cheyenne is 15  wow!.

He is on two pain medications for disk problems plus Levothyroxine 0.7mg.

took him to new groomer and she shaved him and how his hair has thinned out on his back  and is not growing.  I'm wondering if it is from being shaved or.the Levothyroxine 0.7mg.  He has been also losing weight.  Eats well, poops and pees just fine but I do believe he has a hearing problem now and is not seeing well either.  He no longer jumps up if I  ask him if he wants to eat I have to tap him to get his attention.  Not interested in walking just does his duty then heads for home.  Sleeps a LOT.

Really concerned about the loss of hair...

Oh I wouldn't change thyroid meds without confirming it with his Vet!

thanks Jan, I have already cut back on the Thyroid Medication.  Poor baby is really looking shabby but is still our happy Doddle.

Shaving would not have caused this.  The medication could be a contributing factor.  Thyroid issues can cause hair loss too.

Best wishes.
