I have a beagle who has pancreatitis so I have to watch his diet I also have a cat that had benign tumours in her thyroid which sped up her metabolism she would cry frantically for food 24/7 so I got her checked out. After a course of radioactive therapy the tumours where gone and she was back to her old self with no harm to her. It was expensive but they are my fur babies I also have a border collie who has skin allergies and in spring he suffers. Our vet told us to put him on human analgesics which help a bit. Do get your little one checked by the vet just for your own peace of mind.
