Default Checking in for April 2017

"Checking in" is a topic that we start on the first of each month. We suspect that we have a good number of members who read the messages regularly but who don't post very often. Maybe that's because their dogs are doing well, or they don't have a Cushing's dog anymore, or they haven't got any questions to ask, or maybe they don't feel very comfortable about posting answers to other members' questions. It's perfectly understandable and acceptable for folks to only post once in a while, but when we don't hear from people, many of us find ourselves wondering what those folks have been up to recently and how their dogs are doing.

It's always preferable to post updates about your Cushing's dog in your own thread/topic (especially if you want feedback/replies from other members) but you can also post a quick reply here if you just want to say hi and let everyone know how you are doing in general.

We'd love to hear from you!

I am unsure as to where to post this information but it may be helpful to some who are part of the K9 family. Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana plans to launch a program to surgically remove pituitary macroadenomas within the next year. Dr. Tim Bentley is the neurosurgeon and he has been engaged in clinical trials related to other brain tumors. Also, you may be able to secure an MRI at reduced cost if your pup is accepted into their MRI clinical trial. If interested, go to Purdue's small animal veterinary clinic and then search for clinical trials. Dr. Catherine Scott-Moncrieff is their chief endocrinologist and she is superb.

Carol, why don't you put that on the Everything Else forum as well as the thread for macroadenomas.

Just start a new thread here -
