Tick diseases should always be ruled out!!! And that is no laughing matter however!
I've been posting from my phone lately, which takes four times as long, so I haven't posted in all the forums I often do.
I hope that the thyroid comes back low for Duchess - the signs are classic, but we all know that things don't always show up as we expect.
The digestive stuff, heck, could be so many things. Could be the thyroid too, could very well be the spondylosis. Sometimes just a slight change in the diet can cause problems -- and if you are feeding preprepared food, there are slight changes from batch to batch, I suspect, so there might be a growing intolerance. With both my dogs, when they became with stools, it was either an intolerance or infection issue.
With Miss Indy, her thyroid kinda gave out at 9 years old (med sized dog), and she requires burst of extended antibiotics for often unknown reasons.
With Oxana, I would carefully evaluate any meds that she is on, if any (like flagyl, for example), and then I would go with my acupuncture or chiro.
