How long can a dog live with cushings untreated?
Sometimes, untreated dogs live longer than their treated counterparts.
Most likely, the reason lies in that individual dog's genetic resiliency.
Some experts say dogs will live 2 years and some reports cite 6 years.
In fact, trying to predict life expectancy in dogs with Cushing's is a true guess.
Puppies under six months of age shouldn't stay in a crate for more than three or four hours at a time.
They can't control their bladders and bowels for that long.
The same goes for adult dogs being housetrained.
Physically, an older dog can hold it, but they don't know they're supposed to.
