Poor hair coat, trying to eat you out of house and home, and sometimes behavior problems are just a few. Weight increase also. Sue

Poor skin and coat. Weight gain. Lethargy. Hunger. Less stamina. Dogs with hypothyroidism will gain weight easily while eating the same amount and be less energetic and active. Skin is flaky and dry. Coat is lackluster. Sometimes, fur will fall out.

Thank you Ashley,I kinda got depressed when Missy was walking by me and her tail is always flipped over on her back(I love that)anyway,the tail part is bald now.Someone on here mentioned something about the thyroid and now I'm wondering.We have noticed her legs tremble at times(not like shes cold)like legs just trembling.She eats like a pig,and at the same time is always hungry.My husband thought he felt a little knot on the side of her throat.she has several of the things you named.
