  1. Sticky: Re: Reunion!! — 10th Anniversary Celebration for k9cushings.com

    I was supposed to be here a few weeks ago but then my gallbladder tried to kill me - apparently my Bohemian ancestors' gall bladders take the first sign of trouble as a reason to curl up and die! LOL...

    Re: Very worried, need help

    I am sad to report that Bug passed away Sunday, April 8, 2018, after becoming very ill abruptly the night before. He had been doing well since that last episode, definitely aging and slowing down,...

    Re: Very worried, need help

    As far as cortisol level goes, the symptoms you describe would be signs of low cortisol rather than high... but it's hard to say if it is related to cortisol at all.

    I hope that treating it as...

    Michelle, can you test his blood sugar? With throwing up, it could be low.
  5. Re: Hondo lane ..my dog has been diagnosed with cushings .need help with ? for specia

    Glad to see you at K9D Luke. You can test his blood sugar yourself at home. See www.k9diabetes.com/bgtestvideos.html for some video tutorials on getting a blood sample for use with a human meter....

    Re: Pet Insurance

    I recently tracked down this post when someone asked me about pet insurance and asked for quotes through the review site.

    Our VPI coverage does not usually reimburse everything - we have sort of...
  7. Re: new, is this where I post? new diabetes diagnosis

    I was able to copy the above post from K9D directly to a new post here. I think you can do the same.
  8. Re: new, is this where I post? new diabetes diagnosis

    Natalie,
    he has pituitary cushings. He just had another seizure about 30 minutes ago and is now sleeping. I was wondering if the tumor was growing.

    I posted his meds on the cushings site and I'...
  9. Re: new, is this where I post? new diabetes diagnosis

    I posted at K9D... doesn't make sense to me to give Trilostane (suppresses cortisol) and Prednisone (supplements cortisol) at the same time regardless of what's going on with him.

    If his PDH has...
  10. Re: new, is this where I post? new diabetes diagnosis

    For diabetes advice, best to post on the diabetes forum as there are many people besides myself there who can offer support. I just moved your thread there to the main diabetes discussion area.

  11. Re: new, is this where I post? new diabetes diagnosis

    I think it is fine to give 3 units given how high his blood sugar is. They can have up to half of their normal dose with no food when their blood sugar is a lot lower than his.

  13. Re: new, is this where I post? new diabetes diagnosis

    Ah, that's good. You're also not all that far from Texas A&M, which I think is one of the better vet schools in terms of caring for diabetic dogs. Oddly, though, their influence doesn't seem to...

    Hi,

    I'm the administrator of the diabetes forum.

    Are you in an area large enough to have a specialty veterinary clinic?

    Your dog needs to receive insulin regardless of whether he's...

    Re: Diabetes & Cushings Diagnosis April/May

    I have posted to the thread at K9D and think a change in insulin should be tried. If possible, I'd try a week or R only four times a day and see if that demonstrates that the NPH is the problem.

    Ketostix or Ketodiastix are urine test strips you can buy at a pharmacy. If they don't have them in stock, they should be able to order them for you.

    Does she have any ketones?

    The blood sugar you listed is terribly high and ketones could be a problem at this point if it is remaining high. They are potentially fatal.

    Do you have test...
