Thanks so much. Definitely not good to see results not expecting at 1 am after a stressful few days.
I am really glad that we have something to rule out and have started the list with the symptoms. I'm also glad that we used Hemopet because possibly they may be able to recommend additional testing that can be done for allergies and sensitivities. I am still trying to rack my brain to figure out why this only happens to him from early April through August and only about a total of three times. It's as if his body can't handle the extra load of more hours in the day and a more rigorous daily schedule since we are outside playing alot more with extra daylight hours and the clocks being turned back. Then when the summer ends and we go back to a schedule where we are inside and there are more sleeping hours, there are no problems at all. Also, it seems that it happens the same day or a day later after and extremely exciting/stressful day. Tyson slept so much from last fall to now that he gained 9 - 10 pounds and has a bald spot on his belly from laying down so much! Not normal!
I was shocked today when the new vet called at 7:00 pm to discuss the preliminary results we received from Hemopet! I think we have a keeper! He had originally said that if the results for thyroid were negative we would consult a veterinary behaviorist as that may be of more help than my current behaviorist that is not a vet but relied on my previous vet that Tyson was perfectly healthy. However, now he thinks we should go to a neurologist first. He is calling in the referral tomorrow. I'm so happy that he is going to help us!
