I have been meaning to post an update on Simon, but the last several days have been crazy. It's that time of year. Semester one ended and final exams were written and marked. Grades were calculated and posted. Second semester began today. I have a whole new crop of teenagers to beat into submission. Just kidding - some of them have already had their spirit broken. :)
In my last Simon update, I mentioned that we had started him on Vetoryl (60 mg once a day). He went in for ACTH stimulation testing on January 21st and after looking at the results (and noting that his drinking and urination had not diminished), the vet increased the dosage to 90 mg once a day.
After each dosage change, new ACTH stimulation testing must be done. So, Simon went back into the vet on January 29th (at which time his drinking and peeing had decreased very slightly). Now, the vet, in conjunction with a specialist in internal medicine, decided to alter his meds to 45 mg twice a day. This new dosage started today. I'm hoping that this twice a day routine will do the trick.
