It’s been a while since I told you how I’m doing. I’m having blood tests very regularly because Mum and Dad, and Brendon the vet, can’t get my Cushing’s Disease under control. I’ve just gone up to 120mg twice a day, which is a big dose. I’ll have blood tests again in a fortnight.
The Cushing’s makes me itchy, so I have an anti-itch injection once a month. Dad took me to get groomed last week, to help stop me itching as we head into summer. Now my coat is very short it’s much more obvious what a barrel I am – a round tummy is one of the side effects of Cushing’s. I’ve got tiny little legs though!
My pills cost a huge amount every month now; with blood tests, pills and so one, the bill is always $1,00+ a month. Mum and Dad say it’s a very good thing they love me.
I’m still happy and yappy and full of beans. I turned 14 in October so, like most pensioners I rest a lot but that’s ok. Here is a photo of my new look (the bare patches on my neck are from blood tests):
