  1. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Did you get the lab results as to what is normal for the post? If not, I would ask for it. I wish all labs used the same standard. It just makes us cush parents more confused and stressed.
  2. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    I was also curious on what your dogs diet is? I am just starting to try this:

  3. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    I'm not licensed or a pro, but the post seems really high for sure. Pookie's post only doubled, which my vet said didn't mean she had Cushing's. Your post is over 6 times, which seems like alot. ...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    Hi Marianne,

    Thank you for your feedback. My vet also suggest that if it were her dog, she wouldn't treat, but she said it was up to me. I am just worried about not treating and encountering...

    Just got a call from my vet and said her base cortisol level is now under the normal range at 1.7. Pookie was given a trazadone the day her blood was drawn. I don't know if Trazadone could be the...

  7. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Pookie is in a good place right now and her only clinical sign is her hair loss all along her back, which includes plenty of black pigmentation changes. The only reason I'm going to treat is to try...
  8. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    I'm so sorry she is intolerent to it. I think they make a generic to it which you may want to ask about. Also, I'm going to start Vetoryl with Pookie next week and I hope it helps. You can try the...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    I thought kibble was bad, because it's not fresh. I could be wrong. Do you think it's ok for Cushing's dogs to eat kibble?
  11. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    What is her blood pressure reading? Also, what are you doing about the elevated alk phosphatase? Is her liver and gallbladder ok?
  12. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Why is she on an antibiotic? Is it because of her stools? If her stools were fine before the Vetoryl, I would think the Vetoryl could cause it and maybe diet and probiotics would be better. I know...
  13. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    I'm sorry to hear about your dog. I have not started on the Vetoryl yet and may not. Can you ask the vet about a lower dose? Also, my little Pookie is eating again, but her hair has gotten worse...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    Just an update. Pookie is eating kibble again after a month. Not sure what to make of this, but kibble is not good for her Cushing's, but this isn't her main dish in the day, just a snack that's...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    Pookie is doing pretty good given the circumstances and her age. Since I'm still waiting on the Thyroid test and my vet doesn't know yet if we should start the Trilostane, I started adding back the...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    I'm still waiting on her Thyroid test to come back, which was over a week ago. Given the immune suppression of cortisol in our dogs, I'm supplementing Pookie with Vit C twice a day. Since Cushing's...

    I hope the meds work for your baby, because I may have to start Pookie on them. I'm still waiting on her Thyroid test to come back, which was over a week ago. Given the immune suppression of...
  18. Re: Gastrointestinal issues with vetoryl

    Did you try the Pepcid and Elm Bark as suggested before? I'm still waiting to here back on Pookie's thyroid. It has been over a week and now her hair/skin is peeling away from the middle of her...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm just concerned that an untreated dog with Cushing's is more prone to all sorts of problems, which can be fatal. I'm also concerned with treatment, because that...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    Can someone clarify what these numbers mean, or if Trilostane should be started? Here are Pookie's numbers for her Cushing's tests and dates:

    913.18 - BAAH
    Dexamethasone Suppression Test-...

  22. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Have you tried Adrenal Harmony? I used this with Pookie for 6 months, but have stopped, because she got sick and her kidney values were high. Not sure if this caused it, but thought you could think...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    Before this past month, I was using Adrenal Harmony, Melatonin, HMR Lignans, Ginkgo Biloba, and some Tumeric. Also, before Pookie crashed, she had 2 doses of 4 marvels, because I heard that might be...
  24. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    My little rascals are doing pretty good. Peaches is now 16, and if Pookie makes it to January, she will be 16 as well. It's hard to see my babies get old, but I'm doing everything I can to take...
  25. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    I would ask the vet if you should start with a lower dose. I wish I had more insight to give, but I don't have any experience with this drug. I'm still waiting on Pookie's thyroid test to come back.
