Laurelin Posted February 4, 2009 Report Share Posted February 4, 2009 Anyone have any experience with it? My old sheltie was just diagnosed with it, which was a major relief because we thought his tumor had come back. I'm taking him tomorrow for another blood test (I'm not sure why they need to run another one exactly) and I can ask the vet then a few questions. I had a couple though. I hear if a dog has allergies, then hypothyroidism can really aggravate them. Trey's allergic to fleas and seems to be having a really rough time trying to get over this last batch of fleas he's had. He got a Capstar but even though I had given him Frontline, his fleas aren't going away. The vet says that a lot of people are having problems with frontline this year. Also, I keep reading about it affecting the dog mentally. Well, Trey is a really weird dog. Is it possible all his mental issues are from having hypothyroidism and we didn't know it? What I read is it causes dogs to be 'mentally dull' and Trey's definitely mentally dull, lol! We honestly thought there was something developmentally wrong with him. I'll feel kind of bad if it was this the whole time. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
