What is Hypothyroidism?
The lack of thyroid hormone causes hypothyroidism, a common disease of middle age and older dogs.
How will Thyroxine L help my dog?
L-Thyroxine helps to replace the hormone that the body should normally produce. It will not cure the thyroid condition, but will relieve the symptoms.
Your veterinarian may monitor thyroid hormone levels in the blood every 2-4 weeks while adjusting the dose. Periodic testing is also necessary while
the pet is taking L-Thyroxine.
How long will it take to improve my dog's condition?
It generally takes several weeks of therapy to see the benefits of therapy. In almost all cases, the pet will need to be on a thyroid supplement such as L-Thyroxine for life.
L-Thyroxine is given by mouth. Check with your Veterinarian to see if you may give this medication with food.
