    Re: Adrenal Tumor with huge vena cava invasion!!

    It's heartbreaking to hear about Simba's situation. I truly hope that the surgeon will have some hopeful information and answers for you when he calls you this evening.

    It is good to hear though...
  2. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Hello Cushpup friends.

    Sorry for the lack of updates. Kobe just had his ACTH test last Wednesday, and I didn't get the results until Friday.

    I'm sorry I don't have the detailed test results...

    Re: Our 11 year old mutt, Penny

    Wow. Go Penny!

    I love hopeful stories like this. She has been through so much and yet she still keeps plugging along.

    The cruel tragedy of these amazing animals, friends, furry family...
  4. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Thanks Lori,

    Yes I do recall reading that, so Kobe has been taking Vetoryl with his breakfast.

    Today is his 4th consecutive dose. I do believe he's been perking up a little bit more each...
  5. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Indeed they do Lori. :)

    Hello Cushpup friends,

    Just wanted to give an update on Kobe's ultrasound. So it would appear that Kobe is one of "lucky" 15% that have an adrenal tumor. Well......

    Re: Apollo,missing you,1 year, 5 months

    Watched your video of Apollo's life.

    So sweet. I know I'm supposed to be tough grown man, but I was misty eyed by the end of the video.

    Glad you are able to share your love with another sweet...
  7. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Just FYI...

    Kobe did wind up eating his dinner of dry kibble last night. Much later than usual. After I primed the pump by giving him one of his favorite treats. Apparently he realized "Hey I'm...

    Re: Bailey and Friends

    It's good to hear that it's been downgraded to a Category 2.

    Still treacherous. But hopefully the damage won't be nearly as bad.

    The worst part will be its slow movement inland and dropping...
  9. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Thank Marianne.

    Yeah, I figured it may just be my hopeful imagination that he showed improvement on a single dose. Though he's definitely been sleepier today. That could be due to taking a...
  10. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Today Kobe is especially tired. He normally runs upstairs and to the door when the kids get off the bus to greet them. Tail a wagging, though he hasn't run around like a maniac in several months. ...

    Re: Cushing's and muscle wasting.

    I've noticed this too with my boy Kobe. He's always been a lean muscular dog, so much so that people would comment on how sturdy he was. But since his Cushing's set in (assuming that's what it is,...

    Re: My sweet little Gracie...

    Hi Gracie's dad.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. She was a gorgeous girl.

    I know how difficult a decision it had to be. We want our bundles of joy to stay with us as long as they possibly...
  13. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Oh okay. Thanks.

    My first inclination was to wait until after the Ultra-sound (indeed to even purchase the medication). But then after it turned out that it would be a couple weeks to get him...
  14. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Thank you Leslie,

    I'm wondering if anyone knows, since I start Kobe's Vetoryl tommorow the 12th, and he doesn't have his ultrasound until the 19th, would his adrenal glands appear normal by...
  15. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Hi friends,

    Just wanted to give an update on Kobe, who just turned 6 last Friday! By the way, I just realized I hadn't mentioned how his name is pronounced, since just about everybody pronounces...
  16. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    Happy 14th Ginger!!

    My boy Kobe will be celebrating his 6th in 2 days! On the 7th of September.

    Would love for him to make it to 14! Though boxers aren't the longest lived breed we're going...

    Re: Dachshund diagnosed and needs advice/thoughts

    Tucker's case sounds rather complex. I'm wondering if, since 10mg is the lowest dose available (although I read that 5mg is available in the U.S.) , if Tucker couldn't try 10mg every other day,...
  19. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Hi Leslie,

    Thank you for your perspective, and thank's for the quote from John O'Donohue. Very helpful.

    It's good to hear that it was nothing I might have done that would have caused Kobe...
  20. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Yeah I should probably keep better track of exactly how much he's drinking so I can tell for sure if it's more or less.

    I feel like he's been drinking less than he...
  21. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Thanks Marianne. I appreciate your insight. I'm hoping to be as prepared as possible before deciding what to do, so it's good to know I have time to get all the information where I'm comfortable...
  22. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Thanks Gingerbeer! Great to hear from another boxer parent. Don't they have the most adorable derpy faces? :D And ridiculous energy (when they aren't ill). Have you begun Mona on any...
  23. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    I dropped Kobe off for his appointment this morning. He's still at the vet. But I did pick up his blood work results.

    These are the results that were abnormal from 9/18/2017 and 8/18/2018, ...

    Re: Dachshund diagnosed and needs advice/thoughts

    Poor Tucker. It sounds like he's been through a lot.

    I hope you are able to get all the proper diagnosis's and treatments/medication doses so he can get back to his ole self.

    Reading about...
  25. Re: Vet thinks my boy has Cushing's. I'm very worried.

    Hi Lori,

    Thank you for your welcoming, and helpful input. Kobe is 94 pounds. He is taller and more solid than your average boxer, yet is still a bit overweight. At an earlier vet visit the...
