Thanks for the advice on herbs.

Apparently her thyroid function is normal. My vet had suspected thyroid problems from the beginning because she didn't want to eat, so we had a blood sample sent away to a university lab for a more comprehensive test than they could run on site, but those results came in last Thursday and show that she is neither hyperthyroid nor hypothyroid.

I will start her on milk thistle and look for the other herbs too. Can you recommend an approximate dose on the milk thistle, for a 52 pound dog?

Also, she is getting B vitamins, pancreatic enzymes, tums (to bind phosphorus), probiotics, and occasionally pepto-bismol (just when diarrhea flares up), so please let me know if you are aware of any drug interactions between any of those and the herbs you have recommended. I will of course also keep my vet informed of what I'm giving her, but he doesn't have experience using herbs so probably won't be able to answer that question.

Thanks for your time.
