  4. Re: My 13 Year Old Dog - New Diagnosis Questions about Vetoryl

    Here’s a belated welcome from me, too! Kathy is being way too modest re: her own Cushing’s knowledge, and I’m really glad that she had the chance to respond to you so promptly. I can only “second”...

    Hello again, and thanks so much for all the additional info you’ve been giving us. Regarding the ACTH results, for the benefit of some of our other readers, I’m converting Snoopy’s results into the...

    Re: Symptoms

    If your vet is only performing resting cortisol tests, then the blood draw should be taken first thing in the morning before the tablet — NOT 3-4 hours afterward. Here is another link that may make...

    Re: Symptoms

    Thanks so much for the speedy reply! As far as the monitoring testing, if a full ACTH stimulation test is performed, then the recommended timeframe is indeed around 4 hours after dosing along with a...

    Re: Symptoms

    Hello and welcome to you and Bo! I’m surely sorry you’ve seen no improvement in her symptoms so far. I know how hard it must be for you to see her continuing discomfort :-(. And yes, after six...
  10. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Oh, this is great news :-)))). The one cautionary note that I’d add is that, if Louis is now getting his pill along with food whereas previously he was not, his cortisol level might well come down...

    Re: New to Cushings

    Hey Karen, we all have “those” days — we know where you’re at ;-)

    After me harping about getting a stim test done ASAP, you’ll probably be stunned to hear me suggest that if you cannot proceed...
  12. Re: Daisy: 10-year-old Pit Bull/Boxer Mix with Cushing's; questions about Vetoryl dos

    Oh, I’d forgotten about that scary episode over the winter! That was weird, for sure :-(.

    I definitely think it’s worth asking your vet about the Tylan and/or Flagyl. I don’t have any personal...
  13. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Yes, our understanding is that the pre pill cortisol check has become a much more common general monitoring approach over there in the U.K. Some vets are also using that approach now in the U.S.,...
  14. Re: Daisy: 10-year-old Pit Bull/Boxer Mix with Cushing's; questions about Vetoryl dos

    Hello, and welcome back! I’m sorry, though, about these new worries about Daisy’s kidneys. However, as far as your question re: the Vetoryl, if it was me, I’d probably not be stopping her Vetoryl...

  16. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Hello and welcome to you and Louis — we’re so glad you’ve joined us! You are correct that Vetoryl needs to be given along with food in order to be metabolized most efficiently. In conversations...

    Such a huge spirit inhabited that tiny body — it’s no wonder that the hole left behind can never be filled. I remain so sorry for your loss, Kathy, but also so grateful that you shared Buddy with...
  21. Re: My havanese pup has been diagnosed with cushings

    Good luck with the ultrasound from me, too! Also, my Cushing’s boy was one who showed improvement in his thirst/urination within just 2-3 days of starting the trilostane. So I know from personal...
