to eat as much today. He loves cooked chicken, I'm guessing I could give
him more of that during the day as well?
Crushed in the Pill pockets is good, glad he's showing no objections

Yup cooked chicken works great as a treat, you can also try putting tiny bits in his catfood, make the bits little so he's not pulling them out & just eating them & not the food , also smooshing them into the canned works for that too.

It's been so long, I honestly don't remember when it started. It could have
been before he was diagnosed. Thankfully, his T4 numbers have been
good for some time.
I've never used a DAP diffuser but some members have found success with them - worth a try anyways if there is stress in the house

It's good that Sampson has at least that one area to go if he feels the need for some alone time
