Maggie seems to be doing better - we have increased her thyroid meds and have her on antibiotics, and we also started giving her fairly high doses of fiber. Did you know that 1 tsp of pure Psyllium (fiber) when mixed with 1 tablespoon of yogurt makes a fairly nice dog treat? It quickly gels into a sticky rubbery mess that she loves.

So hopefully this latest health issue will resolve itself happily. The full-spectrum blood tests came back showing that her liver has actually improved a bit! Her thyroid numbers were low, and I'm seeing signs of her hypothyroidism coming back, so we increased her dosage by 25% and we'll retest in a bit.
