Signs of Hypothyroidism in Dogs
The thyroid gland is a small gland in a dog's neck. This gland is an endocrine gland that secretes hormones for body development. Hormones from the thyroid gland control body metabolism, the use of calcium and the way cells use oxygen. When the thyroid does not give off enough hormones, the dog develops hypothyroidism. A hypothyroid dog often has serious health problems.
