just completed but no good answer. Dr thought maybe histoplasmosis or fungus cause he’s a rescue from the south Arkansas.
He’s now on purina ed and previously was on Hills ID. He threw up on that but maybe not due to food. Birth date is Jan 7 3017. He does not have hard life. I’m at home always. He does to dog park and following a skirmish there where he did het a cut ( but not serious) he seems to have lost his mojo or energy. I can see all field - no trees but more like football pitch. Never left alone.

He did get the ultrasound from iniversity but coming up empty.
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

I presume it was a radiologist that did the ultrasound so that is good

Did they test for Addison's disease-> Blood test

Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Okay

I would check for Atypical Addison's at this point

It could cause all of the signs you are seeing
