|llombardo||You notice all this stuff in his first walk and after he sleeps all night, how is he when you come back from work and he has slept most of the time? He gains pep throughout the day or when he is out of the house?|

This morning when I woke him up to go out there was no fluidy sound. His eye mucous was about 50%...not a huge green glob. Cleaned out and it was grayish.
On walk he was super slow though

We just went through a set-back with Oz, new X-Rays, meds, blood-work-up, we're at $1,700 and we're personally arguing a new MRI. Dh is finding it a tough pill to swallow on a 10 year old dog... I do too.
Vets in Canada are significantly more expensive than the states, hoping Gator either gets better, or you get a definitive answer, because vets, they have no problem spending someone's money! Especially if they are having an issue pin-pointing the problem.

If you vet is thinking Iliopsoas, then I would look for a rehab place. Laser therapy, estim, massage and acupuncture can be very helpful. An Iliopsoas is not difficult to diagnose if you know what you are looking for. I would see if you could find so done who knew how to diagnose.

|Jax08||When the ortho diagnosed Jax with a groin tear, he said that it was a very UNDER diagnosed injury.|

I've seen dogs euthanized for muscle tears in the groin because doctors were unable to find the source of the pain/lack of limb bearing.
Low end normal on thyroid is still normal range so without other clinical signs not concerning.
I didn't see HW test on there but can look again.
Eos would likely be allergies or parasites. So may just be this year is worse than past years

|Jax08||Groin pulls take a very long time to heal. If that is the case, you need to have him on strict rest.|

The Iliopsoas/psoas...affect prostate, bladder, hind end weakness.
I brought this up to her and she said quite possible - referred to it as groin pull.

This Vet felt same.
Don't know if you saw the post with all values, included 4D snap. Negative on all.
His Thyroid is low end of normal
The High Eos may be related to parasites. We have done a parasite cleanse 2x. So may be why nothing showed, or just the general waste of money as no shedding of cysts/eggs (or other - round, whip, tape)...He did snack on some cat poop while snow on ground, and had fleas in Nov.
So may be why...or could be the pesticides on lawns that are causing the fluid/nasal sound and eye mucous.

This morning again, boogied on walk before work...mod nasal sound, but not as fluidy, still a blob of mucous right eye...doesn't bother him. - not rubbing face or pawing no swelling...
He was super frisky when I got in, quit warm out but he didn't burn out or slow down on walk even going home...still short walk re: heat.
Come to think of things, I did a parasite cleanse 2x. I think 4 weeks apart. Maybe this nasal issue is a result of the body detoxing the die-off.
Really should put him on Milk thistle. Not going to do anything until he has his next 2-3 Specific Gravity tests done.
