Thank you so much for your suggestions, the first test was at a 5.7 and I am awaiting the results of a second test. The initial blood test also revealed Diabetes Insipidus but I feel there is more to it than that and I see many of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism which i've read is usually results from medication for hypo and I had not given any such meds so it's a mystery how it was contracted. And we did lose her half brother in January which would explain added stress.

Has anyone ever had to deal with hyperthyroidism in their Basenji rather than the hypothyroidism ?

Hi Agilebasenji, I have thought about alternative medicine and have asked a few people about it but have not received any recommendations so I will have to search the internet for those resources.

Hi Ivoss,
Thanks for your reply. For the back/neck pain we put him on a mild pain killer and an anti inflammatory meds and had him on low exercise and I had already replaced the collar with a harness several months ago since both my boy and girl had incidents with with a pulled muscle or pinched nerve in the neck/back which comes and goes. And yes a low thyroid can cause seizures but my vet told me that the second blood test indicated that the low thyroid is due to a secondary cause rather than a hypo-active thyroid gland.
My boy is at the vet right now and I will be picking him up at he end of the day.
