Thyroid test/age

I was recommended by a Basenji breeder friend to get Buddy's thyroid tested now that he's a year old. He's not showing any of the signs of low thyroid but she said he should get checked. I just had him at the vet 2 weeks ago for a yeast infection and she said, without me saying anything about it that she'd check his thyroid but she felt he's too young.

Never too young to get a base line…. and please look at this link it is pretty much written in layman's terms and follows Dr. Dodds recommentations.

See the section on Current that explains about idiopathic hypothyroidism and autoimmune thyroiditis.

Then see the section on Current Testing Recommendations
