Description


Hypothyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder of canines, and up to 80% of cases result from autoimmune (lymphocytic) thyroiditis. The heritable nature of this disorder poses significant genetic implications for breeding stock. Thus, accurate diagnosis of the early compensatory stages of canine autoimmune thyroiditis leading up to hypothyroidism affords important genetic and clinical options for prompt intervention and case management. *Baseline Thyroid Profiles *Clinical Signs of Canine Hypothyroidism *Genetic Screening for Thyroid Disease *Aberrant Behavior and Thyroid Dysfunction
