Sweet Old Girl

Baby is really coming out of her Cushing's funk. She's gaining weight and her coat looks better. She's lost her crazy hunger too. Still not wanting to be BFF with Ivy though. Still hopeful!

Rabbits - 1

Yes, our sweet Ivy is a killer. I'm dealing with it the best way I can...blogging her stats!

Good News!

Baby's Test results are awesome!

Most notable:

Her ALP was 2800 and is now 635!
Post ACTH test cortisol was 3.8!
Vet confirmed reduction in liver size!

All good news so we're going to stick with the dose and retest in 3 months.

Anyone have suggestions for getting their Cush pup's back in top form weight wise. Baby is still skinny. Can you weight train a dog? ;)

30+ Days Post Cushing's

Taking Baby in for another ACTH and liver enzyme test tomorrow. After 6 weeks on Trilostane she looks so good! Pot belly is gone, her dry nose is back to normal, thirst is gone, she still loves treats but the super hunger has abated! Very hopeful that these meds will work for her long term!
