Research Papers and Case Reports
Overview of author’s work:
- Atypical Cushing’s treatment in five dogs
- 54 cases with lab results and hormone doses—adrenal exhaustion and low immunoglobulins are common problems among SARD dogs
- A study of 18 SARD dogs, diet, and lifestyle
- Two studies presented at the 2007 Meeting of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists: A retrospective study of three dogs; and a case study of a Brittany Spaniel.
Additional case reports:
- Case report #1 — Hormone replacement in a Jack Russell Terrier
- Case report #2 — Hormone replacement in a Beagle (This case is very straightforward with five sets of lab results. This dog regained limited vision.)
- Case report #3 — Short-term hormone replacement in a Springer Spaniel (This report describes the results of terminating treatment too soon.)
- Case report #4 — Estrogen levels monitored at Cornell University. (The pattern demonstrated by this laboratory is similar to the pattern demonstrated by National Veterinary Diagnostic Services.)
- Case report #5 — Confounding test results in SARDS dogs: When both cortisol and estrogen are elevated. (Full text pending. Please also see FAQ #13 at this time.)
- Case report #6 — The hazards of Lysodren and Trilostane treatment during adrenal exhaustion.
- Case report #7—BLINDNESS REVERSED in a male Springer Spaniel (This report includes the author’s most complete theory of SARDS.)
- Case report #8 — Melatonin treatment vs. cortisol replacement therapy – a comparison of two treatments.
- Case report #9 — IVIg treatment does not prevent adrenal exhaustion in a Wheaton Terrier. (This report compares the autoimmune theory of SARD and the adrenal exhaustion theory of SARD.)
