Ultimate Guide to Thyro-Tabs (L-Thyroxine)

Meet the Pet Thyroid Replacement: Thyro-Tabs!

Thyro-Tabs is an FDA-approved, veterinarian-recommended medication that treats hypothyroidism in dogs and cats. Thyro-Tabs is a daily oral tablet that is determined by the pet's blood levels of Thyroxine. The prescription is sure to provide your pet with relief and overall improvement in health.

How do Thyro-Tabs work?

Your cat or dog will be tested for Thyroxine hormone levels of the bloodstream. Thyroxine is the main hormone secreted into the bloodstream by the thyroid gland. Too much production of Thyroxine released into the bloodstream causes hyperthyroidism, and too little production of Thyroxine by the thyroid gland is known as hypothyroidism.

If the pet's bloodstream has a low level of Thyroxine (i.e., hypothyroidism), Thyro-Tabs works as a synthetic hormone replacement where the active ingredient Levothyroxine replaces the missing thyroid hormone. The ingredient Levothyroxine is absorbed into the bloodstream and carries out the tasks that a thyroid hormone usually would.

This treatment should demonstrate more energy and vitality in your pet!

How are Thyro-Tabs administered?

Thyro-Tabs are administered orally once a day and aid dogs and cats' low circulating thyroid hormone (i.e., hypothyroidism). This is done with the synthetic replacement thyroid therapy. The oral tablets can be given directly or mixed together to be eaten with the pet's food.

From 0.1 to .0.2 per 10 lbs. of body weight, the initial daily dose is based on the pet's weight. The medication is administered either at once in the morning or once in evening installments. The dosage is then adjusted according to the changing response in the pet's bloodstream. The Thyro-Tab pills or tablets that are available are 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, and 1.0 mg.

Peak therapeutic effect may not be reached until four to six weeks after the first administration.

What are the precautions of which you should be aware?

Pets who are breeding, pregnant, or nursing have not been evaluated. Pets with underlying heart conditions or diagnosed cardiac disease should be closely monitored. Those who take cardiac medication should not take this medication due to negative interactions.

What are Thyroxine tabs side effects of which you should be aware?

There are no side effects in most cases; however, Thyro-Tabs rare adverse reactions reported are vomiting, anorexia, lethargy, hyperactivity, dermatitis, excessive thirst, increased urination, and diarrhea. Consult a veterinarian if any of the above occur.

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. What are Levothyroxine side effects?

    Check with your veterinarian immediately if any of the following side effects occur while taking levothyroxine: decreased appetite, itchiness, polydipsia, polyurinia, and increased or decreased activity level.

  2. What is the difference between Thyro-tabs for dogs and cats?

    In terms of Thyro-Tab dosage, cats take as much as humans but dogs require a higher dosage more than humans. In an overdose, cats may appear apathetic, and dogs may appear more hyperactive.

  3. Is Levothyroxine gluten free?

    Yes. Many prescription medicines contain gluten. Check your medicine cabinet for kinds of starches, dextrate or dextrin, maltose, or caramel coloring. These derive from potato, corn, tapioca, or wheat.

  4. What is Levothyroxine?

    The active ingredient Levothyroxine is a thyroid medicine that regulates production of Thyroxine, a hormone normally produced by a pet's thyroid gland and returns their energy and vitality. In veterinary medicine, Levothyroxine is absorbed into the bloodstream and acts as a synthetic thyroid hormone in order to treat hypothyroidism in cats and dogs.

  5. What do I do if I miss a dose of Thyroxine Tab?

    Most medications do the same: if a dose is missed, take the next dose as soon as possible, keep a steadily regular schedule, and do not administer double doses.
