  1. Re: Cushing's and Diabetes, what's been your experience?

    Re: Cushings takes Jasmine

    Weíre so sorry for the loss of your sweet Jasmine, especially right now during the holidays. It was so kind of you to adopt her and her companion at the time of your fatherís death. Iím guessing...
  3. Re: Cushing's and Diabetes, what's been your experience?

    Actually, Daisy’s post-ACTH level is a tiny bit higher now than it was during the first check back three months ago. And as you can see from that chart, when a full ACTH test is performed, it’s the...

    Well, after encouraging you to seek out a specialist’s guidance, I remain disappointed in the feedback that you’ve been receiving from this particular vet. It just doesn’t appear as though she has...
  5. Re: A Question on Side Effects of New Medication

    I, too, am so very sorry! After losing your baby girl earlier this year, I can only imagine how deeply you are hurting over this double loss. Thank you so much, though, for returning and letting us...

    Under these circumstances, I believe Iíd report back to your vet that Louís appetite has not returned to normal. As a result, Iíd once again request permission to stop the Vetoryl altogether, even...

    Re: Medication decision

    Hello again, and thanks for this new info. Yes, Cushpups typically have elevated levels of ALP, often even at higher levels than Doraís is right now. The levels can and do lower with treatment, but...
  9. Re: Cushing's and Diabetes, what's been your experience?

    I surely do understand the financial burden associated with all this, and how stressful it is. However, I truly think that if you can swing it, a consultation with a specialist is the best thing you...

    Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Welcome back to you and Louis! To cut to the chase, I donít think thereíd be anything wrong with discontinuing the Cushingís treatment for a month or so, or at least lowering the dose...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Yeah, I wish Gableís pre-pill level was a bit higher, too. Per Dechraís pre-pill monitoring guidelines, you can dip down to 1.45. But given Gableís history of the surprising crash, I think Iíd...

    Well, Thanksgiving is now behind us. We ended up staying home after all, as the Tennessee folks were hit by the flu. So I ended up having to face what I had wanted to avoid — the empty spot at my...
