    Re: New to this Forum

    Hello and welcome to you and Yogi! If you’ve already done any reading here on our forum, you’re probably aware that Cushing’s can be a very difficult disease to definitively diagnose. Upon reading...
  5. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero new Cushing's diagnosis, weight loss??

    Dear Amy, thanks so much for this update although I know the news about the adrenal tumor is a worry, especially in view of Maggie’s weight loss and other issues. Under the circumstances, I think...

    Re: Bravecto & Milbemax

    Hello from me to you and Teddy! The 30 day test is generally performed one month after the start of medication. We’ve seen some vets vary the exact timing somewhat based on variables that are...

    Re: Holidays can be hard...

    Well, beloved K9C family, I’ve dusted off the doors to our holiday house and we’re officially open for business once again! It does feel a bit odd to be kicking off the northern hemisphere autumn...
  10. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero new Cushing's diagnosis, weight loss??

    I’m so relieved to hear that Maggie has been feeling better! I think you and the vet are doing exactly the right thing by pausing the Vetoryl and checking her labwork. Good job! And please do...

    Re: Newbie with questions.

    Hello, and welcome to you and your little girl! It’s great to hear that her fracture is healing nicely, and I hope to reassure you that if she indeed suffers from Cushing’s, waiting a few more weeks...
  12. Re: Hi! IÂ’m new to CushingÂ’s & really need some advice.

    Hi again, Kim! First of all, it sounds as though Archie has presented a lot of both medical and behavioral challenges during these past six years, and bless you for taking such good care of him. ...
  13. Re: Hi! IÂ’m new to CushingÂ’s & really need some advice.

    Kim, welcome to you and little Archie. There’s no need at all to apologize for the length of your post. We like to gain as much background info as possible, and Archie’s history is definitely quite...
  14. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero new Cushing's diagnosis, weight loss??

    I’m surely hoping that Maggie is feeling better today, but I think your decision to hold her medication and consult with the vet is very wise. The trembling and vomiting can both be signs that her...

    Re: New to Cushings

    Hi again, Karen, and that’s great that you’ve found a less expensive supply. Here’s one cautionary note, though — do check the expiration date of the medication when it arrives to make sure it is...
  16. Re: Adrenalectomy - our experience

    I am so deeply sorry for the loss of your precious girl, and especially in such a devastating way. I’m also sorry to be so late in writing to you, but somehow your post had escaped me until now. On...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Joan, my understanding is that for a dog dosed twice daily, you’d give the evening dose as usual prior to a morning pre-pill test. So if you didn’t give the evening dose prior to the 4.2 reading,...
  18. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    That’s pretty much what I had guessed — that the internist is basing this increase on Maggie’s extenuating circumstances. I can’t argue with that, especially since Dr. B agrees ;-). It’s very good...
  19. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero new Cushing's diagnosis, weight loss??

    Hello Amy, and welcome to you and little Maggie! You are exactly right that weight gain is the far more common Cushing’s symptom. However, my own Cushpup, a Labrador retriever, was also an...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Well darn :-((((. Honestly, Joan, if it was me, I’d probably discontinue the added 5 mg. again, at least until after you’re back from your trip. Gable has shown himself to be quite sensitive to...
  22. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    In Maggie’s case, since the ACTH is being used for monitoring purposes rather than diagnostic purposes, the lab’s printed norms may or may not be relevant to her situation. Many times, the printed...
  23. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    Evaluating the results of an ACTH stimulation test can be very confusing, that’s for sure. This is especially true because the test can be used either for diagnostic purposes prior to beginning...
  24. Re: 15 yr old Maltese just diagnosed. So overwhelmed! Vetoryl questions

    The standard recommendation is *not* to increase a Vetoryl dose until the first month of treatment has been completed. This is because cortisol levels can continue to drift downward during that...
