Default Re: Max - 11 year old Maltese (Atypical Cushings) - started Lysodren Maintenance Dose

Hi Janette.

I'm glad you found us and that Max is doing well on his maintenance dose of Lysodren. You are right the cortisol elevation is negligible which leads me to believe the real problem is the sex hormones, especially the estradiol. Changing to the standard Melatonin and Flax Hulls was an excellent decision and I hope that between the three treatments, you will finally start to see some improvements. It may take a bit of time so don't get discouraged because I think you are on the right path.
