Daisy's owners noticed her getting lame in the past 8 months, she struggled to walk to the park and became wobbly on her back legs. Daisy is only 4 years old and so she had xrays at the local vet which didn't show any problems. She had gained a lot of weight but this was thought to be due to her walking less. Her coat was becoming dull and her fur was falling out easily. We performed blood tests and found Daisy was suffering from hypo-thyroidism, which slowed her metabolism and made her sluggish. Daisy now takes twice daily thyroid supplements and in one week she has started pulling her Mum to the park, is chasing leaves in the garden and loves to play fetch again.
There is no cure for this problem and she will have to stay on daily medication but she has become a fun loving, active dog again.
