat. It's common enough in
horses, so if you have a small-animal vet without a lot of experience
with it, you might find a horse vet to give you some advice. The
treatments and outlook might be similar.
How do you know your cat has Cusings? In a horse, the noticeable signs
are usually a long, sometimes wavy coat that doesn't shed, and
oddly-placed fat deposits.
