isolating himself away from other dogs
He has started a low dose of thyroid medication today and I am hoping we will see some improvments - although he has improved quite a bit in the last two days with no treatment at all. Very very strange!
Was hypothyroidism confirmed through the T4 blood test? If it is hypo, a couple of days on Synthroid will tell the tale. What dose is the dog on?
