    Re: Tribute to my dear sweet Annie

    Annie certainly was a challenge for all of us and she was so blessed to have had you for a mom. You left no stone unturned until the right diagnosis was confirmed. Annie taught us a lot and she was...
  2. Re: Hi! IÂ’m new to CushingÂ’s & really need some advice.

    Hi, Kim, and a belated welcome to you. Marianne and Leslie have given you some good information but I wanted to share some information on acth stimulation test results as it relates to sedation. We...

    Re: rapid breathing?

    Are you checking the respiration rate when your dog is at rest? I have done that a lot with my dogs with congestive heart failure. You can either watch their chest rise and fall or what I do is put...
  5. Re: 13 year old dog with "Cushings Light" (words the vet used)

    Hi, Julie, and a belated welcome to you and Jackson.

    I just wanted to mention that a peer reviewed study and the vast experience of renowned veterinary teaching institutions across the globe...
  6. Re: Buddy - How long should it take for the Vetroryl to reduce the symptoms?

    Hi and a belated welcome from me too.

    I went through your posts and there are some inconsistencies that I would like to clarify. You mention that Buddy's only symptom of cushing's is his...

    Hi, Alice, and a belated welcome to your little Yorkie.

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Joan, over supplementation of thyroid hormone would not have a direct effect on lowering cortisol per se; however, hyperthyroidism can put a lot of stress on the body so Gabel may not have had much...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Joan, I think the mystery of the continued drinking and peeing is solved. It is most likely the over-supplementation of thyroid meds that flipped Gable from "hypo" to "hyper"thyroid. I think the...

    Re: Holidays can be hard...

    Marianne, I am just seeing the sad news of your mom's passing and I am so terribly sorry for your loss. There are no words of comfort that can ease the pain of losing the one person in your life who...

    Re: LDDS Results shows Cushings

    Hi Lynn. I've just read your thread and have a few things I wanted to share with you. You can find my comments in red text below. Hopefully I have answered some of your questions.
  12. Re: new to cushing

    Jim, like Lori, I am wondering if subsequent blood and urine tests were done after the ones posted. I've had dogs with end stage kidney disease and have a recently diagnosed cushingoid dog whose...
  13. Re: new to cushing

    Hi and a belated welcome to the forum. I'll try not to repeat what others have already shared so I will keep my comments focused on things that have not been covered in detail. Boxers are definitely...
  14. Re: The Invisible Emotional Burden of Caring for a Sick Pet

    Most of us make provisions for our dogs in the event we die before them and anybody who tells me that I need to put my dog down because they have a chronic illness, cannot be trusted to care for my...
  15. Re: Update long overdue. Athena our Silver Lab

    Hi and welcome back. I am so incredibly sorry to hear of Axle's passing. My heart broke and tears fell as I read about your final moments with your precious boy.

    I see that back in September,...

    Re: Help! I’m worried.

    Hi Bellasmom and a belated welcome to you and precious Bella. Most dogs tolerate trilostane quite well but you just never know until you put that pill in their mouth and get through an uneventful. ...
  17. Re: Re-testing my new pup for Cushings and correct dosage of Vetoryl

    Koffee, I wanted to mention that treatment for heartworm a lot of times takes two months to resolve so if Rocky was at the shelter for only a few weeks, I would not assume he is cured. Your vet...
  18. Re: Re-testing my new pup for Cushings and correct dosage of Vetoryl

    Hi Koffee and welcome to you and your new precious bundle of joy. Isn't it funny how we connect so strongly with a dog simply by looking at a picture? Leslie can tell you all about those long...

    Re: Cody diagnosed with cushings

    I am happy to hear that you will be getting a consult with a specialist. I am from So Cal and miss having so many specialists within an hour's drive. I remember when there was nothing in Murrieta...

    Re: Cody diagnosed with cushings

    Thank you for posting those test results. It sure looks like a clear progression of cushing's to me and suspect that if you were to repeat the LDDS today, it would most likely be positive. FYI, MCH...

    Re: Cushing's treatment and cardio meds

    I believe Cardisure is the equivalent of Vetmedin in the U.S. and the active ingredient in both is pimobendan. Taking his drug concurrently with Vetoryl is not a problem. It is most likely the ace...

    Re: Mia-3 year old poodle recently diagnosed

    Thank you for the update. It sounds like you are on the right track but because you are still seeing symptoms and the pre Vetoryl cortisol is higher than it should be, a dosing increase may be a...

    Re: Maximum dose of Vetoryl

    I share Marianne's great concern that your dog has been steadily increased to such a jaw dropping high dose without the benefit of an acth stimulation test to justify those increases. I am dismayed...
