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

    I am so sorry about your mom, Joan. Even when a loved one is so ill it is still hard to let them go. My dad had suffered with one thing after another for years and I knew he was so tired but when...
  2. Re: I’m new! 6yr old Rottie/Catahoula mix recently diagnosed and having quite the tim

    When you see the same signs you noticed before starting treatment that is a good indication the cortisol is rising again. Signs like excess drinking, ravenous appetite, excess urination, heavy...
  3. Re: Please help-dog stopped breathing and went limp last Saturday-thought was dead.

    To post test results simply post the abnormal values on the test, sometimes called a super chem, that shows things like BUN, CHOL, ALP, T4, etc. Be sure to include normal ranges and the little...
  4. Re: Any experience with Cushings and thyroid problems?

    Hi and welcome to you and your baby!

    Low thyroid is common with Cushing's. But it is rarely true hypothyroidism but rather a condition called Sick Euthroyid Syndrome that is caused by the...
  5. Re: Please help-dog stopped breathing and went limp last Saturday-thought was dead.

    Hi and welcome to you and Widget!

    I agree with Joan...do not give any more of the Vetoryl for now. The loose stool and lethargy are both signs that the cortisol has gone too low which is a...

    There is not enough money in existence nor threats strong enough nor reasons compelling enough to cause me to go back to work in a school setting nor send my child back to a school setting. Period....

    Re: Koli - 9 year old Slovensky Cuvac

    Hi Karl,
    Welcome to you and Koli,

    First how is your baby girl doing? I am VERY concerned that Vetoryl was started without any diagnostic testing. In addition I am very concerned about the dose...

    Re: Skylar - loving ten year old rescue

    Hi Lindsay,

    Welcome to you and Skylar!

    I have a concern about the timing of the medication. You said -

    I am reading this to mean that you give the Vetoryl at night and only putting one...
  11. Re: Yohnny 11 year old Shih-tzu with Cushing-like problems

    Great update on Yhonny! Always nice to hear good news! The CoQ10 should be fine to use and can help with any heart issues, along with other conditions. Here is a link to an article written by Drs....
  12. Re: Cushing's Resolving??

    Dear Mark,

    I am so sorry to learn about your precious Kiwi. No matter the circumstances we are never ready for that day to come when our babies must leave us. It is my firm belief that we will...
  13. Re: Stella - 10 year old Corgi/American Eskimo mix

    What a wonderful tribute to your precious Stella. I could feel the love and joy and anguish as I read. There is no doubt your precious girl is watching you with such pride and love. Thank you so...

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your sweet Cesar. :( No matter what is going on, we are never ready to face this day when they must leave us for a while. Yes, for a while....
  15. Re: Stella - 10 year old Corgi/American Eskimo mix

    I am so sorry for the loss of your precious Stella. No words can take away the pain you are both feeling now....I know. That old saying that time heals all wounds is not right but time does give...
  16. Re: Not convinced my dog doesn’t have Cushings!

    60mg is still too high based on the latest studies which say large dogs, over 66lbs (30kg), should start at no more than 0.5mg per lb. I would have wanted a starting dose no higher than 40mg, 30mg...
  17. Re: Stella - 10 year old Corgi/American Eskimo mix

    Prayers rising for Stella as well as the both of you. Please keep us updated and know we are beside you all the way.

  20. Re: UTI + Overnight blindness + then sudden dementia like symptoms + Cushings dx

    I agree with trying get an ortho vet to take a look. If there is an IMS nearby I would get them onboard as well. It does sound as if something is going on with either the spine, hips, or perhaps...

    Re: Angel Pancreatitis Help Please

    As tough as it is to make such a decision, I would do the same in your shoes. One of the hardest, most painful, things for me to learn was that there are limits to what I can, and should, do to...

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

    I know how you feel, Joan. Squirt has been gone 6 years this month and every special day is still bittersweet. The joy and the heart-ache sit equally at times and at others tilted heavily. If we...
