All of these symptoms developed over a six month period. At first I thought she was starting to age. The panting and discomfort were the signs that caused me to really notice something was wrong.

– hair loss – especially tail. Her tail started looking like a rat tail

– Always hungry – I could feed her and it was never enough. She would have eaten herself to death

– Constant thirst – I noticed this most in the morning when she would wake me to get out of bed so she could get a drink. She would stand at the bottle for at least 15 min

– Pot Belly

– Could no longer jump on sofa

– She was very gassy, in the evening she would be so gassy she would not be able to get comfortable. She was stressing, panting and pacing because of this.

– Panting when she was not hot.

– thin skin – her skin resembled that of a 95 year old and would tear easy. I had to be careful when I clipped her.

– low energy level

– no shine to her coat
