My son, Bentley was diagnosed with Cushings a few years back. He is a male maltipom of 13 years. I love him more than I could ever express. He has been with me through thick and thin and I can imagine my life without him.

His hair is thinning everywhere, especially on his tail and neck area. He is about 15 lbs and does have a little potbelly.

He drinks a lot of water at each sitting. We feed him Fromm reduced activity senior dry food.

He likes to chew on thin/skinny bully sticks.

His vet put him on Vetoryl (5mg capsules) years ago. Twice a day, but we only give him one a day as it's so expensive and two didn't seem to be making any difference.

I also give him 3mg of melatonin at night since I give him the Vetoryl in the morning.

He is active, still plays and is lively, but I don't feel that his Cushings is under control.

What can I do to help my boy? I just feel helpless and know he could be doing better.

Thank you!
