Testosterone for dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone for dogs


Avatar m tn Maybe -if it ain't broke, don't fix it....? If your dog is a happy, healthy, energetic good dog, then that's all the evidence you need to tell you he's doing just fine. Testosterone at too high levels can definitely cause problems, even cancers. And it might be hard for you to judge what is ok, and what is not.
Avatar f tn i have just gave blood samples for SHBG but i dont know if the testosterone test is for bio-available or not, my doc not up to scratch on this hormone thing and my endo is all for keeping ;me in the dark, i wish i knew more about the whole system. I am on 50mg of DHEA DAILY which makes no difference at all and on fluoextine 30 mg and the testosterone patch but nothing seems to make any difference. moods are all over the place and depression can set in occassionally as nothing seems to change.
Avatar m tn I have heard that a one year-old unneutered male literally reeks of testosterone, to another dog. A one year-old is still an adolescent, with all of the raging hormones of adolescence. The older male is just reminding the younger whippersnapper of his place. It's as if the old man doesn't want the teenager to get out of line at home. As long as the younger dog tolerates it, and it doesn't start a fight, I wouldn't worry about it.
Avatar f tn Potatoes are ok for dogs too. But it might be best not to give him a food which is high in saturated fat. Go for good protein, like beef, chicken, venison, rabbit, sardines, tuna, and omega oils, and carbs. Because I live in England, we have different dog foods over here, so I can't recommend a food for you to try. But with a little research, maybe you could find a suitable food.
Avatar f tn Last month went to the vet for check up routine. She said he is underweight. 21kg for his age was not satisfactory. prescribed some vitamins. He always looks well and is running and jumping in the yard almost all day long. I hate to lock it in his small house, because he is friend of the kids around and I love to see him playing free. Any suggestion to bring him to 30kg as suggested by the vet? Is it the right weight?
Avatar m tn So um.... I'm here because I had this big cyst on my thyroid, but I also have central hypogonadism. It's my impression that doctors in general for psychological reasons really really want to ignore hypogonadism. Anything but that. Also doctors are often very confused and mixed up beliefs. For instance, early pregnancy will stop a young women's growth because of hormones.
Avatar m tn This is more than possible, it's likely. And yes -even neutered dogs can mate with a female! They can even go as far as to form a "tie" (when both dogs get stuck together back-end to back-end) I have seen it happen! But as the years pass after their neutering, they find it increasingly hard to do this. Because the levels of testosterone in their system gets less and less. Also this will vary from dog to dog.
Avatar n tn To Hensley258 To get tested for low testosterone is very simple, just a blood screen. Although I was told to fast for 8 hours and get the test in the morning when your natural testosterone level is typically at the highest level.
401095 tn?1351391770 I am also very interested in how the testosterone shots go. I have thought about them for myself. it is not unusual for women to be low in testosterone. it occurs natuarlly in women too but is counter balanced by estrogen. maybe i need some of that? lol, i don't think so. i have noticed that adrenalin is great for fighting pain(as are other naturally occurring chemicals)and have often thought about getting my levels of all these chemicals checked. maybe i should. Nick.
Avatar f tn Yes, one thing some people forget is neutered male dogs can be quite active sexually! As years go by, and the testosterone levels drop WAY down, their sexiness goes downhill. But on many occasions I have seen a complete mating "tie" happen with a female on heat and a neutered male. But apart from the sexual thing -amongst dogs, often the humping behaviour signifies dominance.
Avatar m tn I have read a lot about dogs wetting themselves after being neutered as a result of a lack of testosterone being produced. could this possibly be the issue? what treatment should i seek??
Avatar f tn Where can I find the latest medical advice on using Testosterone gel 13 years after prostate removal? Removed because of cancer. Doctor keeps saying that Testosterone Therapy is not proper for patients who have had prostate cancer. I feel like my energy battery is just about depleated and seem to have all of the symptoms for need of T Therapy. Is there any good medical research that I can use to further discuss with Primary Care MD?
Avatar f tn fatigue, unexplained weight gain, headaches, memory/concentration difficulty, dry eyes, moodiness/irritability, shorter periods, increased PMS. She tested my hormones and my testosterone was low (5 in a range of 8-48), so she recommended that I see an endocrinologist. This is where the fun begins. The endo indicated that low testosterone in women is a good thing and isn’t the source of my problems. She suspected PCOS and ordered her own battery of tests.
274158 tn?1276347187 Not towards me. Just other dogs......I thought he was showing aggression towards my daughter, but he was just trying to sniff her crotch! He is gross! I guess that's what dogs do! But, no agression towards us humans, just dogs, which isn't fun....
Avatar n tn Thank you for your question. Biochemical failure after prostatectomy is defined as elevated PSA between 0.2 - 0.4 ng/mL. Depending on the primary therapy and where the disease has extended to, this may warrant the use of radiation therapy in conjunction with hormones. Thanks again for your question. Ash K.

Avatar m tn she has been on this treatment protocol for 2 yrs. with consistent improvement until this last test in 10/10. Her Androstenedione is really elevated bringing the progesterones up with it (and probably testosterone as well tho it wasn't included in the assay). Her cortisol is within normal range, tho it is creeping up; estradiol and aldosterone are normal. I realize Lysodren is probably in her future but her vet nor I feel it is necessary now as she is clinically fine - no signs.
Avatar m tn Hi Bob at your age your OK for DHEA its a hormone we have in our bodys, so all you will do is boost it up, with this take some Tribulus its a herb,now both of these run along the same lines, boost your testosterone, lift your libido and kick up your energy levels. DHEA your start low 25 mgs a day and work it up to what you think you need, I'm on 75 mgs a day, but please read up about it first it can have the odd funny side effect with the odd person, anything goes wrong you just come off it.
Avatar n tn DOGS CANNOT TAKE DECONGESTANTS!!!! They cannot metabolize them. If your dogs ears are that bad they are in need of antibiotic and antifungals. You can ask your vet to prescribe an antibiotic like cephalexin and an antifungal like fluconazole both which can be called into a walmart in your area and they are on the $4 generic list so it keeps cost down. As for itching they can have antihistamines WITHOUT DECONGESTANTS in them.
Avatar n tn As far as I'm aware, benadry is safe for quite a long time in dogs. The general doggy dosage is 1 mg/ per pound, so that's what your vet has prescribed - most people tend to go too low on the dosage. Using it for only the summer months should be no problem at all. I had a dog who needed it a good 8 months or more of every year and it never caused any trouble. Hope it works well for your Bostie!
