I think it takes a day to get the results. I should have them hopefully Friday.

Even though it is the same planet, underwater is a whole different world.

Yes, it's for Betty....

Got a call from the vet Friday and they said the test turned out good. They said for the thyroid, normal is 1-4 and she's at 2.9. So this all rules out the medical side. They did say that the only thing that turned out a little low, but isn't a problem, is one of the liver enzymes. He said they would only be concerned is if it was high. Other than that. everything else in the bloodwork turned out normal. So now, for her weight issues, I will have to rework her diet and probably more exercise. Could also be that she's putting on a few pounds for the winter as well. She should be 35-38lbs and she's 49lbs. So she's a little over.

That's great news. It's always nice to get a heathly blood panel back from the lab. Poor Betty...it's diet time!

Yup, diet time, but it doesn't help with her behavior issues. I was hoping her issues were due to hypothyroid. But now it's tough because the only thing left is training issues.

Behaviour is a concern, but good health is more improtant. It is nice to know she is healthy. How is she with her two sisters? I would guess a diet will not make her softer towards potential competitors.
