A much needed dose reduction

Our dog started thyroid replacement therapy about ten days ago.

It seems to have "kicked in."

She had a couple of days and nights with almost no sleep.

Before starting on treatment, we think she was averaging close to 20 hours of sleep a day.

The two nights she didn't sleep, my wife and I didn't sleep much either.

She spent the nights "wired", drooling, hyperventilating, panting, looking out all the windows and drinking a lot of water.

The vet agreed that we needed to cut the dose.

She slept through the night last night...and so did we!
