ThyroVet (L-Thyroxine) is a veterinary medication used to treat hypothyroidism in dogs and cats. Hypothyroidism is a condition associated with low circulating thyroid hormones. If your dog or cat has this condition, ThyroVet (L-Thyroxine) is a synthetic hormone replacement for the thyroid hormone. Once the medication has been administered, the active ingredient, Levothyroxine, is then absorbed into the bloodstream and carries out the tasks that a thyroid hormone usually would. Your pet will soon have more energy and vitality.
ThyroVet comes in tablet form and is taken orally. It can be given to your pet directly or mixed together with your pet's food, and the dosage is usually determined by examining the blood levels of thyroxine. The prescription is sure to provide your pet with fast relief and obvious overall improvement in his health.
