Dark spots on back

My  min poodle, Hershey, was diagnosed with Cushing's a month ago.  He is on Trilostane, 8mg 2ce a day. He has developed dark spots on his back. Is this related to the Cushings? They don't seem to  itch, aren't flakey, etc.

Cushings Disease is a fairly common disease of our pets unfortunately.

I am assuming that you are describing dark spots on his skin along his back...if so, this is a normal occurrence with Cushing's disease.  The skin darkens in response to the disease and is known as hyperpigmentation.

Poodles are one breed that is predisposed to developing hyperadrenocorticism.

Good luck with him!
