Richard, giving a dog thyroid medication that has a bad thyroid is not cheating it just brings the dog to normal levels. They get no extra benefit or boost from it. \
On the other hand, giving a dog thyroid medication that is not hypothyroid is cheating. It's cheating in the Olympics and any other sport that requires energy. It gives them false energy and increases their stamina at the expense of their health but it gives them a big advantage in competition. That's why it's illegal in human competition. Vitamins are not in the same class as thyroid medication. Extra vitamins are urinated out on the ground and for the most part have no side effects if given orally and they will only be at the normal level because their body adjusts vitamins they eat daily with renal function. Thyroid medication is more in line with amphetamine/cocaine and other things like that. That's why it's tested for in human competition and even if they have a medical reason if it tests above the normal limit they can't compete.
The same argument happens at the Olympic level that happens here. Any last I checked it is not a banned substance. There is some interesting info put out by an endocrinologist for many top Olympians. You can find his name in this article and do some research. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.ib...1196751%3famp=1
