MaryJane Posted July 29, 2013 Share Posted July 29, 2013 Lucy's recent bloodwork indicated that she is hypothyroid and she got started on thyroid medicines yesterday. Coincidentally, her seizures have gotten more frequent which could be a side effect of hypothyroidism. I'm still waiting for the results but, the doctor said - she was so low that she was not even at the low normal which would be normal for a greyhound. My question is that she got started on 0.6 mg bid which seems like it might be a normal start dose for a regular dog BUT NOT FOR A GREYHOUND. We are re-checking her bloods in three weeks but, I've adjusted the dose down to 0.3 bid rather than the 0.6 bid of the levythyroxine. For people that have their dogs on thyroid supplements - what medicine are you giving, how much of it, and where are you getting it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
