Re: 13 y/o westie with cushings
 
I've got one more question to add to Susy's questions: What food is Snickers having with his Lysodren and particularly what is the fat content of the food?

A certain amount of fat/oil in the food is necessary to Lysodren to be absorbed well and we have seen cases of dogs on huge doses of Lysodren that is being given with with very low fat food and who have been apparently not responding to the Lysodren at all but when some oil or fat was added to the food the dog responded normally - to a normal dose.

Snickers has crossed the bridge. He was losing all strength in hind legs and very obviously in distress. He went very peacefully at the vets office. He was a wonderful dog and with a true heart of gold. Thank you to everyone for all your help. I will check back from time to time to see how everyone is doing.

Dee,

I am so, so sorry about your beloved Snickers.

You did everything a good Mom could have done and more.

Please remember WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.

Again, from the bottom of my heart, I am so sorry.

Dear Dee,

I am so sorry and stunned to read this sad news about your sweet Snickers. We do all we can to help our babies but when all our efforts fail, and we have no real options to choose from to ease their suffering, then we have to make the decision to set them free.

I am sure this decision was not easy for you to make, but please know Snickers is now pain free, once again whole as he was intended to be, running and playing with the babies across the Bridge.

A candle has been lit for Snickers at:

Our sympathies,
Leslie, Squirt, Ruby, Goldie and Crystal

Thank you for the candle. Snickers was a 12th birthday present for my daughter and was an incredible dog. Saying goodbye is never easy but I do know that setting him free was the right thing to do.
