Default Re: Barney - 8yo Jack Russell Terrier

Kelley, melatonin will suppress the production of cortisol to a certain extent, just not as much as lysodren or trilostane. So if Barney is indeed normal, then I can understand the reluctance to even use melatonin. I think a consult with Dr. O & his colleagues at UTK is an excellent idea. Dr. O is more than willing to consult with attending vets or correspond with owners concerning their questions. A number of us in this group have actually e-mailed him with questions & concerns regarding our pup's treatments. He responds very promptly, & is an absolute angel when it comes to offering his help & advice.

Is their any possibility you can get a copy of those LDDS results & post the numbers for us?
