  1. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    I’ve just had a chat with the vet, Louis’s cortisol levels have come back at just over 190 nmol/L. We’re going to increase the Vetoryl to 20mg to see if that has any effect. His weight loss is most...
  2. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Hi Marianne.
    I’m just waiting for the vet to ring with Lou’s latest cortisol result, it could be any time up until around 7 pm UK time before I hear from him. I’m expecting it to have gone up, I...
  3. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Louis has had a mega big pat and squeeze from you!
    I’m starting to get a bit of a theory and please point out any flaws in it as I’m thinking in very simple “I have no expertise” terms. When we...

    Hi all.
    Sorry I’ve not been on for a while, hope you and your fur babies are all doing ok?
    Louis’s arthritis has been taking centre stage so I’ve neglected to post on here for a bit. The response...
  5. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Hi everyone, hope everyone’s doing ok?
    Quick update. I spoke to the vet on Monday and he aired concerns that pain from the beginnings of arthritis was playing a part in Louis’s lethargy. I’d...
  6. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Thanks for the replies everyone. The base blood test came back fine, the liver enzymes that were raised are still coming down and no problems with his kidneys. The cortisol test hasn’t come back yet,...
  7. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Hi everyone. Long time no see! Hope everyone and their cushings babies are doing ok?
    I’ve been back to the vets with Lou this morning. He’s become very lethargic and disinterested over the last...
  8. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Hi all. The vet got back to me very quickly, Lou’s potassium sodium levels were fine so we’re sticking with the lower dose for a week. I think you’re right Leslie, that he’s a bit happier with the...
  9. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Quick Louis update! :-) We’ve been back to the vets this morning, a little earlier than planned because I’m not happy with him on the higher dose. The first couple of days he seemed to be doing ok,...
  10. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Hi all, sorry I’ve not been on lately.
    Louis had a good couple of days on his new dose but has been a bit more subdued over the weekend. He had a good day yesterday, now a bit quiet today. I think...
  11. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Morning. Yeah, I get what you’re saying and I’ll be watching him like a hawk!
    He’s had his first 40mg dose this morning, again with the salmon mixture and a bit of cheese. I wasn’t best pleased...
  12. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Evening all. Just had a phone call from the vet with Louis’s results and it’s good news! His cortisol levels have come down to 154 nmol/L, the acceptable range is 50-138 nmol/L so he’s only slightly...
  13. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Thanks Marianne!
    Vet visit this morning was very quick. Louis’s not had the full ACTH test but a pre pill cortisol test and they’ve sent a sample off for an enzyme check as well to see if those...
  14. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Hi Marianne.
    Thanks for the lovely welcome and the reply.
    I’ll start from the beginning then ��. Hope you don’t mind a good read!
    Early December last year I took him to the vet as his breathing...
