Well were back form the Vet.
My vet is also a skeptic about the Thyroid test, especially for his age. Usually a thyroid is something that they wouldnt do yet, but she was not opposed to doing such. Blood was drawn and will be send in for a thyrid test, She also recommended a CBC/Chemistry test at the same time. Both are headed to Dodds.
We then talked about getting a NutriScan done also. She believes its more likely a food problem. We talked about switching to a Grain Free food (of which she listed a few options) OR a Raw diet. The change should happen as soon as i can, and them remain for 60 days to monitor any changes.
Options she listed are:
Grain Free Foods with Limited Ingredients. (No Corn, Wheat, Soy, Or Rice)
- California Naturals
- Natural Balance (Limited Ingredient)
- Taste of the Wild - Blue
Store Raw options are:
- Stella & Chewy's Frozen or Dehydrated
- Honest Kitchen
- Natures Variety
- Or developing a cook at home food option.
Also recommended continuing the wild Alaskan salmon oil.
So for the time being, He's back on 10 day treatment of antibiotics as well as some Vetericyn VF for the hot spots 2 times a day.
