Possible cushings

I have a 7 year old female beagle.  She has been experiencing severe bloating - to the point she looks pregnant.  She has gained almost 5 lbs in a year, but the weight is all in her belly.  She urinates often and drinks a lot of water.  She has become extremely food obsessed.  Her skin has suddenly become dry and flaky.  Additionally, she just developed impacted and infected anal glands.  The vet said she looks like a dog that has Cushings Disease and ran a blood panel.  My question is:  Has anyone had a dog develop Cushings without any hair loss?  I read that is a main symptom, but Daisy doesn't have any.
