I really wish people would research before giving their dogs CBD willy nilly. If vets aren't aware, then there's a problem.

To add, a good run always helps the bowels get moving. Any time my pups get bunged up, I'll head to the local parks.

But yeah, like maxlisa says, probably time for a vet check.

As long as you understand that a dog cannot live on chicken and liver.

Personally, I would try a trial of synthroid for a couple of days, half a dose even. 25 mcg twice a day for 2 or 3 days,...

Metacam doesn't need to be weaned, don't think Clomicalm needs to be either.

I take it you haven't done a synthroid trial on her?

As for diet, you mention she's now on white chicken - is she...

Oreo is another dog? Is Oreo housebroken? Do you take them out at the same time?

You mention frustrated, what is your reaction when the dog pees on the floor? Automatically lock her in the cage?
