Thanks for the reply.
Yes, my girl is on thyroid replacement medicine. She has been on it since December 2014.
The first vet didn't really want to put her on it as she said that Jazzy didn't "present" like thyroid deficient dogs she has seen in the past. She first did an in house thyroid test and because Jazzy was in the range, although the lowest end, she felt that she didn't need it.
We went about 3 months later and I finally got her to send off for s full panel. Jazzy tested low, so she agreed, reluctantly to supplement her at a low level of .5 once daily.
We went with this dose for about 6 months and she improved somewhat, but not significantly.
One of the main issues I was having was her overall temperament.
I decided to change vets and did another full panel and this time Jazzy tested the same low level post medication!
This vet bumped her up to twice daily and what a difference it made. She had done a complete 360 and I have my sweet girly back.
She has been on twice daily for about 7 months now and like I mentioned earlier, the past 3 months I've seen more fur growth.
Her nails are actually growing now as well. I hadn't had to dremel her nails since she was about a year old.
I'm hoping this fur growth continues even if it is baby fine. It just looks weird when she gets those longer, dark patchy growths. But hey, fur is fur.
