    Re: New to Cushings

    I second what Marianne had to say - IF the BG is well controlled *and* her signs are well controlled I'd leave things as they are for now. But I do have a question - while she was in boarding did...
  5. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Good for you! You are absolutely correct in stopping the Vetoryl. WAY TO GO, MOM!

    Do contact her vet and let us know how Maggie is doing!
    Hugs,

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    FYI - if you are giving the lignans in the hope they will help with Cushing's they won't by themselves. In Atypical Cushing's, in which the cortisol is NORMAL but 2 or more of the intermediates are...
  7. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    10mg is not too high for Maggie. Just keep an eye out for those signs I gave you that would indicate the cortisol is too low. That doesn't mean I am worried because I am not - her starting dose is...
  8. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Hi and welcome to you and Maggie!

    I understand very well how terrified this diagnosis can be. When I first heard that word in connection with my Squirt in 2007 I thought my world was ending. I...
  9. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    History has proven that larger dogs often need smaller doses than smaller dogs. It seems backwards but we (and Dechra) see that many larger dogs need only a very small dose while the smaller dogs...

    Re: Nightime Panting and accidents

    Has your baby had an abdominal ultrasound? If not I would want that done asap on a high resolution machine so they can see more of the internal organs clearly. It is possible something is pushing...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    I am glad she is eating something :cool: and that would be my goal for right now - getting her to eat, period. If she will eat the Nutro then let her have it. Odds are she will lose her taste for...

    Dear Karen,

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    I think your last thought is spot on - focus on her kidneys right now. Remember hydration is crucial for any sort of kidney problem so if she needs subQ fluids then don't hesitate to provide them. ...

    Re: Looking for Dr. on East Coast for Pituitary Tumor Removal

    I second what Lori said - forget about Cushing's. When my Squirt reached the age of 15 she had developed several other conditions and I made the choice to stop treatment for Cushing's even tho none...
  18. Re: Our 14 year old mutt, Penny

    Hi,

    I'm glad you discussed this with Penny's vet but this statement:



    is absolutely incorrect. The manufacturer of the drug, the one who MADE the drug, says in no uncertain terms that their...

    Let us know what you learned at the last vet visit when you can. As for the yeasty smell and redness - is the vet sure it's allergies? If so ask about a new allergy treatment called Cytopoint. It...
  22. Re: Our 14 year old mutt, Penny

    I am so sorry to see those results for the kidney function. If I were you, I would stop the Vetoryl with no plans to start it back. Vetoryl is contraindicated for dogs with kidney disease. From...

    Hi,

    Your latest post referred to "this surgery" but as a stand alone post (not in this thread) no one has any idea what surgery you are referring to and cannot give you any meaningful input. So I...
