Thyroid condition linked to aggression? Really? Advice? when to know when enough is enough?
By the way he came back heartworm negative. Yay.
(just so you know he has never been a healthy dog)
But doesn’t hypothyroidism cause a dog to have excessive weight gain, and we have trouble keeping weight on him?
Anyways he wants to check for that. And he also wants to do a scan to rule out Hydrocephalus. (this is getting expensive, I don’t want to sound like a bad owner but money is tight)
What should we do? It could just be behavioral or it could be medical but his medical bills over the years have wiped us out. The vet is willing to do a payment plan, but how many more tests and treatments before enough is enough for the dog and us?
We’ve been living at the vets office the whole 2 years of his life, it seems we get one condition managed and he develops another.
Now don’t get me wrong I am not giving up until he is done fighting but I’m tired and how do we know when medically we are doing more harm than good?
Again I am in no way giving up on him. But how do we know that all these tests and treatments and hospital time isn’t making the situation worse?
Will he ever be healthy? Or is this his constant reality
It just seems he keeps getting more and more health issues and we keep going more and more broke.
ADD: We have been to 7 or 8 vets in 2 years
