    Default Update on Roxie...

    I just got the call from the vet, Roxie does have cushings disease...

    This website gives details on the disease, symptoms and treatments...
    Treating Cushing's Disease in Dogs

    Her vet wants to use Vetoryl to treat it, it's been used for years overseas and now approved here by the FDA. It has very mild side effects, so we are hopeful that she will be able to tolerate it. The downside of course, it's expensive... $143 a month, and that doesn't include the blood testing that is essential to make sure she has the correct dosage. Of course I told her we don't care about the cost, I just want my baby to feel better

    I want to THANK you guys for all the prayers and support… it means the world to me and my family!!!

    Aww Tracey, I'm so sorry about Roxie's diagnosis, but glad that the vet was able to figure out what was wrong with her, and that it is treatable. It's such a worry when our babies get sick, and we want the best for them and so we don't care what the treatments cost, we just want them feeling better, and having their quality of life back, so we make it work. I know some medications can be very expensive. Sometimes you can get the same medications from the drugstore, rather than through your vet. The vet can write a prescription for you, and you can tak it to a drugstore to have it filled, it's usually a lot cheaper to buy drugs this way. Is this something you can do with your vet? It's worth looking into to, and see if you can get Roxie's medication at a cheaper rate.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Thanks Lynn, I still haven't heard from the vet yet so I'm not sure what dosage she will be on. Is there anything I should look out for as far as side effects? Did you change dog food?
