Hi all - well, it has been three years since my original posting. FYI, after a week long stay at the emergency vet and exploratory surgery, it was determined he had an overabundance of h. pylori in his gut and after a 3 week round of antibiotics, all was well. So now it's 3 years later, and Kodi is now 13. He has really slowed down, and he's shedding clumps of fur all over the house. I'm taking him in tomorrow, and I suspect that his hypothyroidism is worsening. Is it possible that the soloxine is no longer working?
Oh, and thanks to Dr. Lee for the info on hypothyroidism. I found it very helpful
