Default Re: Border terrier and Lysodren-UC Davis visit

Hi Katharine

I wonder whether, once again, Zoe's pre and post numbers were non-stimulatory and therefore Dr Nelson's comment on her "Lysodren may have knocked her adrenals completely out". Generally a post value of 1.4 is "A" OK for a cushings Lysodren treated canine. As I posted on cc.net we generally only look at the post but when it comes to a dog "going low" the pre value is also looked at.

I don't know, and can't recall, your administration of pred and when the ACTH test results were done but it is my understanding that generally it is ok after 24 hours off pred before you can get reliable results for and ACTH.
