My male 9 yr old lab has cushings. He suddenly lost the use of his back legs is this common in cushings and will this ever come back. He is starting to use a new medication called lysodren. This is a big problem as we have to lift him up to go to the bathroom and he weighs over 90lbs. DOes anyone have any insight if this medication will help him or if it will make it worse

I have no experience with Cushings, but I do know that your vet should be able to answer these questions for you. Have you taken him in for a check up since he lost the use of his legs? I hope you are able to find some answers. I found this website on cushings disease in dogs
