  9. Re: My dog has had Cushings for over a year...high dosage...would love information!

    For optimal results, blood pressure checks are done when no other tests are going to be performed, one wants their dog to be as calm as possible. When I had my Harley's BP checked, the tech would put...

  14. Re: Diagnostic Plan to Rule Cusahings In/Out

    I would hold off on performing all tests for Cushing's until the mass on the spleen is removed. One of our Moderators, Leslie, had a precious girl, Squirt, who tested positive for Cushing's because...
  15. Re: Diagnostic Plan to Rule Cusahings In/Out

    The UC:CR test should be 3 morning pooled urine samples taken at home and then refrigerated until the samples can be taken to the vet's office. A sterile urine sample is performed so there is no...
