  2. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    Thank you. She went to vet. Has a slight UTI, antibiotics for 14 days. It doesn't seem to be helping with the urination issues much. She has been on them for 8 days now. The pepcid has helped a...
  3. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    I appreciate your reply. It is upsetting. I have a mindset like my mom... if someone eats, they are ok.

  4. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    Have a quick question, though it is Addison's disease telated. I am having trouble getting Ginger to eat much of anything. No matter what I fix, she will eat a few bites, then act like it's awful....

    Hello! Hello! It has been so very long since I have been on here. I do apologize.. I had trouble finding the website and then I would forget about it and get busy with other things. Anyway I hope and...
  12. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    I give her her Prednisone first thing in the morning. I usually give her a few bites of food and then her pills. Sometimes she will eat right afterwards, but sometimes she won't eat until the...
  13. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

  14. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    Okay thank you. Did the betadine and warm water soaks along with the triple antibiotic help?
    Her electrolytes were checked in March and they were right where the vet said she wanted them. The...
  15. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

  18. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    So I took Ginger in to the vet last week because I was seeing signs that her electrolytes were out of balance again. She was shaking a little but mostly just drinking too much water and usually at...
  19. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    No, I think I went in the the first two weeks, once a week, But it was basically watch and see how she does. After that it was a month, then 3 months unless I see she is not doing well. I am sorry I...

    Hi Betty I am so sorry to hear about Gracie! I will pray for her and you as well.
