A Cushings Comparison

Josh - April 11, 2009 - before being given pergolide to manage his Cushings
Josh's coat, at this time, was very patchy with areas of very long hair, most noticeable here along the bottom of his rib cage and as what looks like feathering on his forelegs.

Josh began taking pergolide in June 2009.  Below is a photo taken March 17, 2010.  His coat is still very thick, but of a much healthier texture and consistent length.

We will retest Josh's ACTH level in June to determine if his pergolide dose needs any adjustment.
