  1. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Leslie,

    Thank you for sharing that beautiful ode to “old dogs”. It is all so very true and touching. And thank you for all the words of support. I finally dreamt of Jackson last night. In the...

    Karen, good to hear from you and so glad to hear Annie is doing well. Thank you for your kind words. I am still struggling with Jackson’s loss. My logical side knows that he wasn’t living he was...
  3. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Thank you so much Lori. I felt like I was coping a bit better last week but my husband left to go out of town last night. It is my first long stretch of time in the house alone without my boy and...

    Marianne,

    Thank you for the kind words of support. I know so many of us here know the pain of losing a much loved pet. I recently started going through pictures so I can memorialize him at home...

    Thank you for the kind words Joan. Every day I feel like my heart heals a bit.
  6. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hi Everyone -

    I've been struggling to sit down and write this post but I am hoping it will be cathartic. Our little Jackson gained his wings on 2-14-21. He would have been 15 in May and we had...
  7. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Leslie, thank you so much for the info. I will definitely be looking into the meds. I believe Jackson is experiencing Sundowners as well. He gets very anxious in the early evening and paces and...
  8. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hi Karen. So good to hear from you and to hear that Annie is doing well on her meds. I searched through posts yesterday to see if I could find a recent post from you and see how Annie was doing. ...
  9. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hello everyone! Hope you are all well and are getting by ok in this bizarre COVID world we now live in. Luckily my husband and I are both still working and haven’t been impacted in that regard...
  10. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Happy New Year everyone.

    It has been quite a while since I’ve been on the forum. When I look at the date of my last post I know why. June is the month my dad was diagnosed with mouth cancer. ...

    Re: Attitude for gratitude

    During my early morning walks with Jackson (anytime between 4 & 5 AM because that is when his senior anxiety has him panting and licking and pacing by the bedroom door) I have noticed myself being...

    Re: New to Cushings

    Hi Karen,
    It’s been a while since I’ve been out here but I just got caught up on Annie’s status. Annie is in good hands at the vet so I hope you are able to enjoy your fishing trip.

    Re: New to Cushings

    Such good news! It sounds like she is in great hands and will be back home recovering soon. One day at a time...I have to keep reminding myself that I just need to tackle one day at a time.

  17. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hello friends. I am finally getting a chance to sit down and share the ACTH results for Jackson.
    Pre - 0.4
    Post - 3.3

    When I finally was able to speak with the vet I was in a store and was...
  18. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hello and Happy Monday! The first ten business days of every month are my super busy time at work so I haven't had time to be on-line for anything not work related.

    So Jackson had his ACTH back...
  19. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hi Glynda. Thanks for expressing your concern. I did read somewhere about the lower dose in bigger dogs but I thought it was a weigh range higher than Jackson’s but I’m sure I am misremembering. ...
  20. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hello wonderful K9C friends. Just sharing an update on Jackson because it helps me process everything. He has had six doses of Trilostane so far. It does seem like he is drinking less - is it too...

    Re: New to Cushings

    Oh my gosh Karen, what horrible neighbors. Glad Annie is doing well. I know we are giving our pups different meds but I stress out every morning and I talk to myself while putting it into his...
  22. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Newbie here - trying to figure this all out.

    So I called the vet's office to schedule Jackson's ACTH at 12 days but they won't schedule it on a Saturday so I am thinking of moving it up a day. ...
  23. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Lori and Marianne - thank you for your replies.

    I hope we didn't jump the gun (based on your suggestions to retest for a UTI, which we did not do) but we started Jackson on Trilostane this...
  24. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hello,

    It's been about a month since I've been out here. I was just on the phone with Jackson's vet. He had a follow up LDDS on Monday. She is still hesitant to start him on any meds and...
  25. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hi Marianne,

    Jackson has always been very food motivated but there are times now when he is almost frantic around food. I would say he is a little pot bellied and I don’t know if I am noticing...
