    Re: Corona Virus Pandemic Preparedness

    Oh man, Kathy, I hate it that things are looking so bad out there, even in the midst of the lockdown. There’s so much that remains unknown, but given how much we do know, it fries my brain that so...

    Re: Corona Virus Pandemic Preparedness

    So glad to hear you’re still safe and secure, Kathy! As severe as those restrictions are, I do think they’re *so* necessary to try to slow the spread. I had my fingers crossed that our Georgia...
  6. Re: Not convinced my dog doesn’t have Cushings!

    Hi again! There is one other alternative “gateway” test that you could consider. It’s called the UC:CR, or urine cortisol to creatinine ratio. We’ve been told that the best method by which to...

    Re: Corona Virus Pandemic Preparedness

    And Lori, I’m so sorry about your aunt. That’s probably the hardest thing of all about this new isolation — to not be able to spend more time with family and friends in their times of need. The...

    Kathy, you’re right that we discourage political statements or confrontations here. But I don’t take your message to be political. Instead, you’re reporting on the conditions in your area, as well...

    Re: Corona Virus Pandemic Preparedness

    It will be heartbreaking when any of these women watch a vulnerable loved one succomb to Corona, and they must then forever wonder whether they’re the one who directly passed the contagion on in...
  14. Re: Yohnny 11 year old Shih-tzu with Cushing-like problems

    I do wish I could give you an accurate answer, but I cannot since I don’t really know what’s wrong. I know how frustrating it is to have to wait to see either a vet or a human doctor, for that...

    Re: Trilostone

    That’s great — that’s what we needed to know. This means that every ml. of liquid contains 10 mg. of trilostane. So in order to give Teddy a 5 mg. dose of trilostane, you’ll be giving him 1/2 a ml....

  19. Re: Medication not working on symptoms anymore but cortisol levels ok?

    Thanks for this added information. It appears as though Rosebud was diagnosed with Cushing’s last summer after having had a LDDS test performed (Low Dose Dexamethasone Suppression Test). The test...

    You get a gold star for juggling, that’s for sure!!! And no, under the circumstances, your plan doesn’t sound crazy. If dosing in the evening generally works best, I say go for it. And yes, I’d...
