  1. Re: Cushing's and Diabetes, what's been your experience?

    It is very difficult for some of us to talk to the vets in such a manner....I was one of those who found it very uncomfortable. But I had to remind myself that my dog's life depended on me, on my...
  2. Re: I知 new! 6yr old Rottie/Catahoula mix recently diagnosed and having quite the tim

    Good for you, Mom! :cool::cool: Way to hold your ground! :cool::cool: I am also glad the vet was willing to listen and work with your wishes on the 30mg dose. She just may be surprised with the...
  3. Re: A Question on Side Effects of New Medication

    Oh Marie,

    I am just so sorry to hear this! :( I am sure you are devastated not only because of his loss but over the two losses in such a short span of time. You haven't really had time to heal...
  4. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    Marianne is nicer than I am. :D I would remind the vet that Louis is MY dog and that the vet works for me, not the other way around. As such I would tell him I was stopping the Vetoryl, not...
  5. Re: Cushing's and Diabetes, what's been your experience?

    I would have been out of my mind with those lab results from July! :eek::eek::eek::eek: Bless your heart having to see those results and then being told by the GP vet what you were. But Daisy's...

    Re: Holidays can be hard...

    Sweet Addy,

    It is always so good to hear from you! I love the story of Zoe's tree and fully believe she has had a hand in keeping it "alive". Not only did she need to see it she also knew you...
  7. Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    I agree...especially since you think the appetite was falling off before the antibiotic was started. If it were me I would leave the Vetoryl off completely until the AB course is finished and he's...

    Hi Daisy's mom,

    The problem with the LDDS is that it IS so sensitive. Cortisol will rise naturally in response to any streesor...even just visiting the...

    Re: Holidays can be hard...

    I hope next year is better for you as well, Marianne. These anniversaries are odd; one would think they would progress naturally from really bad to easier and easier as each one passes but for me...
  11. Re: Jasper (12 yr old Mini Schnauzer) is now at peace

    Sweet Tina,

    I understand that "brokenhearted existence" to the depths of my Soul. Very little time passes that I don't break down and sob for Squirt or Trinket or Brick or one or another baby who...

    Re: Medication decision

    Hi and welcome to you and Dora!

    Like Marianne, I would not be rushing into treatment with so few signs. The lessening or cessation of signs is one of the things we look to in order to see how the...
  13. Re: I知 new! 6yr old Rottie/Catahoula mix recently diagnosed and having quite the tim

    Hi Jenni,

    Welcome to you and Eli!

    Joan is correct that the starting dose is WAY too high. Recently there has been another change with using Vetoryl and it has to do with the size of the...

    I am so sorry for the things that have been happening with Cody! :( Bless your hear and his. I don't blame you one bit for not wanting to try the Vetoryl again. And I am NOT pushing you to treat...
  20. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero - Sweet Maggie has passed

    Hi Karen,

    What a great update on Annie! Acting 6 years younger is a real blessing and one I hope continues for some time to come. That gall bladder must have been making her feel pretty rotten...

    Would you mind sharing those ACTH results that were "above the ideal range but the vet wanted to keep her on the same dose" with us? Proper protocol says that if signs are not controlled then an...
