She's not too spoiled, lol. wink I don't blame you one bit for buying the bear, I would have done the exact same thing. She looks so content sitting with it too.

She has actually had that bear since last year. She loves that bear....runs to find it when we get home, runs through the house with it in her mouth whining. Brings it up to bed with her too. The nice thing about the doxy dog toy is that is okay to bring outside on the grass smile


Okay, two things.

1. The amoxicillin wasn't doing "nothing". Lots of digestive issues since it was stopped. I will try to up the probiotics and more pectin in the next couple of days, and if that doesn't help, back on the amoxi for the time being.

2. The resting cortisol test came back. It was supposed to be a rule out Addison's, with a value of over 2 being the rule-out. Her value is 0.9, which is even lower than Max's 1.3. So we will be scheduling an Addison's test ($$$$) soon. I'm hoping we can do it on Monday. I gave her some supplements the other day that might mess with things, and I don't want there to be any question.

Even if she doesn't have Addison's, I might be less worried about giving a small physiological dose of pred if that's what we need to get her stable. Geez, if Max used 2.5mg per day, imagine Jazz would need a teeny tiny dose.

This has been on our list of rule outs, but I know that he really didn't expect this. When I asked about running the test at our last visit (so I could mess with some supplements), his response was, "yeah, sure". This would be one step closer to figuring her out if we eliminated it he said, but it was more of a shrug of a shoulder smile

Jazzy is full of surprises!

Wow Lisa, this medical mystery regarding Jazzy is heart wrenching because both of you are trying so hard and whatever this is continues to be elusive. I wish there were an organization that helps people fund tests in situations like this so that you will not become bankrupt trying to help your little girl. I just wish I could just click those red slippers together and have both of you be in a place of perfect health and well-being. You are both so very special. Bless you Lisa, for your love and devotion to your baby girl. May your reward be great in the days to come.

Lol, click away bianca, I need all the help I can get!!

I'm feeling a bit better today. There are so many ramifications for an addison's dog, and then there is the quandry if she just has low cortisol, but I not addison's, which I think I very not understood. Lots of ifs ahead!

We are scheduled for 9am monday. It will be about a 3 hour test, so I better pack a midmorning snack to bring with me popcorndrink

What specifically will they be doing as far as test? Bloodwork, x-rays? Will she have to be under anesthesia? I hope the test is not going to be too complicated and there will be definite results. Taking snacks is always a good idea if you ask me smile Hugs

More importantly, take your laptop so you can give us continuous updates. smile

You are really turning into some kind of diagnostician. That will surely help Jazz get into the best possible physiological order and will add even more to help you provide the rest of us day after day.
