Our 11-year-old dog has been on trilostane now for almost 2 years.  She is doing good.  She is on 20 mg a day.  Originally vet wanted to start at 30 mg, but I did some searching on the Cushings' web, it is better to start out at a lower dose, then increase.  So we made that decision with our vet.  Of course this is "our dog"  and with discussing with our vet.   Yes, the Cushings forum is a great resource.  (Our dog has Cushings, diabetes, and now cataracts.)

Not sure if this would be of help to anyone, but since Cushing's and diabetes often go hand in hand, this page from the Pet Diabetes Wiki has an overview of Cushing's and quite a few links.

http://petdiabetes.wikia.com/wiki/Cushing%27s_disease

The Texas A & M Cushing's mailing list archives shown under "Further Reading", along with the Canine Cushing's MB, is another good source of serious reading re: Cushing's and its treatment.

When you click the Texas A & M list link above, you'll be referred to a secure connection--it's SSL--just thought people should know this up front so you don't wonder why you're being asked about going to a secure site.  Smiley
