Mom and I are sad today. The test results are in and they say that my thyroid levels are normal... WHAT!! How can this be mom said, I have almost every symptom of it... Mom was so shocked when they told her that on the phone she almost started arguing with them but instead got herself together and made an appointment with my dogtor instead. He is away until the 29th though so we have to wait a little bit. Today was a not so good day for that stuff on me, I had some yucky wet stuff come out of my missing fur spot on my neck. Bath time again.... Mom is still real sure that it is thyroid, she found out from other Sheltie mom's that had the same things as me that us Shelties need different levels and that the normal numbers aren't good for us. If anyfur wants to see here is a link to it:

When mom saw it it made her about cry seeing the symptoms and pictures of other Shelties. I am missing lots of fur already too but not as much as the ones in the pics.... yet... Mom is determined to make me better though so I know that I will be ok. Just taking more time than we hoped. Mom said that she misses my Binxey smiles lately but she knows that I haven't been feeling like myself lately. I am betting that I will be a smiley Binx real soon though. Anywho, that is the results.... for now anyway... Mom is sure that my dogtor will start me on a small dose of those meds to see what happens when he sees the info mom is taking. Will keep you posted... Nighty night, time to snuggle my mom. :)
Hang in there Susan.... and Binx....
Wait till your vet comes back.. and ask for a retest. Also ask them to check out for themselves about different levels. If they are caring.. they wont see it as a problem to learn .
If they have issues with asking for help from other vets... then maybe it is time for a change of vet.
Just hang in there.
