He is not now on any other meds. He was treated for bacterial hepatitis about 1 month ago. I am also giving him alternative supplements to lower cortisol and support liver.
Milk thistle, dandelion, astragulus, borage oil, CoQ10, dhea, phosphatidylserine, burdock, wild yam. The vet prescribed liver and pancreatic enzymes as well.
I am located in the US Virgin Islands. We do not have competent surgical vets here, so that option is not feasible. I believe ultra sound is possible but I was under the impression that the 8 hr test confirms whether the problem is in the adrenals or coming from the pituitary. That being said, can Vetoryl be used as a consistent daily long term med to counteract cushings? Also, when can we expect the muscle strength to return?
