Hypothyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder in dogs. The present paper puts on record various ailments associated with primary hypothyroidism caused by thyroxine (T 4 ) deficiency and peripheral disorders in euthyroid dogs, which mimic hypothyroidism. The study undertaken on 10,172 dogs presented at the clinics with skin and coat incongruity, revealed clinical manifestations suggestive of hypothyroidism in 182 (1.78%) dogs, out of which 47 (25.8%) dogs demonstrated significantly (P0… Expand
Prevalence of hypothyroidism in dogs in Haryana
TLDR
Prevalence of hypothyroidism was studied in 1728 adult dogs aged one year or greater brought for various health reasons from September 2010 to March 201 to the Pet Section, Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, LUVAS, Hisar and adjoining areas, and the prevalence was found to be 0.4 per cent.

Neurological manifestations of hypothyroidism: a retrospective study of 29 dogs.
TLDR
Neuromuscular signs in association with hypothyroidism are described in 29 dogs, and dogs with vestibular deficits had abnormal brainstem auditory-evoked responses (BAER), including increased latencies of P1-P6 and decreased amplitude of P4,5-N5. Expand
Canine pseudohypothyroidism and covert hypothyroidism.
TLDR
A definitive diagnosis of hypothyroidism in an adult dog is a retrospective assessment based on complete recovery after appropriate thyroid hormone replacement. Expand
Effects of moderate to severe osteoarthritis on canine thyroid function.
TLDR
Based on the results of this study, osteoarthritis does not need to be considered a factor influencing thyroid function evaluation in dogs, and no dogs would have been misdiagnosed as hypothyroid. Expand
Assessment of thyroid function in dogs with low plasma thyroxine concentration.
TLDR
The results of this study confirm earlier observations that, in dogs, accurate biochemical diagnosis of primary hypothyroidism poses specific problems. Expand
Portal vein and aortic thromboses in a Siberian husky with ehrlichiosis and hypothyroidism.
TLDR
The authors concluded that the thrombi were primarily caused by chronic ehrlichiosis, based on the clinical findings and the response to treatment. Expand
The effect of levothyroxine treatment on resting energy expenditure of hypothyroid dogs.
TLDR
Energy expenditure of apparent rest was lower in untreated hypothyroid dogs compared with reference values for EE, and after treatment with L-thyroxine, EE was significantly (P < .05) higher than pretreatment values. Expand
Thyroxine-responsive unilateral forelimb lameness and generalized neuromuscular disease in four hypothyroid dogs.
TLDR
Four dogs were examined because of unilateral forelimb lameness, and all dogs were determined to be thyroid deficient, and L-thyroxine supplementation was initiated and generalized neuromyopathy was diagnosed. Expand
ERG findings in three hypothyroid adult dogs with and without levothyroxine treatment.
TLDR
The results indicate that a dose of 20 microg/kg of LTh given to adult dogs was accompanied by a marked peak time shortening of both photopic and scotopic ERGs, without affecting other ERG parameters. Expand

Until a clinically useful canine TSH assay is available, a valid test of thyroid hypofunction should (1) take into consideration valid (or at least predictive) measurement of the free T4Expand
Interactions between thyroid disorders and kidney disease
TLDR
There are several interactions between thyroid and kidney functions in each other organ's disease states and a detailed knowledge of all these interactions is important for both the nephrologists and endocrinologists for optimal management of the patient. Expand
