Default Prayers for Gipsy?

Gipsy is not doing too well. She's been diagnosed with couching and is just going downhill fast.
Her liver is a wreck - shes drinking about 5-6 waterbowls a day, resulting her need to go outside alot - and she's starting to have accidents in the house - and not even noticing. Her fur is all frizzy - and she's blond because she hasn't changed her fur in about a year now.
She's pretty wobbely all over, though that may be from old age. Her ears aren't as alert as they used to be - and she doesn't see everything.
My biggest fear is loosing her - without being able to say good-bye. She's been one of my constants. My childhood dog, the one who was there when I was afraid of the dark and snuck into my bed - and the one friend I had when we moved back to Germany and I didn't know anyone.
Seems like it was just yesterday we brought that little ball of fur home - not 13 years ago.

Is she being treated for the Cushing's? We've seen really good results in dogs using Trilostane.

We decided against treatment, due to her arthritis in her hips
She is getting "cushing herbs" that are helping ALOT (Her fur hast gotten softer again, and some bald spots have gotten their fur back).
We are keeping her as comfortable as possible, and she does seem happy. Though its hard hearing for people "Oh! She's so SKINNY!" You need to feed her more. Her hip bones and backbones are very visible - but thats due to old age and not her being too skinny (Her tummy just dropped down).
