Q. My dog had the low dex test and it is positive for Cushing. I did not have high dex test. Do you feel I should pursue further testing or treatsymptom
A. Unfortunately, there isn't a definitive test for Cushing. It is a diagnosis of exclusion and typically requires multiple tests to reach a diagnosis. If the LDDS test result is suggestive of Cushing and your dog is showing clinical signs, it wouldn't be "wrong" to have your veterinarian prescribe the appropriate medication and then gauge your dog's response. Discuss your concerns in detail with your vet or a veterinary endocrinologist.
