Description

Levothyroxine is an oral prescription tablet that provides hormone replacement therapy in dogs and cats to treat the symptoms of hypothyroidism when thyroid production is lower than normal. Having a balanced amount of thyroid hormone is important in sustaining normal mental health and physical activity for your pets. Customers may receive this drug under the name Thyro-Tabs.

Uses

For replacement therapy for diminished thyroid function in dogs.

Possible Side Effects

When administered at an appropriate dose to pets requiring thyroid hormone replacement, there should not be any adverse effects associated with therapy.

Drug & Food Interactions

Interactions may occur with other medications including supplements, vitamins, estrogens, digoxin, warfarin, epinephrine, insulin or norepinephrine.

Precautions

Do not use in dogs with thyrotoxicosis or uncorrected adrenal insufficiency. Different brands of levothyroxine may not work the same. If the pills look different from the last filling, speak to your pharmacist or veterinarian. Do not use in animals with hyperthyroidism, a condition in which the body produces too much thyroid hormone. Tell your veterinarian if your pet could be pregnant, has been diagnosed with Addison's disease (hypoadrenocorticism) or has any heart problems.
