  1. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you for the quick response, Marianne. This is worrying indeed. (I had hoped it might be something we could address with adjusting her trilostane dosage). We will ask the vet about this...
  2. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    PS. For reference, she is breathing quite rapidly at app 60 bpm even when resting.
  3. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Hello Marianne and all,
    Checking in to get your advice on a new disturbing development with little Mia. She’d been doing so well on trilostane with her fur growing back etc (though still some...
  4. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thanks, Jonathan. And I 100% agree with all the support here - I honestly don’t know what we would’ve done so far without all the insights and support from this group! We are so grateful.
  5. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    The vet agreed with your recommendation so we started Mia on 15 mg in am and 7.5 mg in pm yesterday. We’re keeping a close eye - so far so good. (She seemed to sleep better her first night and...
  6. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you for the good advice. Her weight has actually gone back up a little to 8.8 kg, which is great. We will propose your idea to the vet tomorrow. Hopefully, he will agree and it will help. ...
  7. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you, Marianne. Your advice is helpful, as always. We now have a vet appointment Friday and will ask him about upping dose and/or frequency. We do have a supply now of compounded trilostane...
  8. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Hi Marianne - You mentioned that we may need to consider a slight increase in dosage if the CC doesn’t improve, and I’m wondering when we should discuss that with our vet? The reason I ask is that...
  9. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thanks, Marianne! Yes, the vet says to continue what we’re doing. It’s great to know the “translation” since that’s how I always see the numbers represented and, more importantly, to know we’re...
  10. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    We finally got Mia’s cortisol test results back today: It came down from 173 (2 months ago) to 111 (after 30+ days of Vetoryl)! I know it’s not accurate like an ACTH stim test, but still seems like...
  11. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you, Marianne! We are so grateful that sweet Mia is doing better and are keeping fingers crossed that she continues along this path. Your message is very reassuring about the liver enzymes -...
  12. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thanks Squirt's mom. I never understood myself why my messages came out like that with the A at the end of Cushing's.
    So, it's been over 30 days and we are so pleased/relieved to report that little...
  13. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you, Laura. That makes sense, using coconut oil in conjunction with other stuff.
  14. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you, Marianne! We’ve ordered one of the shampoos (and wipes) and hope that our vet will agree it’s ok to bathe her by the time it arrives. Don’t quite understand why he’s so against it and...
  15. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Hi there, we took Mia for her check up and blood work today. She seems to be doing well on Vetoryl (day 21 now, more energy, less water intake) but still awful Cc eruptions and other skin infection....
  16. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you! I wasn’t sure if I posted the pictures correctly and who could view the album (welcome your suggestions if I should’ve posted elsewhere...still don’t quite get the hang of some of the...
  17. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you for the words of encouragement and the suggestions! Not on FB, unfortunately, but you both have shared some good ideas here. We will give some of them a try (whenever we can get these items...
  18. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Hi there,
    Quick update on Mia’s situation: we are on day 9 of Vetoryl (15 mg from a split capsule) now. The good news is that she’s had no adverse side effects and seems to have regained quite a...
  19. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thanks for the great tip/contact! Will definitely keep you posted...and will no doubt continue to have more questions too. So glad I “found” you all.
  20. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you for all the thoughtful feedback. Sounds like you had to make some agonizing decisions; I am so sorry. We are at that same point right now: she is disappearing before our eyes (we are up...
  21. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you for your reply. It’s so helpful to have someone knowledgeable to bounce things off of. .I feel like we are flying blind here and are grasping at straws, anything to alleviate little mias...
  22. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Hi Marianne,
    The vet just contacted us and said they got Vectoryl and would like to start Mia on it ASAP! My concern is that they only have 30 mg capsules (leftover from another patient, they...
  23. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    Thank you, Marianne! Showing this info to our vet and seeing what may be possible sounds like a good first step. Fingers crossed.

    Hi everyone,
    Our vet has just told us that our sweet little Mia (11 year old jack russell terrier mix) likely has cushings. She started having the classic symptoms in November and has deteriorated...
