Do any of you have thyroid problems with your goldens? I know they are prone to that. Two of my guys have a lot of the symptoms of hypothyroid (weight gain, hair loss, etc) but their blood work always comes back fine. I have put them on reduced calorie food and supplemented it with salmon oil. I only give them organic, holistic foods with no "junk" in them. Any suggestions for these guys since their tests say they don't have thyroid problems?

Gosh, Solomon, it's a shame the vet can't be more helpful. I was told Goldens are prone to allergy type skin conditions but the accompanying weight gain wouldn't fit that scenario. Could be an anomoly, or coincidence. Are you bored? Getting enough exercise?
