    Re: Trilostone

    Liquid med doses can easily be confusing so don't feel bad. ;) The bottle should say something like 50mg/ml or 10mg/ml or 20mg/ml. Then it will tell you how many ml to give. So if you are using...
  12. Re: Medication not working on symptoms anymore but cortisol levels ok?

    Hi and welcome from me as well!

    You said -

    I'm glad the testing all came back normal! That is always a relief even in the face of changes like those you mention. My Squirt developed dementia and started pacing in the late afternoons. She...
  19. Re: Newly diagnosed - Any success stories with Tristolane?

    Great news about the improvements so far! As for what the vet will look for - they will, or should, ask you if you are seeing improvements in the signs and which one and how much improvement. The...
