The vet was informative and nice. She ordered a few tests including getting a urine sample. I'm not sure how they did that. She also noticed his claws were very long (he doesn't like having them clipped). And in clipping one of his front claws, she noticed his paw pad was cut. So she sent home some medicine to help reduce the chance of infection. It's a liquid that I add to warm water and he has to soak his paw in it twice a day. I didn't think that would go over very well but so far he hasn't seemed to mind much.
The test results are not good. The vet confirmed Thompson has hyperthyroidism. :-( He's been taking meds for his thyroid for the past year and now the dose will be increased...
