Default Re: Sabre 10 year old Hungarian Vizsla Lysodren

This is an interesting topic ya'll got going here. How about this to factor in:

Squirt is not on anything but melatonin and purified lignans for Cushing's treatment, and I have noticed that the hair on her belly is much longer, there is more of it, and it is softer than her usual coat which is more like a Cairn's. It extends down the inside of her back legs on the thigh area, too. I could always seen her belly skin quite easily before, now I almost have to part the hair to see it. She has been losing the Cairn long hairs, but I believe that is expected at her age (11), but no other shedding or hair loss. The other two coats, show no changes other than softer, shinier since her new diet, then there is the belly hair which is different from the other three.

Is this the melatonin at work? That has been my thought on it.

Hugs,
Leslie and the girls

Hi Leslie

Yes I suppose in Squirt's case it probably is the melatonin or lignans. Sabre is not atypical and I haven't done any research on the effects of the treatment and the "hair" issue. Nor, for that matter have I looked into it for Sabre's case. But, yes it is interesting.

I have just picked up Sabre from surgery. It is a little uncomfortable for him so for his sake I hope the pain killers stay around in his system for a little while. We are going to keep him off Lysodren for the week and he is taking pred for the next few days along with Clavulox. Let's hope another lump doesn't reappear!!!!

Glad to hear Sabre is in his own home and that the vet is holding the lysodren and is giving some pred, sounds like a great plan to me, especially with the Sabres levels getting low before and taking so long to come back up.
Hugs to you and yours from me and mine
