After I did my previous post to Jake I got a phone call and did not post immediately. After I posted I read the posts from Joanne and Emily. I completely agree with Joanne on magazine articles on thyroid disease usually ending up with the fact that one takes a pill every day and no more complications. I think we were thinking along the same lines.
And Emily, so glad to hear you too have a Dachshund. Ours is a smooth red mini. Great understanding companions and a comfort when suffering from this Graves disease aren’t they. Take care.
