Hello Steve, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Cookie.

Ii have a few questions to ask first, if you don't mind:

1. Just to clarify, she has been diagnosed with Hyperthyroid Disease but is not currently taking any medication for it (since she vomits the pills)?
2. Her stools are loose when she defecates on the kitchen floor?
3. Has she had any blood work done recently?
4. I'm assuming you've wormed her? If so, can you tell me what you gave her?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
