Health Questions & Answers



My 13 yr old black lab was diagnosed with cushings 3 weeks ago. The vet was at a loss,so I took him to a specialist. An ultrasound was done. His is in the pituitary and is treatable, but so far the medication is not working. He was prescribed 120 milligrams of trialistane once a day,then every other day,but still is not correct dosage. Do you have a product that would work for him? He is 90 lbs. His symptoms are drinking excessive water and the food craving has subsided some. He does have arthritus in his backside also.

Dear Joanne,

For Cushings I have used DIA-IONX and Phophatidyl serine. DIA-IONX helps address the endocrine system and is available from Vetionx. Phosphatidyl serine should be available from a health food store. In addition it is helpful to give digestive enzymes, MSM, PROBIOTICS, vitamin C, and OMEGA 3,6,9. The oligotherapeutic mineral base found in the IONX products helps the body to better utilize the other nutritional substances given for a synergistic response and faster healing. Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. What do you feed your dog? Diet and treats can impact the body.

The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary. Acupuncture might also be helpful.

Please let us know how you do.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
