Hay everyone. I got Moe’s test results back today. He’s officially an Acro-cat. His IGF-1 was 295 in the sample sent for testing. Moe is my vet’s first acro kitty; she saw one in vet school 12 years ago. So she’s excited to learn more about it. As an aside, Moe was also her first cat with ammonium urate stones in his bladder, requiring surgery. He’s a special cat. Anyway, she wasn’t very keen on drug therapy, said that there was little evidence that any drugs helped. Other options are surgery, which has a lot of risks during and immediately after, or radiation, which has the best outcome. Life expectancy after radiation is 18-24 months. She didn’t know expectancy w/o any treatment or what eventually causes death in cats with acromegaly. She’s calling a specialty clinic in Houston to find out their radiation protocol and costs. I should hear back later this week. So...what else do I need to ask her? What about drug therapy? Any studies that I can point her to?
