I am doing so well these days that momma is questioning why the other blood tests that the vet did on me all along never detected I had a thyroid problem even though I had all of the classic signs (Skin disorders, weight gain, hair loss, tired, cold, etc...), In total I have been suffering from this for over two years and have had at least 6 other full scale blood tests to see what the problem was. Each time the vet would comment on my liver failure (yup, it's still swollen and the numbers are way up there), but they did not detect any other issues. Last year they specifically tested for thyroid problems and came back and said everything was just fine even though my skin was breaking out with the worst case of blackheads that they have ever seen, I was almost completely bald on my back and I would not even walk to the mail box because I just did not have the energy, I wouldn't play with Coco and I was cold all the time.
With this blood test they sent it out someplace and low and behold, I had thyroid problems that can easily be taken care of with a 10 dollar a month prescription. I'm feeling so good and looking much better also. Momma even took a brush and brushed my hair on my back because I finally have some - BOL, BOL
I'm feeling wonderful!!!

Wait a minute. With your hair growing, you'll have to go to torture(grooming)place. Not so good.
But I am still happy for you to be feeling better!
So happy to hear you're feeling better!
sssssssssssooooooooooooo happy Puff that they found what your main health issue was.things will be 100% better now that they know what you need. Angel Foxie was born with a thyroid problems but Vet never picked up on it until see was about 2 and started questioning different things with her.....
Once you have the right dose of medication... you will be very happy and energetic once again.... kisses,mazy and Gma keda
I went thru all that too~weight gain, hair lose, skin problems. And they cleared up when I took my thyroid meds.
