Re: Introducing Luna-update

I was looking through threads and remembered about the last time I posted. Things were so bad the last time I wrote. I'm over the moon to say Luna is thriving. We have a great routine together. ...

Re: Introducing Luna

Thank you.

She has been taking milk thistle since her liver diagnosis two years ago. It has really helped, as well as being on hepatic dog prescription dog food.

I'm hoping for the best, but...

Re: Introducing Luna

I was talking to my vet yesterday and she was complimenting me on keeping Luna regulated at home. It brought to mind how much of that praise should go to this lovely forum.

An update: Luna had a...

Re: Introducing Luna

Thank you. I'm going to take her in again. Something just isn't right. We have tested for Cushings twice previously. Negative results so I hate to travel down that rabbit hole again.

Re: Introducing Luna

I've been in lurking status, trying to gain insight on my dog's issues. The pancreatitis has become an ongoing problem. My once eager to eat pup is now struggling. The canned version of the...

Re: Introducing Luna

Update: We took Luna home. They kept her IV port in case she needed more fluids. She came home and drank out of her bowl. She was starving, but we only fed her a small portion of the canned...

Unhappy Re: Introducing Luna

I sent my husband to get her. I can monitor her sugar levels here.

Re: Introducing Luna

Is it typical to leave dogs alone during the evening at the hospital? Staff leaves at 6 and they want me to come and administer her insulin and pain medicine before they leave. She typically does...

Doctor said all other vitals look good. :)

Thanks,...

Re: Introducing Luna

Just tested her and she is 467. That sounds like I should give her a full dose. She is supposed to have her shot in 30 minutes.

Re: Introducing Luna

We seemed to be on the right track last week until Saturday. I was supposed to do Luna's second curve (daily testing in between) when I woke up to find Luna throwing up last night's supper.

Re: Introducing Luna

The curve went so well. We really have this blood drawing thing down. You can imagine how a chi mix would is blind and anxious can be a challenge. Her upper paw pad works great with a dab of...

Re: Introducing Luna

About 15 months ago she had all the Cushing's tests: urinalysis (UC:CR), ACTH, ultrasound. She had no real symptoms, but her liver levels were very high. UC:CR did not rule out Cushings.

She is...

Re: Introducing Luna

Thanks to all for your replies.

The meeting did not go well. She says there really isn't a point moving forward if we don't exam the Cushings and treat it first. No curve until Cushings is ruled...
