Have you had the Vet do a full thyroid on your Ridgeback. After my boys vaccines at 3 years old he got very sick and was autoimmune thyroid.
Dr Jean Dodd saved Kotas life. All the other Vets missed it.
And with the skin and other things you are talking about,clinical, signs I would have that test done Free t 3 and 4 full thyroid test. AND you have to ask for it for most neighborhood Vets don't know about genetic thyroid in the Ridgebacks
