    Re: Stalin (pug) may be joining the club

    Hi and welcome. The numbers on the tests would be very helpful. Blood work HIGHS and LOWS with the reference ranges. Always try to get the results sent to you so you have a record. I didn't do...

    Re: Papillon With Cushing's 2 1/2 years

    When Lena was taking the Vetoryl she became very picky. For a dog who loved her kibble and any other food, I had to jump through hoops to get her to eat so I could give her the pills. I made her...

    Re: Papillon With Cushing's 2 1/2 years

    Managing through just clinical signs can be dangerous. My Gable was peeing and drinking more and I almost raised his dose from 5mg a day to 10mg a day without testing. I decided to get him tested...

    Re: Suni

    I've been keeping up with Suni's progress and am so happy that she seems to be adjusting. It is hard on the others when they don't understand what has happened.

    Now I'm a sobbing mess...what a beautiful poem. Every word reminds me of my precious and how hard her first birthday in Heaven was...her first everything in Heaven. I wish every day that I had had...
  6. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    I forget when I stopped counting the weeks...now it's years and I still think of her every day. I totally understand, if only I could hold her against my heart again.

    Hugs, hugs and hugs...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    I had an ACTH done yesterday, he's still panting a lot, drinking a lot and breathing very heavy so I just wanted to make sure his cortisol didn't drop too low.

  10. Re: Update on Sasha (Vet reluctant to treat), not doing very well

    I'm so sorry for your loss of sweet Sasha. The quiet is so loud when they leave us. I still listen for my Lena sliding on the floors and the way it sounded when she would push the kibble around in...

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

    I truly believe that you did. For weeks after Lena died I would all of a sudden pick up on scent of the lotion they used to clean her before they gave her to me after she had died. At first I...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Thanks, Marianne...I'm listening to him breathe right now, and I think he sounds more comfortable already. Although it is only 60 degrees out! LOL!
  15. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    It's not that our minds are hurtful, just that we want to change the outcome.

    I always wonder if she looked for me before they put her to sleep...did she hear me on the phone telling her how much...

    Right...so check in two weeks? Or sooner?

    Thanks, Marianne. I had the thyroid panel done yesterday. It came back low, 1.8. I had stopped giving him the second pill a few months ago when he started drinking more (like he did that time his...

    Well, finally got some money so had Gable in for blood work. The only thing I didn't get done was the Thyroid panel because I was doing the PVT and the Thyroid panel needs to be done 4 - 6 hours...

    I know...I still wake up on Friday's with that sick feeling that she died on a Friday five years ago. Sometimes I think that I haven't thought about her all day, and then realize that I have. ...

    Yes, Dechra is very helpful. I called the hot line when I inadvertently took Gable's pills by mistake. Apparently it is a common occurrence! LOL!

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Yes, Cooper may need a lower dose. I think others have gone even lower with the compounded Vetoryl. We were actually going to try that if the 5mg turned out to be too...
