  1. Sticky: Re: Reunion!! — 10th Anniversary Celebration for k9cushings.com

    Oh Shelba, I’m so glad you stopped by and bumped up this thread! Maybe some other alums may see it and check back in with us again, too. So many experiences and memories have been shared throughout...
  2. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Wow, that’s great news about the improvement in Mia’s symptoms, and especially the CC! Hooray!!!!

    That’s indeed so frustrating that they lost the cortisol tube, but it sounds as though you guys...

    Re: Suni

    Bingo! At least some of Suni’s problems could indeed be the result of the longterm dexamethasone, I think including elevated ALP:

  4. Re: Adrenal Dependent Cushings with secondary Diabetes: Squeaker needs a specialist!!

    Hello and welcome to you and little Squeaker, although I’m surely sorry for all the challenges you’re confronting! It looks as though he’s receiving very specialized care and monitoring, though, so...

    Re: Suni

    OK, here I am back again :-). Once again, I’m so sorry that little Suni is struggling at all right now, but let’s go ahead and leap right into the Cushing’s question. After my years on the forum,...

    Re: Suni

    Shelba, YAY, you made it back again today! I don’t know what’s been going wacky with your log-in, but I’m very grateful that you’re here again now.

    I’ll come back later on to add my thoughts...

    Re: Vitamins for dogs?

    Here’s a belated welcome from me! I’m sorry I haven’t have the chance to write to you earlier, but I’m so glad to hear that your girl seems to be doing better on the reduced dose of trilostane. ...

    Thanks so much for your well wishes, and we’ll be watching for your update on little Suni. I’m so sorry to hear that she may be having some problems,...
  10. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    Oh Colleen, you’re already being a help to our family. The feelings you are writing about are shared by many others, I’m sure — folks who haven’t been able, or felt able, to write about them on...

    Re: We Honor Mother's Day

    I just wanted to repeat my well wishes to all our K9C moms this weekend, especially those who have suffered losses and separations during this past, most difficult, year. Hopefully there have...
  12. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    Colleen, my heart goes out to you as this Mother’s Day weekend dawns. I know you’d give anything to have your furbaby in your arms once again. It must be so, so hard for your arms to be empty,...

    Re: Surgery Scheduled

    That’s wonderful news that the tumor was benign!! And you’re exactly right that it’s so lucky that it was discovered and removed at this stage. I’ve had two different friends now who have lost...
  14. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    For me, I think it was partly because I so desperately wanted to change the outcome, at least in my head even though it was impossible in reality. “If only I’d done this (or that), maybe he’d still...
  15. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Hello again! I’ve just now heard back from Glynda, our Administrator who is also active on the CC Facebook group. Here are some suggestions that she wanted to pass on to you. In the event you...

    Re: Surgery Scheduled

    I'm sooooo relieved to hear that the surgery is safely behind you, and that you decided to have it done at the specialty hospital, too! I know that you still have the worry over the pathology...
  17. Re: My dog has had Cushings for over a year...high dosage...would love information!

    Hi Jennifer! Yep, those ACTH results look good so I wouldn’t be changing the medication, either ;-). Good job.

    As far as the fatty lumps, or “lipomas,” all my Labs have developed them as they...
  18. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    Joan, thank you from the bottom of my own heart for your reply to Colleen. After all these years, I still carry guilt for times when I was impatient with my Barkis, too, even after I *knew* he was...
  19. Re: My dog has had Cushings for over a year...high dosage...would love information!

    Welcome back, Jennifer! So good to hear from you again, and we’re anxiously awaiting Jet’s test results right alongside you ;-). At this point, how is he doing in terms of symptom control?

  20. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    You posted the pictures exactly correctly. In terms of antibiotics, I think there’s some thought that minocycline may have particular value in treating CC. Don’t know whether that’s available you...
  21. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Oh, poor little Mia and poor you guys! I’m no expert, but those pictures do look pretty classic for CC to me. I’m going to send a message to one of our other administrators who is very active on...
  22. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Many thanks to Laura for her suggestions! Also, it occurs to me to mention that many people have warned that even after effective treatment has been started, CC often tends to look worse before it...
  23. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Welcome back, and I’m so glad to hear that Mia is showing at least a bit of improvement in some areas. How about her thirst — have you seen any changes with that yet? It’s also great that you have...

    Re: Surgery Scheduled

    Oh, I’m so glad you shifted the surgery to the specialty hospital under these circumstances — I think that’s an excellent plan and I so hope that all goes well!

    Definitely do update us just as...
  25. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Absolutely, all fingers are crossed — and toes, as well!

    In your quest for medication, one thought occurs to me. You might try contacting an American Cushing’s specialist who has also served as a...
