Eddie will be 11 in a few weeks. He has hypothyroidism
I was wondering if the vet did a full thyroid panel on Eddie to diagnose his hypothyroidism? My 11 year old Mia started having a slightly lower T4 two years ago, however I do full thyroid panels via Hemopet on her as well and they show that the thyroid is normal. I understand that some older dogs can get a lower T4, however that does not always mean hypothyroidism. However, some vets assume hypothyroidism just on T4 alone. Jean Dodd’s has some good articles on hypothyroidism and is very knowledgeable.
