Ok, I need some answers if I could please :).
Ive just decided to possibly have a new Vet. He is a Vet who used to have a practice, but has decided to branch out into a Mobile Service…
I had a very long and informative talk to him this am, mostly about getting Saba's thyroid testing done... He does have a few of the signs and symptons of H/T, BUT, maybe he doesnt, only time will tell, I guess.
Anyway, he explained to me about the importance of T3-total, T4-total, free T3, and free T4. I will get all these tested. Then he also wanted to do TSH, but I have read somewhere that TSH isnt really useful in diagnosing H/T ??? Your thoughts ???
Next, I wasnt able to ask him about T3 AA, T4 AA and TG AA, (he had some meeting to go to, but I am ringing him tonight. Its now nearly 2pm), are these necessary, and can you explain why for me please ??? Just so I can sound somewhat intellegent when I talk to him tonght !!!
Once all these results are in, am I able to send the results to Dr Jean Dodds, to get her opinion on any course of treatment necessary??? Are there any other tests that Dr Dodds needs to be done, that I havent mentioned ???
This Vet also talked about the possible need to test his cholesteral levels, as these are often raised, with H/T. Necessary ??? Also mentioned they are sometimes a little anaemic as well, necessary ???
Dont get me wrong, he wasnt shoving all these test at me saying, they all NEED to be done, he was just giving me all the tests that can be done, in diagnosing H/T
The reason I am asking here is, cos I need to go out soon, so I dont have the time to do much research, myself, before calling him tonight If anyone has some great links, please post, cos I will be doing more homework between tonight and the appt, on Sunday...
Thanks guys :D:)
