Hypothyroidism refers to a deficiency of the thyroid hormone resulting in a hormone imbalance. Symptoms may include skin problems, hair loss, brittle or dry coats, obesity, lethargy and anemia.  To determine if your dog has hypothyroidism blood tests must be performed.  If your pet is determined to be hypothyroid then it will need to be on medication for life and require blood tests on a regular basis.
