    DefaultLosing weight, no energy, bad skin and coat

    Maggie is in pretty bad shape for only being 9 yo. She is going to the vet today to see what is up. She already had blood work done and that came back normal. She has been having bad lack of energy and losing weight for only past few weeks. She eats normal and pees and poops normal. The skin condition has been a battle for at least a year. She is always scratching and licking. We have switched food several times. Gone from no corn to adding fish and salmon oils.....brush, brush, brush...poor baby. Don't know what to do. She looks so sad and just sleeps all the time. she plays with chuck it for only a few throws. Any ideas?

    Okay, I just thought of something....We just recently adopted an African grey parrot. Could she be allergic to that??? Just throwing that out there because that is the only change that has been made at our house in the past month???

    Well, after vet visit and full panel blood work, Maggie has Addison's disease. Poor baby. her skin problem is an easy fix, she is on special shampoo and needs a bath once a week and other coat treatment day after her bath. Sorry I don't have pictures of her shampoo and treatment stuff. her coat is awesome after just one bath!!!! I will post pictures tonight! she is to be given benedryl and prednisone. She did not scratch or lick once last night!!,
