    Hi! Yes..thyroid is often an induction of skin problems. Even in cats! Glad you figured it out! Many here use Fomm with great success. If Duke int having food related problems, I would hesitate to switch..why rock the boat! but..if you are already going o change..Fromm is a great choice. I hope Duke gets to feeling well very quickly!

    Thyroid is SO IMPORTANT! I had no idea how so until a friend of mine's Giant Schnauzer turned into a TOTAL JERK. This thing -- big as a pony -- and wow; he was moody, snippy, they called him "aggressive" (which he wasn't but it sure looked like that) and now, he's on his meds and a total teddy bear -- just like before.

    So glad your vet found that, so now he can get the meds he needs, plus FROMM is a great food. We feed it to our bullies.

    WOW! I know they blow their coats twice a year. That's fantastic that it's not thyroid!! You have quite the stud there with Duke! Thanks for coming back and posting this.
