.............................Here in the US, medical therapy is the
human GnRH agonist
Lupron depot (leuprolide) from Tap Pharmaceutical. It is dosed at
100-500mcg/kg on a monthly basis.
Another option is melatonin. It can also be used at a dose
of 1 mg/kg orally once a day about 8-9 hours after sunrise.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM

My vet has never heard of Lupron for adrenal. Wuzzle went in to
have his right side out but the vet said the adrenal was glued to
the vena cava and he didn't want to risk his life. I went to the
vet a few weeks later and mentioned Lupron. He said he didn't
know about it so I printed off all I could find about it, but
there was no mention of how much, how often, etc. Does anyone
know where I could get him this info so we can try it on Wuzzle.
Also, I mentioned cryo and he is new to this. The office just got
the unit and they haven't had a chance to use it. I told him that
Missy had it done 3 years ago and the vet froze her 3 times at 70
degrees below zero and she has been fine since. He is afraid that
he might go to deep and then when I get him home he may start
bleeding. Can anyone give me about the cryo process and if there
is anything that I can get to take him. He is a wonderful vet and
he even asks me now what I would do in certain cases.
Thank you for starting this wonderful list and thanks for the
Linda and the 21 little ones now in NV
