As I mentioned before, Emma has recently been diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease. We’ve been working on getting the right dose of medication for her, which has involved lots and lots of blood work for her. She is definitely over going to the specialist and is very over having blood drawn and getting shots once she gets there. It’s almost an all day process, and involves multiple blood draws, so I can definitely understand why she doesn’t like it.
Fortunately her last round of blood work showed really good results! The higher dose of medication seems to be working for her. Her last cortisol level was 3.9. They vet said they want it to be between two and five, so Emma’s was pretty much perfect.
We go again for more blood work on the 22nd, and are hoping for similar results. If her results are good then we’ll be able to reduce the blood work to about every three months instead of basically once a month. Here’s hoping!
