|When Ace (female) and Kale (male) met, they hit it off right away. There was never any aggression between them, no play that escalated beyond where it should, no blood ever spilled. She was under a year old and very energetic, he was a much calmer 5 year old. And she's an obnoxious little thief when it comes to toys and treats and chews.
Because of weight gain and general laziness, we had Kale's thyroid levels checked, they were low as I suspected, and we put him on thyroid pills. He has continued to be okay with Ace.
But along comes Teeko, another male. Ace and Teeko, love at first sight. Kale however, has pinned and made Teeko scream more than once I know it could be a SSA thing, but Kale has never shown any aggression toward males at the dog park or while on walks. I'm wondering if anyone has ever given their dog thyroid meds and had it result in less tolerance for other dogs?
On another note, Teeko needed treatment for hookworms. He's been a little nauseous since then. I could have been trying to fatten the boy up too fast, but I'm curious whether a little nausea is a side effect of deworming meds.
(For anyone who missed it, Teeko was a neighborhood stray I ended up taking in, at least for the time being. I may or may not have to re-home him (not because of Kale, because he's leaving in a couple of months, but because of my husband). In the meantime, I want to get him in better health ad get a better read on his true self before I place him anywhere. Huskies are a handful).
