Default Re: 13 y/o westie with cushings

Just chiming in to offer support. My dog was 12 1/2 when diagnosed and it has been nearly 3 years! So there should be lots of fun times ahead for your westie.

Curious what the acth results were... you said slightly high. Depending on where you are - you wouldn't want to wait 3 weeks to retest as your vet suggested. I read your threads from the old board and it looks like you have the loading instructions to read and refer to. Just making sure you know the signs of loading and to stop if in doubt.

Hang in there. This is the toughest part. Once you get through loading it is smooth sailing for most. Keep us posted.
