pigeonsheep's boy, Dexter has a thyroid issue. Numbers came back way out of normal range.

PM her and perhaps she can tell you what medication, supplements (she mentioned a bundle of vitamins they wanted him on) and course of treatment was recommended for him.

Thyroid is nothing to wait around with.

Have you had initial blood work done?

I called about it this morning.One of the outside dogs is being spayed next Friday,and Im gonna get them to check it then,They told me on the phone it was unlikely because of her age(she'll be 3years old next month),But they also said she was the youngest they had seen with ear margin vusculitis.But she does have little knots on both sides of the throat now.Acting perfect,eating perfect.so maybe blood work is the answer.
