I think bloodwork is in order to rule out thyroid conditions that could be causing both symptoms. Also have the vet test for heartworm at the same time and if he's not on preventative, it may be time to look into that too. If you can have them take a urine sample and analyze that, I would recommend as well. Good luck and keep us posted.
