Default Re: Barney - 8yo Jack Russell Terrier

Here's the latest update on Barney...
The vet just called me, she heard back from the vet at the University of Florida. Apparently, the resident presented Barney's case in grand rounds. There was some disagreement as to how to proceed with his treatment and now they aren't so sure that he has Cushings even though his test was positive. He's going for another test on Friday, the low-dose dex suppression test.
I've requested the results from his other test and they are going to fax it to me tomorrow. I'll post the results when I get the fax.
The vet did say that if the second test comes back positive, they recommend Trilostane for a traditional treatment.
