When you described the skin issues and the overweight, I immediately thought thyroid too.
Thyroid full panel testing: have your vet draw blood and either ask them to ship it or have them give it to you to ship to Dr Jean Dodds. I had it done last Feb and the prices had just gone up so I think it was around $80 (go online and you will find the price list) plus add in the cost of the blood draw and the shipping to the lab.
