Default Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog

I think you definitely need to see the internal medicine doctor. When Jenny was diagnosed with Cushings my vet at the time told me it was too complex for him to handle and referred me elsewhere. I was hurt but in the end, he was right.

Yukon needs a specialist. Can you check with the Cushings forum people to see how much it might hurt giving up the melatonin

Jenny had to take prednisone for awhile which can raise blood sugar, so we just increased her insulin. Your goal is to find an insulin dose for his current situation. if he needs the melatonin, you need to find an insulin dose to offset it.

Seriously, I looked at jenny's old records. We spent $1,200 on curves at the vet before her sugar moved much at all. I'd be all excited, go in and they'd tell me no movement.

you can do this. See if you can get in to the specialist earlier. Judi
Jenny: 6/6/2000 - 11/10/2014 She lived with diabetes and cushings for 3 1/2 years. She was one of a kind and we miss her.
