    Well, I don't think this is what is going on, it's only slightly lower than it should be:

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Maybe, the last time it was checked it was okay, but that was a while ago. I forgot to have them test it the last time he had the blood work done. I'll try to have it done tomorrow after work.

    I know, Marianne. I started to do what you said and then I thought "nah". I almost raised it because of how much he's drinking, but decided to wait. I think I'll wait another week or two, then...

    Re: Holidays can be hard...

    Happy New Year to all!

    I've been passing ornaments on to my son the past few years. He's a huge Disney fan, in fact he is leaving tomorrow morning for a week long visit. I've given him all of my...
  8. Re: Our 14 year old mutt, Penny

    If Penny were my dog, even if her cortisol is within range, I would stop the vetoryl and see if it makes a difference. Stopping it for a while won't hurt her. Constant diarrhea puts such a strain...

    The pictures are adorable, Jeff. I couldn't look at them yesterday, I was crying too hard...it's beautiful to see the love our dogs give to our children, or in my case, grandchildren. They accept...
  11. Re: Penny has Cushings!!!

    Jeff, I am so sad to read this news. From following all of your posts about Penny it’s clear how loved she was, and how much she loved you. She was a sweetheart, that’s for sure...many, many hugs to...

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Our Cushing's journey started 4 years ago this week with Lena's diagnosis. We lost her just a couple of months later, February 19. It's hard, especially around the...

    Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    I'm so glad that Leslie said that because that is exactly what I was thinking. Lou is your dog, you are in charge of his healthcare, and you pay the vet, who should know that stopping the medication...

    I'll try that and see.

    Yep, I feel the same. Gable is going to be 11 this year. Doree, our teacup chihuahua is 15 or 16 with knees that pop in and out and a grade 3 heart murmur, she's already...

    Hi Jenni, and welcome from me too. Poor Eli! I'm no expert, but that starting dose was pretty high. My Gable was about 80 pounds when we first started him on the Vetoryl at 40mgs. He did well for...

    Leslie, the link wasn't working for me during the day, but I just went on and ordered. I think this is a lovely way to raise money for the cause! I'm going to order from Lynch Creek as well.

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Thanks, Marianne...I'll keep giving him the 5mg twice a day and see it helps. If not, I'll go back to the 10am and 5pm. I think I have wiggle room with that 2.8 resting cortisol result.

    It's killing me, Marianne. I'm getting all kinds of flashbacks to Lena.

    He's such a good boy, he doesn't deserve this. He keeps looking at me like he's wondering why I can't make him feel...
