    Don't even try to give her the Vetoryl, no matter what the vet says. We refrain from giving it when they are not well and especially not eating. I hope the vet visit this morning brings some relief...

    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.

  14. 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...
