Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet for Answers ASAP
Did your vet do a urinalysis before prescribing the clavamox? Do you know what they found? How long has Baby been on thyroid supplement? Has her T4 level been checked recently?
Urinalysis was done - UTI was diagnosis so clavamox was prescribed. Did not do T4 test for thyroid. She is currently on a dosage of 1 and a half .1 mg of thyrotab 2x Daily plus 1 and a half .7 mg go the same twice daily
So the thyroid total dose is 1.2 mg twice a day? How much does Baby weigh? How long as she been taking the thyrotab?
She weighs 81 lbs and has been taking the thyroid meds for about 8 mos
At 80 pounds, 1.2 mg twice a day is a pretty high dose. Has her T4 been checked since starting the medication? Getting too much thyroid medication can make a dog shake and pant.
I have to go see an appointment, so am switching to Q&A mode. I will return and answer more of your questions, but it could be 30 min. Is that ok?
it was increased about 3 mos ago to bring up her thyroid levels but has not been checked since then
