Has anyone had experience with a horse having low thyroid levels in a blood test? I just briefly talked with my vet's receptionist, and she mentioned the possibility of putting my horse on thyroid meds because of his blood test results. I had a blood panel and Lyme test done on him because he has not seemed well for the past year. He was treated for EPM with three medications last year, but he still doesn't seem right. He is lethargic, sore and aggressive (at times).
I've read a few articles that make it sound like thyroid problems aren't usually an issue for horses. I would love it if thyroid meds improved his attitude/ well-being, but I'm almost afraid of medicating him and ending up with a hyper, aggressive horse.
