Going back to talk to the vet today, he didn't like Trippy's recent weight gain. He is 20lbs overweight (in less than a year). Thyroid test came back fine, vet seems to want to go straight into diet. Trippy gets fed Innova Evo red meats 2x a day. He gets a margarine cup full each feeding. Very limited on treats, only a treat every few days. No other food intake. Here are a list of symptoms that I put together.
Constantly drinking water
Constantly begging for food
Small patches of thinning hair/baldness
Stomach is bulging out- easily noticeable, hangs down really low looks almost distended if that's the right term
Dry crusty patches of skin on his knees
Just had a large rash on his inner thigh- cleared up with antibiotics
Lethargic- sleeps ALL the time
Alot of panting, even when he's just laying on the couch
Pooping in the house
Urinating more frequently
From what I've read these can all be symptoms of Cushing's. Any thoughts? Anyone dealt with this in a dog? Or am I just over analyzing things and reaching? He is 4-5 years old (rescue, not sure exactly how old he is), pit/lab mix.
