I posted in health, so hope it is ok if I post here.
Tests come back next week, but they are fairly sure.
He was border line last year after being on it long term for his Crohns. He lost a lot of muscle tone, fur and weight. We took him off it. His fur came back but the muscle in his head never came back and never will. It is a constant battle to try and keep weight on him.
We put him back on the Pred about 6 months ago as his Crohns isn't stable.
We knew there could be a possibility he would develop Cushings symptoms again, but had to weigh up the pros and cons, so kept the dose low. We have got the Pred down to 25g every 3 days and that isn't really enough to stablise his gut, but we are managing.
He has been vomitting so I am hoping it has been the bread he stole.
I know this sounds mad.Hoping it is the bread. This I can deal with. If it isn't the bread we don't know why his gut is unstable again and this always terrifies me.
Any advice would be great t.y.
No advice, but just wanted to send some good thoughts and prayers for both of you. I would be a nervous wreck if it were me.
One of my Labs had Cushings, though not from Pred. She was started on lysodren, then we moved and the next vet put her on anipryl whih did not work and when she was put back on lysodren sheended up being Addisonian, which the vets said was easier to treat. I found a couple of support forums back then. A couple of years ago there was a Yahoo Canine Cushings group but I could not find it tonight
A Google search tonight came up with these:
Forum is closed but there may be information on other parts of the site.
Thank you Andy.
Justine when it all started I was a nervous wreck. I have decided I am doing the best I can and take each day as it comes. Not sure if I will say that if he gets really sick again. lol.
