Do you suspect your Dalmatian has a low thyroid?  These are pictures of our dog prior to low thyroid determination...


This is known as rat tail.

These symptoms cleared up following drug therapy:

  • Lack of coat - sparse, straw-like hair
  • Lethargic (no energy to play)
  • Cold extremities (including muzzle and lips)
  • Droopy eye lids

For more information contact your veterinarian and see the Dalmatian Club of America web page on Hypothyroidism.
