Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Sadie. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
It would help me to know her weight, if she takes .3 once or twice a day, and what the actual number was on the test in August.
There are things you can try to get her hair to grow. You can try melatonin, 3 to 6 mg twice a day. You can also try flax seed oil with lignans (must have lignans) 1 to 2 teaspoons twice daily.
Let me know what other questions you have.
I hope you are able to see what I wrote. Let me know how she is doing and what other questions you have.
It would help for me to see the actual numbers. .3 mg for a 50 pound dog is a low dose, but I would check with your veterinarian before stopping the medication.
I might try the melatonin and/or the flax seed with lignans. If her hair starts to grown back, her hair loss may not be hypothryoidism. You don't have to stop the medication to try these supplements.
How is Sadie? Can I help with anything else?
