Bella has settled in and is enjoying her new canine and feline housemates. Her GI Panel and fecal exam came back normal. She has been on a course of probiotics, Omega 3 supplements, new food, and a stress free lifestyle.
She continues to have soft poop and sometimes can't make it through a day and she has very flaky skin and her fur is thin. She seems to get cold easily and loves to sit by the fireplace.
This has led us down a path to look at her thyroid. She had a low T4 value and was just rechecked after 4 weeks and it continues to be low. She is now started on a course of thyroid treatment. We will continue to watch and see how this impacts her health, her skin and her stool.
Bella has been a fun girl to have around. She is very cuddly, maybe she's just getting warm, but she loves to be close. She also plays a fun game of dragging around the laundry from the dirty baskets. Every day we are greeted by a pair of pants or a shirt by the door or throughout the house. She loves kids, cats and other dogs.
