    Re: Cushings takes Jasmine

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Our Cushing's journey started 4 years ago this week with Lena's diagnosis. We lost her just a couple of months later, February 19. It's hard, especially around the...

    Re: Advice for a newly diagnosed pooch in the UK

    I'm so glad that Leslie said that because that is exactly what I was thinking. Lou is your dog, you are in charge of his healthcare, and you pay the vet, who should know that stopping the medication...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    I'll try that and see.

    Yep, I feel the same. Gable is going to be 11 this year. Doree, our teacup chihuahua is 15 or 16 with knees that pop in and out and a grade 3 heart murmur, she's already...

    Vet said everything is perfect...you know I don't really trust that they know what they're doing. He's been chomping on the dried leaves outside, that could be irritating. I just don't know...

    ALK 311 ref range: 5-131
    PSL 262 ref range: 24-140

    Re: Holidays can be hard...

    She always says the right things...even in her poems. I find great comfort in her posts and in her faith that we will be with them again.

  8. Re: I知 new! 6yr old Rottie/Catahoula mix recently diagnosed and having quite the tim

    All of a sudden I realized he was drinking a lot again. Being a Cushing's mom twice now, I am on high alert for all the signs. I almost raised his Vetoryl because there was wiggle room with his...
  9. Re: I知 new! 6yr old Rottie/Catahoula mix recently diagnosed and having quite the tim

    Hi Jenni, and welcome from me too. Poor Eli! I'm no expert, but that starting dose was pretty high. My Gable was about 80 pounds when we first started him on the Vetoryl at 40mgs. He did well for...
  10. Re: Holiday Fundraisers for the TIpper and Squirt Care for Cushing's Fund

    Leslie, the link wasn't working for me during the day, but I just went on and ordered. I think this is a lovely way to raise money for the cause! I'm going to order from Lynch Creek as well.

  12. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero - Sweet Maggie has passed

    Yes, it is hard to believe that they are gone. I can't believe we are coming up to four years since Lee left me. Sometimes it seems like yesterday, and then others it feels like a lifetime since I...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    Thanks, Marianne...I'll keep giving him the 5mg twice a day and see it helps. If not, I'll go back to the 10am and 5pm. I think I have wiggle room with that 2.8 resting cortisol result.

    He...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    It's killing me, Marianne. I'm getting all kinds of flashbacks to Lena.

    He's such a good boy, he doesn't deserve this. He keeps looking at me like he's wondering why I can't make him feel...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    It was 2.8 and he had his 10mg pill in the morning, probably around 5:30 or 6:00, Marianne, and we did the test around 6:00 or 6:30. I had to clean up the mess before I took him.

    I am shaking,...

    Help! I don't know what to do. His stomach issue is better, but he is drinking like crazy. He peed in the house and then stepped in it and walked all over the house. With that resting cortisol...
  17. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero - Sweet Maggie has passed

    It never stops hurting, but it does hurt less with time. I still cry a lot, but not all the time like I did after she left me. It will be four years in February. There isn't a day that I don't...

    Never, Judi...I still have days where I can't speak about her without crying. And i want so badly to talk about her, to remember, to hear other people's memories. But because I wind up crying,...
  20. Re: 12y/o JRT/Spanish Bodeguero - Sweet Maggie has passed

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your sweet girl. I wish that I had been strong enough to put my precious Lena to sleep that last night. Instead she died without me and I regret that every day.

    You are so right, Leslie! And I am an old b____, too! But he doesn't need me to do anything for him. He lives alone and can get up and go wherever he wants, whenever he wants. Someday I will let...
