Bixby was really interested in all the neat sights, sounds and smells at the Vet's office, but he was not enthused about getting on the scale. Good news, though! He's officially heavier than when we got him.
Bixby would really like to know what's going on out there.
The Vet looked over his prior test results, looked at Bixby, asked me some questions, looked at Bixby and then said that, you know, you don't like to go against test results, but he really doesn't look or act like a hypothyroid dog. Which, of course, makes perfect sense, because he really doesn't.
So our game plan is that I'm bringing Bixby back for more tests on Saturday, when I can get him in 4 to 6 hours after he has his medication. Then we'll (hopefully) find out for sure if he still needs them.
The Co-Vet (?) did some calculations and declared he should be getting 1,000 calories per day. I checked out the nutrition panel on his food when we got home & discovered he's getting about 1,260. Score! I'm not even kind of concerned that he's getting more than recommended because, dude, have you seen his skinny ass?
MOM there's a squirrel.
