    Re: “Shivering from Vectoryl ?”

    I’m so glad she hasn’t suffered any ill effects thus far. That’s quite a leap from 10 mg. clear back up to 60 mg., though. When you say her test results were the same as before, do you mean the...

    Re: New to forum... difficult time

    Aww Kevin, I’m so sorry to hear about the circling and I understand why you’d be scared and worried right now. Whenever you feel like writing more, though, we’ll be right here for you. When we love...
  3. Re: New to the forum and seeking experienced assistance!

    Oh my. Gosh, I’m so sorry I was right about this. But hopefully there may be at least a little peace in knowing what the problem is so that you can focus 100% on loving him instead of chasing more...

    Re: New to forum... difficult time

    Hey Kevin, no I’m afraid I can’t add much to the UTI picture that you don’t already know. You’re so right, though, that the overlap of symptoms is a real bummer from a diagnostic standpoint. But...

    Re: New to forum... difficult time

    Hey Kevin, I just now saw your note on Betsy’s Mom’s thread reporting that you’re still not really seeing any improvement in Cooper. I want to talk a little more about the possibility of increasing...
  6. Re: New to site - questions on holistic vs traditional treatments

    Kevin, I just want to thank you for giving your thoughts to Betsy’s Mom. The things you have to say are just as valuable as anything I am writing. You’re speaking from your real-life experiences,...
  7. Re: New to the forum and seeking experienced assistance!

    I’ve just now gone back to re-read that thread myself, and I see some of our members talking about prednisone shrinking the tumor size for their dogs. So I may be wrong in saying that I think it...
  8. Re: New to the forum and seeking experienced assistance!

    As far as I know, radiation remains the most common intervention aimed at physically reducing the size of the tumor. The treatment doesn’t totally remove the tumor, but it reduces its size so as to...
  9. Re: New to the forum and seeking experienced assistance!

    And I'm back with a quick P.S. to what I wrote above. According to this article, an MRI is the preferred imaging for a pituitary macroadenoma, but a CT can also reveal the presence of an enlarging...
  10. Re: New to the forum and seeking experienced assistance!

    Well, um, then I'd have to venture a guess that your vet has not had a lot of experience with treating Cushing's dogs. Please bear in mind that I'm not a vet myself, but I did learn a lot about...
  11. Re: New to the forum and seeking experienced assistance!

    Dear Betsy’s Mom,

    Absolutely you are free to post on anybody’s thread! That’s the huge benefit of a forum like this — that all our members can share their support, thoughts and suggestions. What...
  12. Re: New to the forum and seeking experienced assistance!

    Here’s a tip to keep you from “timing out” when you’re in the middle of composing a reply. When you first log in, be sure to check the little “Remember Me” box right below your username and password....
  15. Re: New to site - questions on holistic vs traditional treatments

    OK, I’m back again. After reading through Betsy’s medical history and viewing her labwork, yes, she definitely looks like a Cushpup to me. The ultrasound report, elevated liver enzymes, abnormal...
  16. Re: New here, 11 year old sweet JRT mix just diagnosed with CushingÂ’s

    I’m so sorry to hear about this setback for Mia! One possible explanation that occurs to me is a blood clot in her lungs (“pulmonary thromboembolism”). Unfortunately, Cushing’s can make dogs more...

    Re: “Shivering from Vectoryl ?”

    For my Cushpup, the tremoring was focused across his shoulder blades and was most obvious when he was laying down, at rest. The tremors kind of came in waves and he really did look like a human does...
  18. Re: New to site - questions on holistic vs traditional treatments

    Yep, I see them -- good work! And it's been more than an hour since you posted them (although I have no idea what that warning means, either). Some typical Cushing's abnormalities there, for sure. ...

    Dear Jeanine,
