Chloe is going to the vet in 2 weeks to have some bloodwork done to check her Thyroid. I've noticed she is getting quite chunky and the soonest i can get her in with my work schedule is in 2 weeks. Is there anything else i should have her vet check on? I feed her Dr. Harveys Veg to Bowl and she loves to play fetch and go for her walks. I usually give her a 1/4 c food each meal but have decreased to slightly less than a 1/4 c. She acts like her normal self and doesn't seem to be drinking excessively. Please keep my little girl in your prayers that it's something that can be fixed easily.

All my girls have gained some weight, most likely because of the long winter we had. I just realized you're in Fl, Deb.

Your little beauty will most definitely be in my prayers.

Is Chloe getting a full blood chemistry in addition to a thyroid panel? If, not, I'd get one done. I'm a big advocate of yearly bloodwork as it can help detect little problems before they become big ones.

Had Chloe had any other symptoms? Hair loss is a common one with a thyroid imbalance. That was one of things that tipped us off about Lady's thyroid disease.

Good suggestion from Marj. We also have an xray on file so if anything ever comes up we have something to compare with.
Prayers for Chloe.
