Hello! I haven't been on in a while so I had to get a new user name, lol. We have a 9 year old cocker named Max who was recently diagnosed with Pituitary dependent Cushing's disease after lots of testing and process of elimination.
We've chosen, with input from our vet, to treat with Anipryl. Max has all the classic symptoms of Cushing's and I'm wondering if anyone else has treated this way. I don't know what to expect as far as time frame for recovery. Max will get 15 mg per day, with an option to do Lysodren if the Anipryl doesn't produce the desired results. The Anipryl just has much less side effect risk and monitoring without the possibility of inducing Addison's according to our vet.

Also, Anipryl is an MAOI which usually comes with dietary restrictions, at least for humans. Are these applicable for dogs?
Thanks in advance for any input.

15 years ago I had a cocker with Cushing and she was treated very successfully with Anipryl.
