Do you know about this very common condition that affects dogs? Many dog owners don't know anything about it – until it happens to their dog. The symptoms can be confusing – many dog owners will simply rationalize that there is nothing wrong with their dog.

But something is wrong. The condition is called Hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism is a disease of the thyroid gland. The symptoms can vary but in general, dogs will gain weight, sometimes be a little lethargic and develop a dull haircoat. Some dogs will lose their hair or be very slow to grow back hair that was previously lost.
