Trilostane in the management of canine Cushing's disease: where are we now?

About this event

This presentation will provide comprehensive commentary on the last 20 years of the use of Trilostane in veterinary medicine. It will commence with a brief historical perspective on canine hyperadrenocorticism and its treatment options. This will be followed by the indications, mode of action, dose, monitoring, efficacy and adverse effects of Trilostane. Moreover, the presentation will focus on the best evidence (or lack thereof) for the evolving management and monitoring recommendations of Trilostane treatment. Next, the presentation will address the current equipoise in the literature on the use of Trilostane. The presentation will conclude with a frank summary of the current trends and convergence of evidence, equipping practitioners with clear and practical advice on the way forward.
