  1. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's — Rosie has crossed Rainbow Bridge

    Yes, that's it exactly. We will accept it in time, I hope.
  2. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's — Rosie has crossed Rainbow Bridge

    Thank you all for your kind words.
    I do blame myself for not putting her life jacket on her. I knew how wobbly she was, and I considered putting it on, but I was in the last stages of exhaustion, ...

    Re: Checking in for August 2019

    My beloved Rosie has died. I updated her thread. I dont know how to update the title of the thread, currently it is "Rosie has pituitary cushings".
  4. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    Rosie has crossed the rainbow bridge. It was nothing to do with the Cushings, I hasten to assure anyone reading this. She would have been 17 on July 29th; she had become quite weak and wobbly. I...
  5. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    Rosie just had her 16th birthday on 7/29. She is still off the Trilostane. A few months ago she seemed very stiff and arthritic, got knocked off her legs easily, never wagged her tail and didnt seem...
  6. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    I stopped the Trilostane completely in March of this year and 7 months later Rosie is doing fine. She has a better coat than I have seen on her since this Cushings journey began, and she is neither...
  7. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    Yes, Dr M did mention the possible effects on the adrenals, I just presented it as "other scenarios" for the sake of brevity (my typing finger was getting tired). :)

    I'm just going to keep a close...
  8. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    In late Nov/early Dec, I felt I was seeing signs that Rosie's dosage, which she has been on since diagnosis July '13, might be too much for her now. Frequent vomiting of mucus and bile (not food) and...
  9. Re: Molly, 13 yr, shih tzu - lhasa aspo - Molly has passed

    I just read Molly's final chapter. I'm so sorry.
  10. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    I have used it twice. There was a t-storm while I was going to get it and by the time I gave Rosie a dose, the storm had pretty much passed. But she was quite frantic when I got home, and the Sileo...
  11. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    The vet called me today. She as actually used Sileo on her own dog this past 4th of July with good effect, and they have it on hand at the practice. After she got my email, she spoke to the vets at...
  12. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    That's what I figured, with it being so new. I did try searching the forum, too, so I knew there have been no posts about it yet.

    The non-sedative feature really appeals to me, because I have had...
  13. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    Okay, I guess not.


    I sent an email to Rosie's vet today, asking her to lookm into it and give me advice. I'll post any updates here.
  14. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    I just became aware of a new drug for dogs like my Rosie who have such a hard time with thunderstorms and all related phenomena.

    Sileo from Zoetis

    I am planning to ask Rosie's vet about it, but...

    Re: Bubs the boxer

    It isn't a side effect, it's an overdose. Vetoryl should be stopped immediately, and if the overdose is severe enough, a rescue dose of prednisone may be needed. I would say take your dog to the vet...

    Re: Kelso has Cushing's

    I think it is better to start with too low a dose than too high. The worst that can happen with too low a dose is that after allowing time for the medicine to reach its full effect (about 30 days)...
  19. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    Wose than ever, I'm afraid. I now have to sedate her every night. She starts to get anxious as soon as it gets dark, and goes into full blown panic as soon as I go to bed. I've tried everything I or...
  20. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    Rosie's latest ACTH results:

    Pre: 4.4 ug/dL
    Post: 4.8 ug/dL

    Since her symptoms are well controlled, she will stay at her original trilostane dosage, 10mg twice a day.

    Full info:

  21. Re: Newbie here with questions - Dudley has peacefully passed

    So sorry to hear your sad news. It's such a hard decision to make. Hugs and sincere sympathy.
  22. Re: Rosie has pituitary Cushing's

    Yes, it cleared here, too, thank goodness.

    So far, the Trazadone doesn't seem to be the "magic bullet" we would like. The nights have been better, I can't deny, but she seems more sleepy in the...
  23. Re: Molly, 11 yr, shih tzu - lhasa aspo, cushing diagnosis

    Good news is so nice to hear! I'm happy for you and Molly!
  24. Re: Newbie here with questions

    We will be thinking of you and Dudley; we understand so well what you're going through, and we're here if you need us.

    Re: New Here - Honey has crossed the bridge

    I'm so sorry for your misery. I understand so well I am crying as I type this, as I'm sure others are, too. Hugs all around.
