I had to take my dog to the vet today. There were a few things that were concerning me. First, since we moved his skin had started to break out and he was loosing hair. He had patches of redness on his skin. They looked like they hurt, but he wasn’t acting like they did. Also, when he sleeps, he snores so loud that I thought I was going to be on the phone with ADT MONITORING because it was so loud, I was afraid that he was going to set the alarm off! When I took him to the vet, he immediately knew what the problem was. He identified the skin problem but also said that the snoring could be because of hypothyroidism ( I didn’t even know dogs got this!). After his blood work came back, he did have it. It explained his weight gain, skin problem, and snoring. I am hoping that the medicine he is on clears up the snoring first, because I can hardly get any sleep! Who knew a dog snored louder than a person?
