Levothyroxine Hypothyroidism Treatment for Dogs

Thyro-Tabs for Dogs provide replacement therapy for insufficient thyroid hormone, or hypothyroidism. In dogs with an underperforming or absent thyroid gland, this medication helps restore health and normalize basic bodily functions. Thyro-Tabs pet meds require a prescription from your veterinarian. Available in multiple strengths for easy dosing.

Thyro-Tabs are a treatment for hypothyroidism in dogs. They are indicated for use when the thyroid gland underperforms or when it has been removed, resulting in thyroid hormone insufficiency. This product replaces thyroid hormone to normalize biological processes and remedy symptoms associated with hypothyroidism.

  • Remedies a wide variety of skin and coat, metabolic, nerve and muscle, and reproductive symptoms
  • Greatly enhances your dog's quality of life
  • Affordable generic option
  • Packaged in multiple strengths for dosing convenience
  • Easily orally administered, either directly or in food
  • Not associated with side effects when used as prescribed

Thyro-Tabs are intended for use only in dogs with hypothyroidism. Do not administer to other animals or to any dog that does not have a prescription. Not for use in humans.
