  1. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    We lost our sweet, precious boy to internal bleeding yesterday. I feel like nothing, ever, will fill the gaping wound where my heart used to be. Thank you all so much for your support these past...
  2. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Hello, All...

    Things are OK here, but it’s been a trial. His first night home was a nightmare that included a 2a.m. vet visit for more pain medication that didn't even put a dent in his...
  3. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Just a quick note - you all have touched me so, your reactions brought tears to my eyes. Truly...you are all angels. Thank you a million times for all of your positive thoughts and support!!

  4. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Just rang the vet - he is awake and almost sitting up, we can come get him! Whew!!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Don't know anything more than that just yet, will update when I can, but I may be...

    Re: Heavy heart

    Claire,

    You are correct in your assessment of the relative necessity (or not) of an ultrasound in your case. For some of us whose tests results are borderline or (like in my case) even negative,...
  6. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Jordan is in surgery now. We will know more after 1600 our time, 1000 EST, and I will report back. Please keep us in your hearts. I held it together (mostly) until I had to let the tech take him, and...
  7. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Thanks, Leslie...truly, you are an angel. I've been home with them for over three years now, and am having an extremely difficult time with the idea of leaving them completely in a few weeks. I know...
  8. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Much cleaner ultrasound today, properly prepped, which confirmed that there are several masses on (in?) his kidney. He is scheduled to have it removed on Thursday. Doc was fairly matter-of-fact,...
  9. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Just a quick update...because I know everybody is wondering about my dog's pee :rolleyes:...seems I was wrong and the blood has not disappeared. Doc told me on Friday that he expected it might 'wax...
  10. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Thanks for the input, Leslie...and it turns out, I think you're right, he can probably function on one kidney if that does become necessary. As to his blood levels, the doc didn't do a full panel...

    Re: Heavy heart

    The test results would undoubtedly be useful in order for some of our senior members to help you be more comfortable in the diagnosis, first and foremost. While I understand (and envy, a bit!) that...
  12. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    We had a very productive vet visit today, and I have to admit that there may have been a communication problem with the whole, "it's a side effect" thing. Doc took me very seriously, particularly...
  13. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Thanks, Ladies.

    First of all...I can't find my other thread merged into this one, but I'm pretty sure it was you, Leslie, angel, who suggested I contact Dr. Bruyette? Um, yeah, BOTH of you?? ...
  14. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    I went so far as to call the drug manufacturer here, who said they can't comment on what it might do in a dog, but that it does not cause urine discoloration in humans.

    I decided to take him to...
  15. Re: Can Anipryl causing urine discoloration?

    Oy. Can Anipryl CAUSE urine discoloration, not causING. As you can see, I'm a bit of a mess over this.
  16. Can Anipryl causing urine discoloration?

    I'm sorry to start a new thread...I didn't know how else to bring this to the forefront.

    Can anyone tell me if their pup has experienced discolored urine - in our case, very dark brown - after...
  17. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Just got off the phone with the vet, and he is saying that the brown urine is a side effect of the Anipryl and not to worry about it?!?!

    Does that seem right? Anyone else with Anipryl have this...
  18. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Thanks, y'all. I'd already rung the vet, but he's in surgery until four, so I have to call back then. Meanwhile, I've spoken to my mum, who has me in a panic over kidney or liver failure, so I'm...
  19. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Hey guys...can somebody give me some ideas here? Jordan is peeing brown, as of at least this morning, which is when I first noticed it. I was hopeful that it was from me sharing a red drink with him...
  20. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Thanks, Ladies!

    I just dropped off the Anipryl 'script and will pick it up at 1800 this evening, so we'll probably get him started on it tomorrow. I say probably only because he's had a really...
  21. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Anyone...??
  22. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Hey Everyone!

    Well, after telling him just yesterday that we were not going to pursue further treatment yet, I just sent the following email to the vet:

    Can you please see that Dr. M gets this...
  23. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Hey, Everyone...

    I hope all is well with you and yours. I just wanted to check in with a minor update. Yesterday's vet visit turned into just a consult, much to everyone's frustration, I think,...
  24. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Thanks, Leslie! From the reading I've done this afternoon, I find myself firmly on the same page with you, so at least now I'm going in fairly informed for our visit on Thursday. He can convince me...
  25. Re: Possible Cushing's, need advice on next steps (Jordan) 8.5 y/o male Boxer

    Hey, All...I'm back again.

    You're gonna love this. We had to take Jordan in to the ER vet yesterday, and since fell out with the one near home, we had to go to the only other one we know, which is...
