    Sticky: Re: Checking in for August 2019

    Dear Karen, everything is all taken care of now. Please look at my new post on Rosie’s thread, and please know how sorry I am about your loss.

  2. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's — Rosie has crossed Rainbow Bridge

    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...

    Re: New to Cushings

    Karen, I hope you have a really fruitful conversation with Dr. Elizabeth tomorrow. And although I know it’s hard, try not to fret unduly about the stim numbers. You’ve reported that Annie is...

    Re: New to Cushings

    Hello, Karen, and welcome home to everybody :-))))))). Even though it wasn’t necessarily relaxing, I’m so glad you and hubby were able to take this trip together. It sounds like a much needed break...

    I am so, so sorry to read this news. I know how precious Athena has been — and will always be — to your family. In the midst of your own sorrow, thank you so much for letting us know what has...

    Re: Symptoms

    I’m really sorry that Bo remains so uncomfortable, but it sounds as though you’re doing everything you can to sort things out. I have to agree that a full blood panel will be a good idea if nothing...

    We’ll be watching for those updates, Karen, and hoping that all goes well for all three of you! I know it’ll be hard to leave Annie behind, but we caregivers do need moments of respite in order to...
  14. Re: My 13 Year Old Dog - New Diagnosis Questions about Vetoryl

    Here’s a belated welcome from me, too! Kathy is being way too modest re: her own Cushing’s knowledge, and I’m really glad that she had the chance to respond to you so promptly. I can only “second”...

    Hello again, and thanks so much for all the additional info you’ve been giving us. Regarding the ACTH results, for the benefit of some of our other readers, I’m converting Snoopy’s results into the...

    Re: Symptoms

    If your vet is only performing resting cortisol tests, then the blood draw should be taken first thing in the morning before the tablet — NOT 3-4 hours afterward. Here is another link that may make...

    Thanks so much for the speedy reply! As far as the monitoring testing, if a full ACTH stimulation test is performed, then the recommended timeframe is indeed around 4 hours after dosing along with a...

    Hello and welcome to you and Bo! I’m surely sorry you’ve seen no improvement in her symptoms so far. I know how hard it must be for you to see her continuing discomfort :-(. And yes, after six...
  20. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Oh, this is great news :-)))). The one cautionary note that I’d add is that, if Louis is now getting his pill along with food whereas previously he was not, his cortisol level might well come down...

    Re: New to Cushings

    Hey Karen, we all have “those” days — we know where you’re at ;-)

    After me harping about getting a stim test done ASAP, you’ll probably be stunned to hear me suggest that if you cannot proceed...

    Oh, I’d forgotten about that scary episode over the winter! That was weird, for sure :-(.

    I definitely think it’s worth asking your vet about the Tylan and/or Flagyl. I don’t have any personal...
  23. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Yes, our understanding is that the pre pill cortisol check has become a much more common general monitoring approach over there in the U.K. Some vets are also using that approach now in the U.S.,...

    Hello, and welcome back! I’m sorry, though, about these new worries about Daisy’s kidneys. However, as far as your question re: the Vetoryl, if it was me, I’d probably not be stopping her Vetoryl...
