Subject: Re: Lupron shot time
Well I think Mike hit the nail on the head. Do not
wait for the signs to return! Use the Lupron every 4 months
to prevent the elevation in the hormones and the return
of the clinical signs. I have also had some cases where
the adrenal gland feels smaller on abdominal palpation
with Lupron. Personally I think Lupron does indeed shrink
the adrenal gland in some cases. These are most likely cases
of hyperplasia, so when you remove the stimulation to the adrenal
gland (LH) with Lupron it returns to normal size.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
