Once again, thank you, Dave. This is very good timing for me as I'm having blood work done on Tucker at this time by Hemopet. I'm saving this article.

I sure appreciate you. And Sabine.

I hope not, too, but something is going on. Either health or behavioral. He has been ravenous for the past 6-12 months and nothing I have done has helped, (and he's gaining weight.) Oh, and he is also getting more nervous with sounds, and hyper when someone comes over. Sometimes he seems depressed to me.

I wanted to have his labs run and his thyroid checked. The vet I was using said thyroid didn't matter in dogs. I contacted Sabine, she confirmed my understanding and recommended a new vet and Hemopet. I've changed vets, (small town, very little choice.) The new vet thought this was a good idea and was agreeable to sending the blood to Hemopet. Now we're waiting.

So, the timing was very interesting on this Thyroid article. Thanks.

Oh Sheri, I do hope you find the answers. Waiting is sooo hard. But Dr. Dodds is awesome and she will also help you with the dosing if medication is needed.
