Hypothyroidism|Thyroid Issues in Senior German Shepherds

Updated: Apr 10




If your senior German Shepherd has been feeling a little off lately, it's possible that he or she may be suffering from hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a condition that causes the thyroid gland to underproduce thyroid hormone, which then causes the metabolism to slow. If left untreated, hypothyroidism can result in weight gain, lethargy, and a host of other health problems.


In this #LifeWithOldDogs® blog post and podcast, we'll discuss what hypothyroidism is, how to spot the signs, and the treatment options available. We hope you find this information useful!
