  • The things your dogs are doing are all normal, it's mostly attention seeking behavior.

  • I disagree-it is NOT normal behaviour -as do several other people who have commented.my dogs are not attention seeking.i know my dogs and they sense it.its known that dogs sense when their owners are ill or becoming ill

  • Can you post the results of your thyroid tests as someone on here may be able to help.

  • I think my TSH was 3.32 .that's the only test done.

  • Doctors should not rule out a thyroid problem simply on the basis of a TSH test. You need to ask for further tests to include free T3, T4 and thyroid antibodies.

    If your doctor will not do them ask for a referral to see an endocrinologist.
