Thanks Ginnym and Julie, I'm very pleased with the results to date. I am amazed at how much varied research is being done on melatonin. I know that you can't always believe what's on the internet :
, but this research is being done by very well respected doctors and universities. Dr.Dodds has studied canine thyroid disease for over 40 years and makes herself available for questions by email. I read all the research that Darby's consulting vets had published and it's pretty impressive. Still, I have monthly labs done to make sure her cortisol levels are controlled.
I'm a retired RN and I have some knowledge of how complex the endocrine system is and how important it is to be balanced. When that obiviously didn't happen with the Trilostane I started looking for a reason why. I gave the research to our vet and set up the consults with the experts. I love our vet and was happy to do the research, after all I'm a lot more vested in finding help for Darby. She's my baby girl!
