    How neat! That definitely is not something 'just anyone' could do. I am appalled that the powers that be do not understand that. FWIW, I do not know what part of the country you are in, but you...

    If the Prascend did not help, then IMO the underlying issue is just plain IR, not Cushings. Sadly, some Vets still do not know that, although untreated Cushings can worsen underlying IR, not every IR...

    Your medications are a matter between you and your Doctor. He does not deserve nor should he receive a 'vote'. If he is that controlling, I respectfully submit the idea to you that HE is, or quite...

    Edited, now that I have read the whole thing. I am glad you called Vet, but I am shocked Vet did not come out. Maybe you need a different, more responsive Vet.

    It also is parents' choice to continue to smoke cigarettes, which also harm all who are exposed to the second hand smoke. The only difference is, cigarette (nicotine) addiction is 'legal'.
