Hi, don't know if this will help or not but my 13 year old cat has thyroid problems, and she is on the medication for it. Before we knew what was wrong she was having loose stools all over the place, drinking and peeing a lot, and lost a lot of weight. After she was diagnosed she was given pills, and retested after a month. Now I give her a pill every day with a pill popper I got from the vet.. It's been about 3 months, and she's back to normal, lots of energy, and does her business in the catbox, and it's normal. I hope this helps. None of my dogs have had thyroid problems though, fortunately, but it sounds like the same treatment for both.

I've never run into thyroid problems with any of our Collies, fortunately for us - but that also means I can do nothing to help except to say I will keep you and your little one in my thoughts and prayers.

Hope the medication will improve things for your pup quickly!!!

My guy was just put on them this past summer in June. They started working within a month which was when he had to have another blood test to see if he was at the right levels. We decreased one of the meds and the other stayed the same. We just had another blood test taken last Thursday....don't have results back yet.

Hope that helps.

It can take 2 to 4 weeks. Years ago I had a dog that was put on a med. for Thyroid. It really helped her. Hugs to your fur baby!

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.
