I would just like to thank everyone for their thoughts and well wishes for Buddy and I. At this time we are both doing fine. He will be going back to the vet Wednesday for a follow up. I have noticed over the last couple of weeks his energy level has increased.
As for myself I am doing fine. I seem to have made my way through covid. The only lingering effect is that I do have a minor dry cough but otherwise my appetite and energy have returned I’ll probably call my doc Monday just as a follow up
So the LFB was back in on Wednesday for a follow up. Even though he is getting two full pills daily, one in the a/m and one p/m, his thyroid is still a little on the low side. We're just going to attribute it to Cushings. He does have conflicting results regarding the urinary infection. When they ran it through the machine it showed it still present but when they examined it under a slide it was negative. They said it was diluted so they just don't know. The option is to do a culture, see if it exists, what type of bacteria it is, and then determine the correct antibiotic. More money. I said to go ahead. When I picked him up later that day it was another $300. I would rather spend the money, find the problem if it exists and deal with it rather than gambling on it.
So i received the results of Bud’s test and there is no infection. We’re just going down the road that the increased thirst is simply a result of Cushings. When the doc called I didn’t have an opportunity to talk to her but I’m thinking about giving her a call just to discuss the results and possible options for his treatment. I’m happy with just doing nothing as long as that is a viable option.
Bud says hi and thanks to all of his Beagle cousins for their concerns and well wishes.
