Biscuit’s Health Update Part 2

We received an update concerning Biscuit’s health from our vet on Friday evening.  Biscuit’s Free T-4 test results reflected that Biscuit is on the lower end of the reference range.  Thus, our vet recommended that we get a full thyroid panel completed to determine for certain whether Biscuit has hypothyroidism, an under active thyroid.  Biscuit’s thyroid test will be sent to Michigan.  Our vet does not want to prescribe any thyroid medicine until she can confirm a thyroid issue exits because Biscuit is borderline.  We hope that it is nothing more serious than an under active thyroid.  Biscuit will go back to the vet in November for the full thyroid test as well as a blood pressure check, which can be impacted by Biscuit’s daily kidney medicine.

Biscuit is doing well and he has been in good spirits this weekend.  Biscuit got groomed and he got a bath!  His fur feels so soft and smooth!  He has enjoyed several nice long walks outside before the hurricane.  We are home with Biscuit today due to Hurricane Sandy on the east cost.  We hope that we will not lose power during this hurricane.

Happy Monday!

    I’ve been wondering how SANDY will affect you. Biscuit will have to get out his rainboots! Glad he is feeling OK despite his health problems.
