We have two dogs that can't make it through the night unless we cut off their water supply after 6:30 p.m. The other six have free access to the water but these two have been trained not go to the bowls once they've had their after-dinner drink. They do just fine all night without free access and aren't even particularly thirsty when they get up in the morning (at least, they don't make a beeline for the water bowls ).
I have never heard of Cushings..not to say the vet has not ruled it out. It is difficult since I speak limited French and for medical treatments for myself and my pets are in english. Sometimes the translation is off. I will have to look into this.
