    I am interested to know how many people have taken their dog to the vet because of behavioural issues to actually find that the dog has an underlying medical condition.

    Many people recommend the vet as being the first stop when dealing with a behavioural issue, but how many turn out to be the reason

    Very interested in responses.

    Thank you

    No, not Rossi!

    Although I'm not convinced scooby is medically sound. His aggression is very random and I believe he may have a thyroid problem. He's never been taken in to confirm this though as I don't have the spare cash for him as I need it for my own dogs.

    Oscar was gradually getting grumpier and grumpier. Turned out he had hypothyroid and his temperament is much better.

    Although technically I got them neutered coz they were showing behavioural problems like peeing indoors, humping the cat, etc....does that count??:confused:

    Um, I'm pretty sure the problems I'm having now are a combination of teenage dog and the fact that he missed a load of socialization because of a medical condition, but that's not quite what you asked though, lol.
