-- Which KC will take Thyroid issues serious (http://forums.ukcdogs.com/showthread.php?threadid=928517858)

Mr. Lambert

I want to clarify my post, I advocate taking good care of ALL of ones dogs period. I DO NOT think a dog with medical issues should be put down if the meds make the dog healthy. I do not agree with anyone saying otherwise. I only agreed with Daltons position that not everyone takes good care of their dogs or use preventive measures to prevent their dogs from getting certain diseases. Culling is something that rests solely on every individual and I do not have a say in others business. I did not cull the dog I owned with thyroid issues, he was a good coondog and had been neutered, I sold him. Dave

The only dogs that seem to have the thyroid issue are the ones that do all the winning, and are the most powerful hounds in the country... You wouldn't have to volunteer your dogs because there not in that group, I can tell you right now, they don't have it! Lol!

would you rather pay the $ for a certified pup with no genetic marker for thyroid or waste time training a dog that has to be took to the vet to be tested every 90 days to have its medicine adjusted to preform and win in world class competition events . how much time and money vetting a thyroid dog does it take to win a world hunt ?

The thing about the thyroid dogs that gets me is these dogs are performing at a high level and don't even feel good, you have to wonder if they weren't sick the type dog they would be.

Edd I think the medicine the owners are giving the dog are to give the owners more confidence! The dog donít need it all they need is clean water , a good diet and instead of being in a hunt every night they need to stay at home and be conditioned. It would take a mentally tuff dog to be in these hunts every night and not feel beat up after a while. I think thatís for most part why they are giving the dog a little help to make it through the night.

99 out of 100 of these so called thyroid dogs aren't actually thyroid dogs.

Hypo and Hyperthyroidism have physical symptoms that none of these dogs are showing, but They will go through a rough stretch and the handler has to have an excuse for it, so they start shoving soloxine down their throats till they die.

Most of the time the dog just needs a break, or a different handler

It works we all always got dogs that tree coons. When we breed we keep in mind would you want your friend to give you a pup they knew there was a chance their might be a health issue with I sure wouldnít. I hope mine only has about 4 then the day they are weaned they are gone lol.


But we all know the unsaid rule that pup donít make it you cull it.
