    Re: Thoughts on Possible Cushings?

    I used it several years back before Vetoryl became available here in the US...it helped w/some of the more "out there" behaviors, which I assumed to be Cushings (as she was diagnosed) but are also...
  2. Re: Dog Diagnosed and feeling unsure about diagnosis and treatment

    By most accounts, and from other pet owners I have spoken to, Vetoryl is a very good drug and safer than many/most of the older Cushings treatments. Just observe him carefully during the first week...
  3. Re: Recently diagnosed, looking for any insight from the community.

    melatonin, lignans and milk thistle are all recommended non-Rx options. But, I have to agree w/the others, shaking/trembling is a common side effect from treatment...I think it's tied to dropping...
  4. Re: Vetoryl not effective? What are my options?

    God Bless your little Norwich. They are terrific little dogs. I own an Aussie Terrier and have had 2 with Cushings. Perhaps some of the circling behavior is due to old age/doggie dementia setting...

    Re: New to the Forum - English Bulldog Mom

    Hello,
    Lignans and melatonin daily may prove helpful. U of Tennessee Veterinary used to provide guidelines on the daily amounts for each. You can probably look it up. Rodiola is another adaptogenic...

    Re: flaxseed lignans

    Flaxseed Lignans, Sam-e, Milk thistle and melatonin are all Non-Rx options to try...and unlikely to prove harmful.

    Lignans can be bought in capsule form; if you go with the seeds, mixing them...

    Re: yorkie unable to tolerate vetoryl

    Why some vets fixate on one and only one treatment is beyond me... anipryl might help w/symptoms if vetoryl is not tolerated. However, it probably just addresses the symptoms, not the underlying...

    Re: Gracie's Story

    Gracie is a real cutie:)

    I'm assuming they did the UCCR test up front? that can't confirm cushings, but it can rule it out. Still, everything else you describe seems to be Cushings like...but...

    Re: Squirt - my Queen has crossed The Bridge

    Oh Leslie,

    I am so sorry to hear about Squirt's passing. I've been away for the last few months dealing w/eldercare issues, but no matter how much time went by, I'd always come back to see how...

    Re: Lysodren effectiveness

    It's been a long time since I used lysodren, but I remember it taking a good 2 weeks to see cushing symptoms resolve. But, every case is a little different. you just won't see results overnight, is...

    Re: Molly, 10 yr, shih tzu - lhasa aspo, cushing diagnosis

    Wow...reading back on these posts and very much a puzzle. Still, I wouldn't give lysodren if no serious symptoms are present. Lignans and Melatonin are worth a shot. Lignans capsules can be...

    I hope the PT does you good Leslie...I had 35 sessions in order to avoid surgery on my leg! Kind of extreme, but less trauma then getting cut and "rebuilt". I hope Squirt stabilizes and is...
  18. Re: Severe Calcinosis Cutis - desperate! Have you had any luck?

    It's really tough when it's severe...you may want to try a little bit of milk of magnesia...shake it up and apply gently to the sores/affected area.

    Re: 17 yr old with bad reaction to Vetoryl

    Wow.
    I'm no expert on Vetoryl, but seeing that ACTH test come back after Vetoryl treatment at 14.4 post reading, I'd really question that increase in dosage. Sounds like your vet is trying to...
  21. Re: Blood clot a complication of Cushings - Cooper passed

    So sorry to hear about Cooper. I'm sure you did all you could.

    I would think a blood clot is very possible as a side effect of cushings. The blood can get very thick, due to above average...

    Re: New diagnosis, concerns about Trilostane

    Love Norman's X-Mas outfit!

    Perhaps try some of the glucosomine based supplements for the arthritis; minimal use of NSAIDs is best for Cushpups, as they affect the liver. I used doggy aspirin...
  24. Re: In need of advice for my Norman

    I also used melatonin and lignans (but I was not treating w/vetoryl, I was using anipryl). I found it eliminated the nighttime restlessness that often afflicts cushpups. I was dealing w/my baby...

    Based on what I've read here, it does not sound like he has cushings, but it's possible he's in the very early stages, I suppose. I went through a...
