The thyroid gland consists of two small lobes shaped like butterflies, one on each side of the windpipe (trachea) located in the neck. This gland produces thyroid hormones whose primary function is regulating and maintaining your pet’s metabolic rate, in turn affecting their overall health and wellbeing.
Another hormone, called thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), is produced by the pituitary gland and controls the production of the thyroid gland hormones T3 and T4. If the thyroid is not functioning properly, there could be an impact on your pet’s body weight, heart rate, skin and coat, digestive, and reproductive health.
Hyperthyroidism can affect middle-aged to older cats (between 4 and 22 years of age), seldom developing in dogs. When hyperthyroidism occurs, the thyroid gland is overactive, producing too much thyroid hormone and speeding up metabolism.
Common symptoms and possible signs of hyperthyroidism include weight loss (even with increased appetite), diarrhea symptoms, vomiting, heat intolerance, a dull, dry or oily coat with excessive shedding, rapid or fast breathing, increased water consumption and urination, increased or decreased activity, and behavioral changes such as nervousness, restlessness, or feelings of stress.
