The vet did a full physical and took some blood. The physical showed that he has a low temp (96.8 and she tried 2 thermometers). She checked his teeth, they are going to be done next week probably but they most likely aren't the immediate cause of the weight loss. She also found that he has a grade 2 holosystolic (I think is what she wrote) heart murmur, which is new. Cushings might be a possibility, because his coat is heavier than normal, rough and kind of wavy.
First she is going to run complete blood work and I will hear back about that tonight. If that turns up normal she is going to ask my permission to run a Cushings test (I guess from the blood she already has?).
