So the vet said that Chance was hypothyroid so he put him on .8 mg of Thyro Thyrosyn 2x daily, (he weighs 92 lbs.). The results of his re-check blood draw they found him to be hyperthyroid. So they said they want to try him out at 1/2 the original dose. Okay fine...but here's the thing. I probably forgot as much as I remembered his night time dose, (I know, bad mom
). On the day before his test he got his usual morning dose but the I skipped the evening dose because, since he usually gets the 2nd dose late, (like 11pm), and he had to have a pill 4-6 hours before his appointment, which put it at 5am, I skipped the dose the night before. So I'm thinking that maybe he needs to go on an even lower dose than what they're saying. I hope I'm explaining this right...
Anyway, they left a message about all this and I need to call them back, so I'll of course bring all this up with them when I call, but I just wanted to get some opinions here first. TIA!
Another thing, it's been 4 weeks since he first started on the med and he's already lost 4 lbs. Do they work that fast? Edited to add
: Just called the vet and they gave me his levels from the two tests. First one was .5, second one was 5.9.
