I am not sure when your dog started on thyroid medication, but it can be a bit of a surprise to owners to see their usually sedate dog, suddenly have tons of energy. This is quite normal. Sings of an excess of thyroid medication include panting, restlessness, increased water consumption and urination, greatly increased appetite, and increased heart rate.

Your veterinarian, can take a blood sample to test your dog's thyroid level to see if the dose he/she is receiving is too high.
