System Saver has helped Blue-Boo the most. She is a 10-year-old Beagle mix with Cushings. The shelter she came from gave her too much Lysodren, which immediately threw her into an Addisonian crisis on top of her “normal” Cushings existence. Swollen belly, lack of energy, lack of interest in things or in her surroundings. Trouble breathing if she went too many yards on a walk. I started giving her SS while she was still on the Lysodren (which is a DDT derivative!) and weaned her off of the Lysodren slowly as she started to improve with the SS. Now, I haven’t had a new blood work ACTH stim test done on her, but clinically here is how she presents when on System Saver only:
She has more energy; no more huffing and puffing; interested in everything; belly less pendulous and swollen; bright eyes; and she doesn’t want to go home when she gets a nice walkie!
