So The Vet Says...

...the test results from Shelly are weird.

Neither the vet nor I are surprised by this. Shelly has been tested for Thyroid problems, Cushings Disease and Addison's Disease and my very patient vet has done a consultation with an Animal Endocrinolgy Specialist and the result is...

...Shelly is weird. It cost me over $500 to have this medically confirmed.

Luckily, her weirdness doesn't seem at this point to be life threatening. In fact other than losing a bunch of hair, she seems fine. She isn't unhappy. Eats well. Doesn't itch.

We are to bath her in...get this...dandruff shampoo. This for a dog who hates to get her feet wet. And then we'll run another test in about six weeks. I have spent more on this dog's medical bills in the last month than Howard Waldrop spends in some whole years!

Anyway, it's possible she has Addison's Disease. If so, it means she'll get a shot once a month (which she will think is nearly fatal--she is not big on the whole injection thing.) I keep telling her that JFK had Addison's but she's not a very political dog.

Maureen - weird question maybe, but my dog is having some similar issues of "unknowns" and has been tested for some of the things you mention. Does Shelly have some, um, "wet accident" issues too, drinking lots and lots of water, going to the bathroom, but with no kidney/bladder infection? My dog has and we can't find a solution as to why.

Has your dog been checked for diabetes?

Yes, the dog has been checked for diabetes. Blood tests, urine tests, cultures. They wonder about an issue with the hypothalmus, but nothing is showing there either. Scary.

Shelly has never been especially keen on the whole house training thing, but no, she has in fact had fewer 'accidents' and isn't drinking excessively. (Although she, too, was checked for diabetes.) Shelly also doesn't have weak back legs, excessive eating--at least no more excessive than usual--behavior changes, lethargy, depression or any of the other signs associated with all this weirdness.

But I worry enough about her that I can only imagine how worried you are about yours.

And when he got a shot, it was fatal.
