    Re: New Member

    Hi Vanessa and welcome to you and Cheyenne!

    Thank you for sharing that information on the LDDS, ACTH, and labs for the liver values. Were there any other abnormal results, too high or too low,...

    Re: Holidays can be hard...

    Hi Dawn,

    Closing the door to the love of a partner is something I understand...and regret deeply now that many years have passed since I made that same decision. I hope you will reconsider and...

    Re: New diagnosis and treatment fears

    Hi and welcome to you and your baby boy! :)

    Boy, do I understand the fear part of your title! When my 7 year old Squirt was first diagnosed in 2007 I started to panic almost immediately. For...

    Re: Bailey and Friends

    Hey, Susan!

    Sorry to miss your earlier post so a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours! It is hard to think of Bailey being 9 already...seems like just yesterday you were...
  8. Re: Cushing's and Diabetes, what's been your experience?

    I would add that in the absence of some of the hallmark signs of Cushing's like voracious appetite, panting for no reason, and no pot belly - I wouldn't put her thru the stress of another round of...

    ahhhh ok! That did work! Thanks!
  10. Re: Cushing's and Diabetes, what's been your experience?

    My little Tilly has an odor like that from her mouth, too, but nothing have been found as a cause. She had most of her teeth removed just before she came to me and I wonder if hers isn't caused by...

    Re: New Diagnosis and 7 day update

    Good to hear from you and so glad to hear Macie is doing well! Keep up the good work and do let us hear from you when you can!
  12. Re: Hello all, looking for advice with our baby Minnie

    Good to hear from you again but I agree with Marianne. Too often we have seen vets who don't know how to read the ACTH results for a dog on treatment. The ranges listed from the labs as normal are...
  13. Sticky: Re: Candles in honor of our babies at The Bridge

    Sadly I can no longer find the K9C candles....nothing worked in the search for me but I still lit one for Squirt.

    Re: Holidays can be hard...

    My youngest grandson, 14, has been with me this week and that has brought a depth of joy that otherwise would not have been present this time of year. We both wanted the Disney+ channel added to our...

  17. Re: New diagnosis - questions for other readers

    No we didn't know about the tumor when we were doing the tests prior to the ultrasound. It was the last test we did and that is when we found the tumor. The testing bothered me more than it did...
  18. Re: Treatment question: Dog not responding well to treatment

    Hi Abby,

    STOP the Vetoryl now and get and ACTH performed plus have her electrolytes checked immediately. Recent studies have shown that larger dogs need a much smaller starting dose that Dechra...
  19. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Good to hear from you again but I am so sorry to hear both that Maggie got so sick. I am very glad she pulled thru.

    Now I'm gonna be real blunt - I also VERY sorry that the Vetoryl continues to...
  20. Re: New diagnosis - questions for other readers

    Hi Audrey! Welcome to you and Vinny!

    If I were in your shoes I would simply forget about Cushing's. For one thing, the liver mass can cause false-positives on all the cushing's test. These...

    Re: Potential Cushings diagnosis

    In addition to what Marianne said about the testing....it should also be done around the same time every time. So if Bella had the firs test at 10AM then all the ACTHs following need to be done as...

    Dear Jeff,

    Penny and you have come to mean so much to us all. It has been an honor to walk through this journey with the two of you for the past four years. We were able to watch her become a...
  24. Re: Cushing's and Diabetes, what's been your experience?

    It is very difficult for some of us to talk to the vets in such a manner....I was one of those who found it very uncomfortable. But I had to remind myself that my dog's life depended on me, on my...

    Good for you, Mom! :cool::cool: Way to hold your ground! :cool::cool: I am also glad the vet was willing to listen and work with your wishes on the 30mg dose. She just may be surprised with the...
