    Re: Tipper - adrenal tumor/breathing issues

    Thanks for the info on the hawthorn - I want some for myself and give it a try again. I used the powder form before and think the organic liquid might be better effective. We'll see - Cinder's...

    Re: Tipper - adrenal tumor/breathing issues

    Glad Hawthorne is working for Tipper - I tried it on myself some time back and it did nothing for me. Maybe I'm not giving myself enough or the right kind. What kind and dose are you giving?

    I am a nurse so I am pretty much on top of over use of antibiotics. And too many do use antibiotics willy-nilly. I have also been a victim of vet misdiagnosing another puppy we had with bowel...

    Someone mentioned the pepcid before and I may think about that also. I gave her a pepcid years ago when we were going through a lot of digestive problems and she was bringing up bile, but it didn't...

    Cinder was doing well on the Trilostane, but had a small amount of digestive upset with gas and maybe 30cc of loose stool and possibly discomfort. I have never seen her act like she was...

    Re: Tipper - adrenal tumor/breathing issues

    I agree with Squirt's mom - if giving fish oil you do need extra vitamin E unless you are feeding grass fed meat. Most fish oils come with some kind of preservative like Vit. E but not enough. Then...

    Just to update you all - So far Cinder is taking the trilostane twice a day since Tuesday and she had one dose on Monday - so far so good. The only thing I have noticed is that she has decreased her...

    I feel pretty good about this whole thing so far. But remain ever watching. Being a nurse I know how things can go south fast. So 3 doses is nothing yet.

    I don't think Cinder has IBD she just got into some really bad compost full of parasites I think, but the Tylan did a wonderful job of clearing the bowel infection up.
