    Raising the dose to 10 mg in the morning and 5 mg at night is definitely worth trying, and testing in two weeks, I believe, is the way to go.

    I, too, agree that the dosing change is definitely worth a try. Certainly you canít go wrong by testing in two weeks. If he seems to be doing well at that point, though, you could decide then whether you wanted to go ahead and wait for one more week.

    Either way, good luck to you guys!

    How's Gable doing? And was a pre-pill test done?

    Still drinking and panting. He's eating fine and no stomach problems....We did the test Saturday morning and have not heard back yet.

    Test results:

    4.2 ref range 1.0 - 5.0

    Maybe he's just a big drinker. I looked back at the first post I did here when he was 7 and it looks like I had been worried about the way he breathes for a while, so I don't know.

    It was the other vet who left the message, my vet had already left. He'll probably call me today.

    The only other thing I can think of to try is getting Trilostane compounded into 1 mg capsules and than adding 1 mg to his nightly dose to see if this helps with the drinking/panting. The big drawback to this option is the cost of the constant monitoring for the additional 1 mg capsule.

    Hugs to you both, Lori
