Why Would An Overactive Thyroid Cause Krista’S Weight Loss, Sweating, And Elevated Heart Rate??

mjsmommy I was also concerned about the weight loss, but not too much. She is just so energetic and loves to be out in the yard with my other dogs. I want her to stay healthy and happy! 🙂

I don’t know if it’s a problem or not…she’s been losing weight since she started this meds though, so maybe there are two issues? My vet mentioned that some dogs will lose some of their hair when on thyroid meds for hypothyroidism….not sure if that applies here since Krista has never had any problems with her thyroid before. Maybe she would have lost more hair on another hormone therapy???

The only thing I’m really worried about is excessive panting/sweating….it seems like she gets hot very easily! This could be related to all of these changes OR something else entirely…..I’ll talk with my vet again soon…we’re going Thursday after work 🙁

Thanks everyone!!! 😀 Oh yeah…and thanks for your sweet comments on her pics!! 😯 They are pretty cute even without the sweater LOL!!
