I adopted a terrier mix from a shelter. I was told Gus had seizures that was why he was given up. I did take him to my vet and she changed from potassium bromide to phenobarbital. She did say that his thyroid was low but we would address this at a later time. I have recently moved to another state. I have looked into thyroid in dogs, my Gus is losing a lot of hair and is gaining weight. He has a bad tummy and does not want to eat much. I have read that if I have his thyroid tested it would not be accurate due to the phenobarbital intake. Any thoughts. Thank you.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the terrier's name and age?Customer: Gus is about 8 years old. I adopted him about 1 year ago.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gus?Customer: He was very traumatized as any dog would be. He was with his first family from a puppy to 7 years of age. He has separation anxiety very bad.

Our 9 year old schnauzer keeps losing his toenails. We do
Our 9 year old schnauzer keeps losing his toenails. We do know once that he had an infection and a vet quite a distance away gave us some meds for it. But it has started happening again. He constantly chews his feet, and we are finding toenails everywhere, but the local vet said there was nothing wrong. Obviously something is wrong. What can we do for him?
