What is Thyro-L?
Thyro-L is a medication that is given when a horse is not producing enough thyroid hormone and to correct conditions associated with hypothyroidism.

Who is it for?
Horses. The safe use of this medication in pregnant mares has not been determined.

What are the benefits?

* Serves as a substitute for thyroid hormone
* Helps correct conditions associated with hypothyroidism
* Easily administered in your horse's daily grain ration

How does Thyro-L work?
Thyro-L contains levothyroxine, which acts similar to the hormone thyroxine, which is produced naturally by the thyroid gland. Thyroxine normally regulates many body processes. When the body is not producing enough of this hormone on its own, the condition is called hypothyroidism. Thyro-L works like thyroxine to maintain normal metabolism in the body.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Thyro-L is a branded generic form of this medication. Other branded generic forms include Equine Thyroid Supplement, Thyrozine Powder, Thyroxine-L Powder, Levoxine Powder and Pala-Tech Equine Thyroid Supplement.

How is it given?
It is given orally with your horses daily grain ration or as a top dressing. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Differences exist between brands. Do not change brands if possible. If there is a need to change brands, your veterinarian may need to recheck thyroid hormone levels and adjust the dose if indicated.

What results can I expect?
Thyro-L helps to replace the hormone that the body should normally produce. It will not cure the thyroid condition, but will relieve the symptoms. Because every horse reacts differently to this medication, your veterinarian may monitor thyroid hormone levels in the blood every 2-4 weeks while adjusting the dose. Periodic testing is also necessary while the horse is taking Thyro-L.

It generally takes several weeks of therapy to see an effect. In almost all cases, the horse will need to be on a thyroid supplement such as Thyro-L for life.

What form(s) does it come in?
This medication comes in a powder form.
