Product Description
Thyro-Tabs® Canine are a prescription medication. They are formulated for use in dogs with hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), and they work as replacement therapy.
Who is VetOne Thyro-Tabs Canine, 120 ct for?
For dogs with hypothyroidism.
Why use VetOne Thyro-Tabs Canine, 120 ct?
Thyro-Tabs® Canine are used for dogs with hypothyroidism. This condition, otherwise known as underactive thyroid disease, occurs when a dog's thyroid gland fails to make a sufficient amount of thyroid hormone. When this medication is used, it works as replacement therapy to balance the thyroid. With balanced thyroid hormone, dogs experience an improvement in their mental and physical health.
How does VetOne Thyro-Tabs Canine, 120 ct work?
This medication contains T4, which is synthetic tetraiodothyronine sodium salt. The synthetic form of this ingredient is an identical replica of the hormone produced naturally by the thyroid gland of a dog. For this reason, Thyro-Tabs® Canine are an excellent replacement therapy solution for dogs suffering from hypothyroidism.
Active Ingredients(s):
Tetraiodothyronine Sodium Salt (Levothyroxine Sodium, USP)
