Patriot is the GSP my wife and I rescued about 3 years ago, we guestimate he was 1 year old at that time.
Recently we've noticed his fur is less thick then we think it should be, and his appetitie isn't all that great (but he's never been a really great eater). He's also started to shake quite a lot, even when sitting in front of the wood stove.
I could see how thin fur would make him cold, but even right in front of the stove where it's plenty warm? I tried doing a google search but no luck, anyone have any ideas?
If it were me I'd take him to the vet and ask for a once-over including a blood panel to make sure his thyroid is OK. I don't think thyroid problems are terribly common in GSPs so it could be something else entirely, but the symptoms would make me wonder.
