    Re: Whiskey has joined our beloved at The Bridge

    Oh Annie, I'm so sorry!!! I've been having computer/internet problems and just read about sweet Whiskey. My heart aches for you. It does get better with time but I sure know the feeling of the...
  2. Re: Skippy, 12 y/o Yorkie with likely pituitary tumor (Trilostane)

    Thanks for the update Carole, I hope that the cabergoline is working. And I totally agree with you about letting the anger go, that isn't going to help you or Skippy. Dogs feel what we are feeling...
  3. Re: Questions about Cushings - Charlotte has crossed the Bridge

    Thanks for asking about my husband Joan. It's been hard on him and he hasn't been home since Charlotte passed. He said his goodbyes before he left and I think it was easier for him that he wasn't...

    "All at Purdue agreed that clients should be apprised of the possibility of a macro and an MRI should be recommended at the outset of treatment, especially if the dog is displaying even subtle...

    Re: Young boxer lily diagnosed

    I wish more vets understood the importance of knowing whether a tumor was a macro, but I also know that not all of us can afford the scan or MRI to determine it. We were unable to afford those...
  8. Re: Skippy, 12 y/o Yorkie with likely pituitary tumor (Trilostane)

    Dear Carole,

    I'm thinking of you and Skippy everyday. This is my first day back to the forum since Charlotte passed, I just couldn't see though my tears to read and type. I am very anxious to...

    Re: Whiskey -- Possible Cushing's

    Thinking of you and Whiskey, glad to hear he is hanging in there! My Tanner, who looked a lot like Whiskey, loved vanilla ice cream and looked forward to it daily. I never tried banana muffins,...

  11. Charlotte crossed over the bridge today...

  13. Re: Questions about Cushings symptoms and diagnosis

    Im so sorry Carole! Please keep me posted on what you learn from Perdue. Charlotte is still hanging in there but so far i havent seen any changes from the new supplements she is taking. Im just...
  14. Re: Skippy, 12 y/o Yorkie with likely pituitary tumor (Trilostane)

    Im so sorry Carole! I know you suspected this but not what you wanted to hear. I also wish i would have been told the importance of diagnosing a macro early on, before i spent thousands on other...

    One more question for you. How long did it take you to see the cabergoline start to work?

    Re: Cushing's questions from a new member

    Thanks for your response and yes we have checked Charlotte's thyroid. Although they don't feel there is anything wrong I do know it's a very misdiagnosed problem in people so I suppose she could be...
  17. Re: Down the Cushings Road Again -- Abbie, 13 year old beagle

    Oh how I feel your frustration! I don't dare add anything unusual to Charlotte's meatloaf because it's all she will eat and I can't afford to turn her off of that. Unfortunately now the eating...
  18. Re: Questions about Cushings symptoms and diagnosis

    Thanks for sharing all your research Carole. Very interesting and im going to speak to our local vet tomorrow about this. As much as i want the holistic supplements to kick in and work, im worried...
  19. Re: Skippy, 12 y/o Yorkie with likely pituitary tumor (Trilostane)

    Thanks for turning me on to Declan's thread and the use of cabergoline. I have read through it and i think i will ask Charlotte's vet about it tomorrow. Seems it couldnt hurt to try it. We are day to...

    Re: Cushing's questions from a new member

    I am also very interested in your experience with cabergoline. I have mostly the same questions as Carole posted. My Charlotte couldnt tolerate vetoryl and has been off of it for a couple of months...
  21. Re: Skippy, 12 y/o Yorkie with likely pituitary tumor (Trilostane)

    How is Skippy doing? Have you started him on the milk thistle yet? If so, how much are you giving him? I'm hesitant to say this but after 3 days on it I think I see a difference in Charlotte. She...
  22. Re: Questions about Cushings symptoms and diagnosis

    Thanks Carole, I won't pretend it isn't hard but I'm glad she is still here with me. She was so sweet last night when she cuddled up with me in bed and put her head on my shoulder and just stared at...
  23. Re: Questions about Cushings symptoms and diagnosis

    Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers! I wanted to check in breifly to let all of you know that Charlotte is still with us for now. The vet we have used for home euthanasia (who is...
  24. Re: Questions about Cushings symptoms and diagnosis

    Thank you everyone. I'm home now and she has not improved. The hardest thing is that she met me at the door and then went out and chased a squirrel. But after that she just went back to pacing and...
  25. Re: Questions about Cushings symptoms and diagnosis

    No Sharlene, she isnt drinking on her own yet. I fear the tumor is causing that part of her brain to not function properly and her tongue just doesnt know what to do. She wouldnt eat this morning...
