Your dogs thyroid is a small gland that sits in the middle of your dogs neck, that is made up of two lobes that sit either side of the trachea or windpipe. It’s main function is to assist in controlling metabolism by producing the hormone thyroxine along with some other hormones. The most common condition affecting this gland in dogs is hypothyroidism – a condition which causes a lack of the thyroid hormone thyroxine, leading to an underactive gland and slower metabolism. The effects of thyroid problems can be far reaching to your dogs health and so from my perspective, its so important to protect the health of this small gland.
