Abstract

Cushing’s syndrome (CS) is one of the most commonly recognized endocrine disorders in dogs. To our knowledge, there is only one epidemiological study published in 1982 that evaluated the incidence of the disease. In studies on canine CS it is frequently reported an apparent predisposition for the female gender, but none of such studies can prove it because of the lack of a control population. The aim of this multicenter retrospective study was to investigate the epidemiological characteristics of CS in an Italian canine population.
