Small animal practitioners often have questions about their canine patients with thyroid disease. Is this dog just overweight? Is there a breed predisposition? What test do I order? Do these results make sense? Is this therapy working?

This session will provide a review of the pathophysiology, clinical signs, and other factors that lead to a differential diagnosis. The range of available tests and how to decide which to use will be covered along with review and discussion of case results, including how to interpret equivocal results. Monitoring treatment therapies will also be discussed. We encourage attendees to bring questions with them. There will be opportunities to ask questions throughout the seminar, and attendees can ask questions in a more personal setting during the mixer at the end of the day.

Participants will leave the session with an increased understanding of:

  • Pathophysiology of thyroid dysfunction
  • Rationale for testing
  • Effective case management utilizing test results

Please submit any questions to: chapinco@dcpah.msu.edu
