Thigh-Roid

So a while back mom brought me to the vet as my stools were continuously loose. While my appetite seemed to be normal, mom noticed I was always hungry to the point of being ravenous, famine!

So she took me to the vet and the first thing they noticed was my weight! I used to be 20 lbs but last month I was 16 pounds. YAY!! Wrong... The loose stools, huge appetite, rapid weight loss meant something was up.

My thigh-roid was 11% which is really high!! It should be (if memory serves) 2-4%.

So I've been on Methimazole 5mg (half a tablet 2x a day) and looks like it worked!

My thigh-roid is now 2% ish and I'm in the n normal range AND I lost some more weight and officially weigh 15 pounds and some odd ounces! Mom's getting an ear type of medicine as I'm difficult to medicate.

Nurse Pansy to the rescue, she took care of me of course :) I'll write more soon as I have some good news!
