If you are unsure of this diagnosis, have your vet send a blood sample to Dr.Jean Dodds. She is the wizard of thyroid. If you google her, you will find where to send it. What are his symptoms? Is he hyperactive, have diarrhea?

That is wonderful news that he was seen again and has updated bloodwork!

I tried to go back and see if you has thyroid numbers from his previous testing. That pic was missing but I found the thread.

Vet Nutrition Test Results... o.o

Hopefully you were able to take the previous test results to the doctor so that he could see if his condition has gotten better or worse in the last 9 months. I do not know if the vet then put him on thyroid meds or if he has been untreated since the last results.

I cannot imagine how great he will feel (and how his coat condition will improve) as soon as you can get him on medication. I would be a wreck if I had not been on my thyroid meds for 9 months. It really throws everything off. The thyroid speaks to many other systems within the body and if it is not, none of them function properly.

This should be treatable and simple. Untreated, he is in for terrible health and awful quality of life, but if you can quickly get him back in (if they have not called you, I'd ring their phone off the wall if he were mine) and get him on the medication, you will be astounded at the change!

Your sweet little one will be coming into heat before you know it and you will want to get him healthy and neutered before that happens.

I wish you the best as you get his health managed and under control. My only advice is to PLEASE do not get bummed out over this and pretend it is not happening for even 1 more month. It will not get better on its own even with the better nutrition you now offer him. It has to be treated. You can do it!

Any update on your boy? Have they gotten medications all in place? More diagnosis? More followup or more lab work needed?

Have you noticed any change with him assuming that you have him started on the medication?

Not being nosy. I am just REALLY concerned about his health and hope things are underway to get him healthy!

Not to mention that many could learn (including me) from his issues and the plan you and the doctors have established.

Girl, become a pest! Seriously call them once a day, every day. They will not want to keep hearing from you and you will get answers magically quick!

He needs to get on medication really quickly to preserve his health and really his life.

Cannot wait to hear what they say and once he gets settled on medicine. Poor guy has to feel just awful.

Best of everything as you get answers soon!
