  2. Re: Medication not working on symptoms anymore but cortisol levels ok?

    I always ask for copies of test results. YOU a pay for them and I believe have a right to them. Some vets act like you wouldn’t understand them anyway but it’s not at all difficult to learn what they...

    Re: REMY diagnosed last week

    We just got the test results from Remy’s first follow up ACTH. Pre 6.1 and Post 7.6. Prior to Vetoryl he was 7.8 and 24. So we will stick with the 10 mg dose once a day for the time being as it...

    Re: REMY diagnosed last week

    Day 4 and no problems at 10 mg. Can’t say I’ve noticed any changes in Remy’s behavior either. He was panting quite a bit last night so I turned the overhead fan on and that seemed to help. Water...

    Re: REMY diagnosed last week

    Thanks Marianne. Remy is on day 2 of the Vetoryl and I’m sticking to the 10 mg for now until we see how he does. So far he seems just fine. I did realize I don’t have any prednisone here apparently....
