So its official, Ramone has Acromegaly & IAA IGF-1 214 IAA 77% I'm sad but also not surprised as I was suspecting this for a long time... Ramone is her first acro patient so this is new for my vet too. I was a bit overwhelmed at the vet yesterday as I was taking in my other boy Tony, who is not feeling good this week,first diarrhea to constipation issues now and I really need to get him to have a full solid bowel movement. This isn't the first time this has happened either so I know what to do.. just got to try and get his body to cooperate ! With Ramone - she was suggesting that an ultrasound be done to check on his organs etc? Make sure is heart is ok and some other things I can't remember... What is recommended to do with Acro/IAA once diagnosed? Ramone seems so good right now and we've been managing his #s pretty darn good. If I were to just keep carrying on the way I am - what can happen ? I'd love to hear any stories and recommendations. Finances do need to be considered as much as I'd love to spend whatever it would take I have to be conscientious of that. I'm in BC Canada so I'm not sure where/what my options are IF I were to do anything for Ramone. Also are his test #'s, are they higher than usual or is that average ? I don't really understand what they mean... Can those change over time ? Some pics below of my boys.
