Re: Is Cushings inevitable?
<<I looked at your CH for Oden, in June he was still out of normal range for insulin.>>
Yes, and based on the swellings, I assume he still is, and possibly worse. I’ll retest in fall.
<<When you state swellings, do you mean fat pads?>>
I don’t know if it’s fat pads. What I'm referring too at his girth, particularly on the right side. It feels like loose skin, but puffy.
<< Can you take a couple of full side view photos of Oden and post in his album?>>
Done. I circled the swelling in the picture of his right side.
<<We might be able to help you understand if he needs to lose more overall weight or simply wait on the fat pads to resorb.>>
I assume he needs to lose more weight because he still has that “apple butt” thing where his fat his higher than his spine over his hind quarters. There’s a picture of this in his files.
<<Also, if you haven't reviewed his diet since the June insulin reading, that might be in order.>>
I think his CH is up to date. He and Eeyore (miniature donkey) split 21 lbs divided into 7 meals a day. Most of it is Timothy Balanced Cubes. Small amount of soaked
hay. Scant handful of Stabul 1 here and there (as part of the 21 lbs.). No grass.
