  1. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    He had a urinalysis done the same time as his blood work, but not a urnine culture. That might be my next time.
    Apart from the drinking and peeing, he is hungry. Constantly licking the floor looking...
  2. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    I think some vets in Canada were doing a 1 hr and 2 hr post draw with the synthecyn. Mine only ever did a 2 hr post draw. I don't know the protocols regarding the different stim agents, I'm only...
  3. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    He is doing fantastic, has absolutely no signs of over suppression. Not now, not when he was tested, not ever, in the almost 4 years he's been being medicated. He is, however, already showing the...
  4. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    I'm so sorry to see how many have passed. Heartbreaking.

    Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since I've been on here. (There was a guy:mad:)
    The past year has been a bit of a roller coaster...
  5. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    Thanks for pointing that out about Vet RX. I thought I had looked closely enough at it. Ah well, back to the drawing board I guess.
    Universal Pet Meds is canadian. I have used them before.

    My vet...
  6. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    Diamond Back, whom I have been using for about a year now, without a problem, is apparently aware of the situation. They said they are working with Health Canada to be allowed to export pet meds...
  7. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    Sorry to not get back sooner.
    No worries, I was not offended by any comments, I just wanted to clarify that I had not seen any negatives in Junior when I last stim tested him.

    Heads up to anyone...
  8. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    Just to clarify, I took Junior in for his last stim test because he was due. I would have taken him in Nov, but the vet's office couldn't fit me in.
    I didn't seek the test because I felt there was...
  9. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    An update on Junior, and perhaps a warning. It seems cortisol can continue to drop even after a month.

  10. Re: After 4 weeks on trilostane – insight on anxiety needed

    As Junior's cortisol levels have come down, I have noticed an increase to his anxiety. I don't think it's a coincidence. I believe it has to do with there no longer being available a dump of cortisol...
  11. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    Merry Christmas to all the wonderful angels on here. I hope the holidays bring you and yours peace.

    Re: New To Forum - Keesh is crossing over

    Oh Judi, I'm so sorry to hear this. Keesh is a wonder dog, and we have all been lucky to have known him, through you.
    He is forever grateful, for all the love you have shown him.

  13. Re: Molly, 10 yr, shih tzu - lhasa aspo, cushing diagnosis

    I had a dog in the beginning stages of renal failure. I searched everywhere for a decent food. I finally settled on this one, because I found it to be the only semi decent food with low phosphorus. I...
  14. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    Has anyone else noticed their dog visibly age quicker after being diagnosed with cushings? Junior hasn't developed any new health issues, but his muzzle has gone grey over the last month. His dad is...

    Re: GSD mix with cushings

    Welcome to the forum. I'm curious as to how you are cutting the dose in half. Did you get 30mg vetoryl, or will you only be giving it once a day instead of twice. You cannot open the capsules.
  16. Re: Chief - German Shepherd Dog, 10 yrs old

    I read back through your thread. There is no mention of acth results any where. The fact that Chief's fur grew back, and his bloodwork is normal, does NOT point to cushings. Did you ever try the...
  17. Re: Chief - German Shepherd Dog, 10 yrs old

    I am in Ontario. I use Diamondback for my trilostane. They will not compound an amount too close to what is available as vetoryl, so you would have to change the dose somewhat if you want to use...

    Re: New To Forum

    Hi Judi, glad to hear Keesh is still doing well. I don't know if this is an issue with him, but one of my dogs kept losing weight. She was always pretty hyper, but after major changes in the...

    Re: What next?!!!

    Hi Pam, welcome to the forum. How much does he weigh, and how much vetoryl is he getting? Anytime a dog is not eating, is vomiting, lethargic, or has diarehha, vetoryl should be withheld. It could be...

    Re: Loving with tears

    Hi, welcome to the forum. I don't know what blood work you have had done, but I would check the thyroid before moving to a cushings diagnosis. It is also a good idea to have a urine culture done to...
  21. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    I thought I'd do a summary of Junior's journey for those who are newer to the forum, as he is a success story.
    Junior was diagnosed at the age of 5. Symptoms were excessive drinking, peeing, and...
  22. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    I just had another acth done, this time sending it out to a lab, instead of doing it in house. Drum roll please….

  23. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    Yep, he always gets it right after his meal, and the timing of the tests is always the same.

    Re: 9 Year Old Maltese with Cushings

    Hi Kenny, I hope you are able to get answers from more blood work. I have a dog that used to get stinky irritated ears often. I found a product called sea greens, made by Holistic Blend. It helped...
  25. Re: Junior - 6 year old lab mix - Vetoryl twice daily

    Hi everyone. Junior has become a bit perplexing, or should I say the results of his acth's has. Junior himself is doing well I think.
