Re: Annie: Diabetic with new Cushings diagnosis

Judi, thanks for jogging my memory to mention a cost-saving tip! In terms of the ACTH, both parts of the test are given regardless of a dogís weight. But for smaller dogs, the vials of the...

Re: Annie: Diabetic with new Cushings diagnosis

Hi Karen,

I’m not exactly sure what you are meaning to say in regards to Annie’s Cushing’s treatment. Does your vet not intend to continue to monitor her cortisol level for the time being? If...

Re: Annie: Diabetic with new Cushings diagnosis

Hi Karen! It’ll be great for the folks here to also add their insight. But from what I understand about dual diagnosis dogs, I believe this is the relationship. Excessively high cortisol levels in...

Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog

I’m really glad you’ve made the appointment with the internist. Yukie’s situation is complicated enough that guidance from a specialist should be very helpful!

In all my years on K9C, I don’t...

Re: Cushing's, Diabetes and Hypothyroid

Just wanted to pop back to comment on Luluís lab results. The presence of calcium oxalate crystals and elevations in ALK Phos, ALT, cholesterol, and platelets are all consistent with Cushingís.

Re: Cushing's, Diabetes and Hypothyroid

As we've already discussed, your vet's position has support -- but in my nonprofessional opinion, only up to a point. That is to say that if you are launching into initial treatment with a dog who...

Re: My diabetic girl just started Vetoryl for Cushings - please help!

Here's a question from me on behalf of Sammi: since the Vetoryl has been discontinued, would that typically call for an adjustment in the amount of insulin that's given?

Re: Another Diabetic Miniature Schnauzer

Given Cooper's weight, that would be a reasonable dose, then, if he truly was Cushinoid. But obviously you know my doubts about that.

Re: Another Diabetic Miniature Schnauzer

OK, if it was only for two days, the effect should not be long lasting.

As far as dosage, though, we need to know how many mg. of trilostane were suspended in each ml. of liquid in order to make...

Re: Another Diabetic Miniature Schnauzer
