    Re: My big boy Gable

    I may have to do that yet, Lori...but for now I just can't afford all that testing. He seems okay. He's eating, no more poop or vomiting in the house. He loves his cooling jacket and I think he...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    It does. I think I gave him his evening pill before the test that gave the 4.2 reading. And the last test was probably close to 12 hours after his morning dose.

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Marianne, remind me how the pre pill testing goes with twice daily dosing. I think you just do it before the morning pill, and not skip the pill the night before? That would not have made a...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    That's exactly what I thought, Marianne. When I said that it was a huge jump and that it would continue to go down, I think he got offended and said we should still do it!

    No way....I gave him...

    Well, I came home to a mess Wednesday after work...poop in the kitchen and vomit in the back room by the door. Wasn't sure who did the pooping, but Gable always throws up at the back door. He...

    Re: New to the Cushing's World

    Hi and welcome to the forum. The poor little guy! It would help if you posted the results of the testing done that confirmed Cushing's. Also any blood work, highs and lows, with the reference...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Yes Marianne, I remembered you had said that before, so I figured we would go for it.

    My son Jeremy is watching them all while we are away and I know he will be keeping a close eye on him. He's...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    The vet called after he spoke again with the specialist and the suggestion was to add an additional 5mg at night, so that he would be on 10mg in the am and then 10 at night. At first I thought we...

    Test results:

    4.2 ref range 1.0 - 5.0

    Maybe he's just a big drinker. I looked back at the first post I did here when he was 7 and it looks like I had been worried about the way he breathes...

    Still drinking and panting. He's eating fine and no stomach problems....We did the test Saturday morning and have not heard back yet.

    Since the results will be ready soon, why don't you just wait to see what they are, then you can lower it if you want to.

    There are so many "what ifs".

    Re: My big boy Gable

    My vet spoke with a specialist who suggested increasing Gable to 10mg in the morning and 5mg at night. Then doing the pre-pill test in 3 weeks. I don't think I will wait for 3 weeks. I'll test him...
