I thought I'd ask everyone here about supplements. About a month ago, our 8 y.o. girl dog Loki was diagnosed with low thyroid. Before she started the thyroid meds, our vet suggested we give her 3V-Caps, Pet Tabs and melatonin, all of which she took and which temporarily seemed to help her coat and shedding, but the underlying cause was low thyroid. Since being on the thryroid meds, Loki's coat is back to its wonderful lustrous black and white.
Do you think we need to continue the other supplements, specifically the melatonin and 3V-Caps? I'd love to discontinue the 3V-caps, since they're the pills that cost the most. Not much, but hey, every little bit helps, right? It'll help pay for the teeth cleaning she's due for!
Has anyone else kept their B on supplements while also using thyroid meds?
