Hypothyroidism in dogs

New update! The blood results came back for Alexis and she had very low thyroid levels. Vet put her on Soloxine, and I have to give her 1/2 a pill twice a day. I asked how long she'll have to be on these and was told "most likely, lifetime".

On a brighter note, it could explain her weight gain (she's up to 15 lbs and should only be 10 lbs) and also will likely cure her sores and balding spots in her skin.

I have to bring her back in 2 months for another blood test to see if her levels are better after being medicated for 60 days.

Will keep you updated!
