My 9 year old Shih Tzu was diagnosed with cushings a few months ago. The only real change in his
behaviour has been that he seems to stumble a lot and his legs seem to go out on him like he is on
ice and they just collapse. Has anyone else had this as a symptom of cushings?
I answered in your other post that our dog also had very weak legs. It is definately a symptom of Cushings. We would have to carry her outside on occasion, and she would walk around a little, pee, and then we would carry her back. It didn't happen all the time. Is the weak legs the only symptom your dog has?
