My 8 year old redbone coon hound has cushings, yes, we went thru all the test.. It is in his pituitary, but didn't look enlarged. He is 95 lbs, will be 9 in Nov. Has been neutered. The symptoms are food obsessed,going thru trash, tearing open anything he might find looking for food, frequent urinating ( not too bad ) doesn't want to go on walks, doesn't wag his tail anymore, doesn't drink a lot of water. No bulging stomach, no skin infections, I think I caught it early. I didn't want to put him on the traditional medicine, they can kill your dog and all the side effects, I just cant imagine someone doing that to their dog. I started him on Ophiopogon Formula, 1 teaspoon 2 times a day. He has been on it for 2&1/2 weeks now. I have noticed a difference, he doesn't urinate as often, is less food obsessed ( he use to want to eat every 2 hours or so ) .. drinks less water, still doesn't want to walk or exercise, still no tail wagging, I do think he is less anxious. This Chinese herbal is thru a Vet. Our Vet who I took him to originally didn't do the natural meds, so she contacted the other Vet for me. My question is : should I be seeing a bigger difference ? or should I seek other natural meds that I see on the market like Supraglan ?
