Customer Question

Hello. I have a neutered male 3 year old great Dane. He's been a healthy dog up until this year. About 6 months ago he developed a sudden thyroid condition. He's taking his thyroid meds twice daily and he has been fine since then up until 1 month ago. We made the mistake of switching his food to am all organic, grain free food. That next morning, he was suddenly very lethargic, we think had a fever, not wanting to get up, not eating much or drinking and he seemed very stiff in his joints. We took him to the vet. They did an exam and a blood panel and didn't find anything. They suggested we take him home and monitor him to see if he improved before doing more tests.

Also I've noticed he has really rough calussed elbows. That might be normal.
