Hahah so after all these years of Bowser losing his hair and having health problems, I finally bit the bullet and had a $200 thyroid test done on him.

Got the results today! Vet says that he is not only hypothyroid, but significantly so! Wow! She was surprised too. He is not even 4 years old yet.

He gained almost 10 pounds in 3 months! Insanity. And his hair is getting worse every day.

So what started out as Alopecia, is actually Hypothyroidism. Vet even wants before and after pictures for the clinic since he is super textbook in his symptoms.

My poor baby! Do you guys have any experience with this condition? Are the meds expensive? Not looking forward to this. Hahah.

The price of the meds will depend on dosage. If youcan get the correct dosage in one pill then it will be much cheaper. You can buy generic thyroid meds for humans in the US for as little as $4 a month. Name brands run about $30 per month. Unfortuately, I have significant personal experience with thyroid issues and meds.
Speaking from personal experience, I know that it can take some time to get the dosage right. His reaction seems a bit intense to me and I would consult the vet. I do wish you the very best. Things will get straightened out and he will be back to his old self soon.
