Q. My dog has Cushing and her pee is green!! We are treating her for the Cushing. When should think about putting her down. She seems so depressed!

Answered By
DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM

A. Hi,

green pee may be a sign of a urinary tract infection. She would need antibiotics for that. Try to catch a fresh sample of pee with a soup ladle while taking her out to pee, and take that sample in to your veterinarian right away for a urinalysis. Unfortunately dogs with Cushing's syndrome seldom survive longer than 2 years from the time of being diagnosed.. So depending on how long she has been diagnosed she may be that far along.
