What is the Treatment for Hypothyroidism in Maltipoos?
Luckily, this is treatable and a puppy or dog can live a full and happy life when on the proper medication. Your dog’s veterinarian should prescribe hormone replacement medication. In most cases, a dog will need this medication for the rest of his or her life.
Once a dog is on this medication, they must be monitored on a regular basis to ensure that they are receiving the proper dose as they age.
This medication usually works very well. A Maltipoo should show signs of increased energy as soon as 2 weeks. If a dog had the symptom of coat loss, within 4 to 6 months most, if not all, of the coat should grow back. All other symptoms should clear up by 2 months at the latest.
