Default Re: Please help - bad reaction with Trilo - don't know what to do next?

Hi Matea,

How much does your dog weigh?

What testing was done to diagnose the Cushings?

Do you have the results so you could post them?

What you described is a pretty classic looking "too much trilostane" sending the cortisol too low. The pred basically is cortisol and by giving it your bring the levels back up into a healthy range. Glad she responded so quickly and so well!

There is a link here on the forum re Trilostane dosing and that may give you some insight into whether this seems to have been a proper starting dose. But please do post answers to the above questions as it will help people better reply and offer suggestions.
