Blood work revealed elevated thyroid levels.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I want to know more about treating the condition. Is it safe to inject him with radioactive dyes and then leave him for two weeks alone because humans cannot be in contact with radioactive chemicals. I think snoopy would grieve hisself to death if he was left without contact for two weeks in a cage alone
