    Re: My big boy Gable

    Joan, my understanding is that for a dog dosed twice daily, you’d give the evening dose as usual prior to a morning pre-pill test. So if you didn’t give the evening dose prior to the 4.2 reading,...
  2. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    That’s pretty much what I had guessed — that the internist is basing this increase on Maggie’s extenuating circumstances. I can’t argue with that, especially since Dr. B agrees ;-). It’s very good...
  3. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero new Cushing's diagnosis, weight loss??

    Hello Amy, and welcome to you and little Maggie! You are exactly right that weight gain is the far more common Cushing’s symptom. However, my own Cushpup, a Labrador retriever, was also an...

    Re: New to Cushings

    Hi Karen, and thanks for the update. In answer to your question about Lysodren, here’s a link to a thread that Leslie posted last year re: Bristol-Myers-Squibb’s divestiture of the manufacture of...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Well darn :-((((. Honestly, Joan, if it was me, I’d probably discontinue the added 5 mg. again, at least until after you’re back from your trip. Gable has shown himself to be quite sensitive to...
  6. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    In Maggie’s case, since the ACTH is being used for monitoring purposes rather than diagnostic purposes, the lab’s printed norms may or may not be relevant to her situation. Many times, the printed...
  7. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Evaluating the results of an ACTH stimulation test can be very confusing, that’s for sure. This is especially true because the test can be used either for diagnostic purposes prior to beginning...
  8. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    The standard recommendation is *not* to increase a Vetoryl dose until the first month of treatment has been completed. This is because cortisol levels can continue to drift downward during that...

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

    Hello again from me! I’m sorry it’s been such a long time since I last wrote on your thread, but I’ve been traveling and am just now having the chance to catch up again on the forum. After...
  10. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    How great to meet another member of the Marianne sisterhood — there aren’t a whole bunch of us around! ;-)))))))))))

    We’ll certainly be wishing you girls well on your stim test tomorrow, and we’ll...

    Hello, and welcome to you and Maggie from me, as well! I’m sorry this has been my first chance to write, but I’ve been out of town and away from the forum for awhile. I surely understand how...

    Hi Joan, that’s great about the cooling vest, and we’ll all be hoping the increase will help some, too. Per the guidelines associated with pre-pill testing, an increase is indeed consistent with...

    Hi Judi, just wanted to stop by with my fingers crossed that you’ve safely moved to Ontario and are starting to settle in. You’ve weathered so much heartache and frustration over these past months. ...

    Hi Karen, I’m not really “back” yet, and unfortunately I only have a few minutes to write tonight. But in my opinion, whether or not Annie’s rising cortisol needs to be addressed more aggressively...

    Dear Karen,

    I am so very sorry for your tragic loss of little Rosie. Those days of uncertainty must have been so terrible for you. But as Kathy has written, Rosie is free of all pain now, and...

    Re: Our 14 year old mutt, Penny

    Sorry I have only a moment to write, but you don’t have to taper off of Vetoryl — you can just stop it entirely at any time it seems advisable.

    Re: My big boy Gable

    I, too, agree that the dosing change is definitely worth a try. Certainly you can’t go wrong by testing in two weeks. If he seems to be doing well at that point, though, you could decide then...
