Sadie thyroid checkup

 Sadie had a four-week checkup to see how her thyroid levels were doing. I'm pleased to say that her numbers are much improved. She even gained 4 ounces! We can reduce the medication a bit. She'll get rechecked in three months.

An interesting note: I asked the vet to check her ears, because she had been scratching them a lot. She tends to get semi-regular yeast infections in her ears, so I'd started some ointment she'd been given before. Turns out, the scratching is a side effect of the medication. I'm hoping the reduced dosage, in addition to time, will help with that.

Here's a selfie I took of her on Friday night. Despite her looking grumpy, she was quite happy at the time.

Glad to read that you are doing well, Sadie, and that those itchy ears should fade too.
