Hi Karin,

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your dog, Maxxwell.

Every medical case is different, so I cannot provide any specific medical perspective on the treatment that your dog received.

Trilostane is a medication that is commonly used to treat Cushing's disease in dogs, which is a condition caused by the overproduction of cortisol hormone. The dose of trilostane that is prescribed for a dog depends on various factors, including the dog's weight, the severity of the disease, and their individual response to the medication.

It's important to note that every case is unique, and it's possible that other factors may have contributed to your dog's worsening condition and eventual death. If you have any concerns or questions about the treatment that your dog received, I would recommend reaching out to your veterinarian to discuss your concerns and to seek more information about your dog's case.
