    Re: My big boy Gable

    I suppose it’s possible, although if he otherwise seems fine, the soft poops could be from something else. In her old age, Luna’s poops are often much softer now, seemingly regardless of what food...

    Re: New member - Next step questions

    Hi again! Yes, that ALP elevation is really minimal in terms of what we typically see with Cushpups. Sometimes the elevation will even be in the “thousands.” As far as the other blood counts, I...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Joan, that’s a marker for pancreatitis. I believe Gable’s result is high enough that pancreatitis would definitely be suspected in a dog who exhibits consistent symptoms. But if Gable seems well, I...

    Re: New member - Next step questions

    Awwwww, what a handsome boy — welcome to you both! I’m afraid I must be brief in this first reply, but based on the info this far, my suggestion would be to go ahead and proceed with the surgery on...
  5. Re: Supplements for Cushings- What's Working/ What's Not?

    So glad to see you made it here! Welcome to both you and your sweet boy. I am not a vet, but I don’t think there should be any problem with resuming the Dasuquin once again, alongside the other...

    Re: Max test results help

    I think your vet is “right on” with this assessment. It does make his plan of action clear, and it does indeed reflect the treatment trends we’ve been seeing. I’m so glad to know that he’ll be...
  7. Re: Cushing’s diagnosos 14+ yr old Vizsla - Vetoryl start dose?

    So glad to get this good report on Rumor! Those initial testing results are certainly excellent. If you want to try dropping the dose, you can do so in an experiment to see whether she continues to...

    Re: Max test results help

    Elizabeth, thanks for all these updates! I’ve really been mulling over Max’s situation and that partially accounts for my delayed reply (along with some darn internet issues...). For the most part,...

  10. Re: Lena, Teacup Poodle w/ adrenal tumor - Lena is now an angel

    Joan, I totally support your decision to stay as safe as you can, especially given Josh’s extreme vulnerability. I know it will be hard to upset your sister, but truly, what *is* she thinking under...

    Re: Max test results help

    It’s me, back again for a quick moment. I really do think you’ve done a good job of identifying your central questions, and I still don’t have a lot to add. I’ve spent a few minutes trying to find...

    Re: Max test results help

    I’m so glad to hear that your appointment has been moved up! I think you’ve got all the important points already covered— good job! But I’ll continue to give it some thought and check back again by...
  13. Re: Lena, Teacup Poodle w/ adrenal tumor - Lena is now an angel

    Oh Joan, sending you hugs and my warmest thoughts. I know you’ve written for quite a while that Marie was not well, but I am so sorry for yet another loss. Peace be with you, my friend. And yes, I...
  14. Re: Cushing’s diagnosos 14+ yr old Vizsla - Vetoryl start dose?

    I’m kind of an outlier here in that I don’t really disagree with your new vet’s theory about waiting a bit longer for that first monitoring test, as long as there are no indications of overdose. ...
  15. Re: Cushing’s diagnosos 14+ yr old Vizsla - Vetoryl start dose?

    Basically this sounds like an encouraging report to me :-). I hope Rumor’s monitoring testing goes very smoothly. Just another reminder: she needs to take her Vetoryl dose along with a normal...

    New member - 14.5 y/o Vizsla

    Hello, and welcome to you and your girl! I noticed that you had posted your note as a reply on another Vizsla parent’s thread. I’ve left a copy of your note on that thread, but I‘ve also moved a...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    You know Joan, at this stage with Gabie, I think that’s the most important part of your whole report. Was that a pre-pill cortisol reading? If so, then I especially think that’s just fine. And we...
  18. Re: Please help-dog stopped breathing and went limp last Saturday-thought was dead.

    Hello and welcome from me, too! I’m so glad you found your way here to begin posting. Thanks for adding those test results. From what I’m seeing, her initial diagnostic LDDS results were...

    Re: Skylar - loving ten year old rescue

    Hello again, and I’m sorry to have been delayed in getting back to you. By now, you may have gone ahead with the dosing increase, and if so, I hope that all is well. However, I have to say that I...

    Re: Koli - 9 year old Slovensky Cuvac

    Hi again, Karl, and I hope that things are going well for you and Koli. I think you’d said that her specialty appointment is scheduled for Monday — I’m sure that day can’t come too soon! We’ll all...
  21. Re: Cushing’s diagnosos 14+ yr old Vizsla - Vetoryl start dose?

    Hi again, Ken. From the reaction you’re describing, I think it’s fine to stick with the 40 mg. until Rumor is tested. And I just want to make sure you’ve been advised to give Rumor her Vetoryl...
  22. Re: Cushing’s diagnosos 14+ yr old Vizsla - Vetoryl start dose?

    I wanted to first start off in total agreement with what Lori suggested above. The two electrolytes that you’re most concerned about in relation to Vetoryl are postassium and sodium. Those values...

    Re: Koli - 9 year old Slovensky Cuvac

    Hi again, Karl. By now, you’ve probably had the chance to research some of these options yourself. But I’ll go ahead and add a few thoughts, as well.

    First, as you know, the primary goal of...

    Gosh Kathy, I’d be so conflicted, too, if I were you. I’d really be tossing and turning at night!!

    The thing that seems especially scary to me is how much the researchers still don’t know re:...

    Hi Kathy, and thanks so much for your update although of course I wish the news was better. One day continues to blend into another for me here. We stay in the house except for dog walking, grocery...
