Our vet says that our dog does not have Cushings

Our vet says that our dog does not have Cushings, may have adrenal tumor in the sense that this is not eliminated, but this is very rare in dogs – feels as if it is looking for needle in haystack to do further tests. Continuation of recent heat and our other dog being euthanized may have pulled her down temporarily. Vet says they have extraordinary number of odd-case animals, possibly a consequence of having rescue cases from many different regions.
I don’t agree…I don’t think adrenal tumors are so rare in dog and from what I understand in dogs who have Cushings disease, 85% have pituitary tumors and 15% have adrenal tumors. Among the adrenal tumors, 50% are benign and 50% are malignant. Removal of an adrenal tumor may provide a cure for the dog’s Cushings. This is in all the books. What do you think?????????
