    Re: Corona Virus Pandemic Preparedness

    So far, so good here. We have managed to dodge this bullet! But Jess, Sigi and the kids are in Germany for 10 days. Hopefully they don't bring anything back with them. I'm picking them up at JFK...

    Re: My big boy Gable

    You've been gone nine months yesterday, Gabe...and I still miss you so much. I talk to you and Lena every day. I look for you both in old photos, just to see you again. It's tomato season and every...
  4. Re: New User Here Seeking Advice About My Cushings Boxer

    Hello and welcome from me, too. I agree with Leslie. Please stop the Vetoryl. Stopping won't hurt him, but continuing it could. That starting dose was high to begin with, if he does indeed have...

    Re: Cushings? Or something else? (Sweet Mini has gone to heaven)

    I'm so sorry, Lilly...it's devastating when we try so hard and nothing seems to work. We can only do what we can do with the knowledge we have. Mini knew how much you loved her, and she loved you...

    Re: Cushings? Or something else?

    If she were my dog, I would stop the Vetoryl. I stopped it many times with Gable if he wasn't feeling well, and then restarted when he seemed better. I didn't know better with Lena. If I did, I...
  7. Re: Signs of low cortisol?

    If he's still taking Vetoryl, I would stop for a few days and see if that makes a difference.
  8. Re: 10 year old female beagle just diagnosed with Cushings

    I had a garden flag made of Gable with snow on his face and in the background. It was too late for this year, but it will be hanging in the front next Winter. He loved the snow so much and died...

    Re: Cushings? Or something else?

    Hi and welcome from me, too. I think Marianne is right that more testing should be done. If you have any recent blood work it would help to see the results. Only post the Highs and Lows with the...

    Re: New member - Staffie starting Vetoryl

    As Marianne said above, some dogs have both hypothyroidism and Cushing's. Gable had both. We started with the thyroid meds to see if that was what was causing his symptoms, but they continued. ...

    Re: New member - Staffie starting Vetoryl

    I would be watching him very, very closely, Sue. As closely as I watched Gable, he still crashed that one time and if I had not been paying attention to any little sign, it could've been an ER...
  12. Re: Lena, Teacup Poodle w/ adrenal tumor - Lena is now an angel

    Happy Birthday in Heaven, my precious. You would have been 22 years old today! When you died at almost 15, you were the oldest dog we ever had. Now Doree has surpassed you at 17 or 18. She has...

    Re: Suni

    Lena got very suspicious of anything I fed her after she started Vetoryl and I had to get creative, but Gabe was so easy. He ate anything and never noticed a pill or two or three in it. I was very...

    Re: New member - Staffie starting Vetoryl

    Hi and welcome to the forum. As Marianne mentioned, larger dogs sometimes need lower doses. My Gable was one of them. My avatar is my teacup Poodle, Lena, not Gabe (she was only 5lbs). Gable...

    Re: Joined Today

    I'm so sorry for your loss of dear, sweet Orlando. It hurts terribly.

    I lost my second cushpup in November and even though I know I did better this time around and gave him a few more years...
  16. Re: Lena, Teacup Poodle w/ adrenal tumor - Lena is now an angel

    I love that, Marianne...and I so hope it's true. I was just beginning to not cry every time I thought of her. I could talk about her and smile. Then Gable died and I'm back to crying again. And...

    My baby girl, it's been six years today. I think of you every day, and now Gable is with you for this anniversary in Heaven. I know you must be happy to have him with you, he missed you all these...

    Re: Labs are good, symptoms persist

    That sounds like a good plan. With all of her other issues and her age, I wouldn't put her through it either. With what I have learned on this forum, if I could go back, I don't think I would have...
  19. Re: Aloha from Hawaii - My 1st post - Navigating Ely's Cushings

    I would stop it, too. Starting up again at 5mg sounds good. Can you get a resting cortisol test done just to see what his levels are at? That is what I always did with Gable when this happened...

    Re: Sausage Dog with ? Cushings

    Welcome to the forum. Could you post any blood work she has had done here, please? Just the highs, lows with the reference ranges. You mention that she's been on steroids her whole life, is she...
  21. Re: Aloha from Hawaii - My 1st post - Navigating Ely's Cushings

    Gable was also hypothyroid and taking soloxine along with the vetoryl. We started thyroid meds before he was finally diagnosed with Cushing's. It took a while to get his hypothyroidism under...
  22. Re: Aloha from Hawaii - My 1st post - Navigating Ely's Cushings

    Hi and welcome from me, too. My Gable was very sensitive to the Vetoryl. He was 80lbs when finally diagnosed, but we started him on 40mg. He did okay for about a year, but then needed to stop and...

    Yes, that surprised me too, Leslie. But he seems to be over it. The funny thing is that the bladder issues he's been having since the summer disappeared when he got the virus! Weird....
