Posted 05:52 PM. We started Spencer on Soloxine 5 years ago. Eight months later we went to a new vet, one who had the right equipment to detect Spencer's hookworm. He carried a generic, so we switched to that.From home and they said they carried Soloxine. Went down there even though the weather looked stormy. The bottle said Soloxine and finally I got what I wanted, so I thought.
I asked why the bottle said Soloxine and she claims that's what the software for Vets is programmed to say. The generic is cheaper. She said she hasn't had any problems in the 17 years of using it. (hope that makes sense and since Soloxine is slightly more expensive, he wanted to start her on Thyroxine, an dwe could switch later if I wanted to. I've done a lot of reading online (on these messageboards, on the NGAP website, and just various other greyhound sources on the net) and everything I've read basically.
Leyes: Back to top #14 CaliforniaGreys CaliforniaGreys Location: Palm Springs, Ca-to The North Pole Posted 02:01 PM Talk to your vet, if you trust him/her than I would go with their recommendation.Also, just like with people, some dogs do better on one or the other. If you trustyour vet I would say start with what he has and what he suggests and then retest after 6 weeks.
Mind if we pay your vet bills? Pet insurance covers everything from broken bones to cancer treatment. There's even a wellness option that helps pay for your pet's routine care exams, flea/tick/heartworm preventatives, and more!I picked up the prescription and on the way home I looked at my statement and then the bottle. I didn't get Soloxine, but Synthroid which is also another medication for the thryoid (which I also take).
Notify your veterinarian of any other medications or supplements your pet is taking, and also if your pet has had any reactions to previous medications. What should I do if I miss a dose?Clinically he was a whole new dog, and his symptoms disappeared. I think it depends on the dog and you are right, you shouldn't be switching brands once you've started for consistency's sake.
Periodic testing is also necessary while the pet is taking Soloxine. It generally takes several weeks of therapy to see an effect. In almost all cases, the pet will need to be on a thyroid supplement such as Soloxine for life.What should I avoid when giving my pet Soloxine? Consult with your veterinarian before using this medication with any other medications, including vitamins and supplements, epinephrine, norepinephrine, insulin, estrogens, warfarin, or digoxin, since interactions may occur.
Beth and Henry and Leo. Bridge kids Gretta and Samantha (rabbits and Little Arnold, Jakie, Arnold, Charlie, Sophie, and Rosie (guinea pigs). Godspeed Patrick and Murphy you were loved more than you can know.I went back and said this isn't Soloxine which I ordered. They said it was the same ingredient. I didn't want to switch brands and got a credit. I then called another Vet and asked if they have Soloxine.
If you restest on Thyroxine and get improved T4 results, then Thyroxine is working and just fine. In contrast when Sonie started thyroid meds we went with Soloxine because I could then easily get it, and we are having trouble getting her T4 to even 1.0 However, she may have another problem - we are.I then figured out Butler is manufacturing it under a private label and selling it to Vets as it's cheaper than the brand name Soloxine. These Vets are calling this pill Soloxine, which is a registered brand name manufactured by Virbac.
These pills said T4 on one side and the other side said.3mg with a score down the middle. I finally got the truth and she said this is the generic but it's the same ingredient. Missing darling. Sam (.8.2013 Jacey-Kasey (.22.2011 and Oreo Back to top #4 CaliforniaGreys CaliforniaGreys Location: Palm Springs, Ca-to The North Pole Posted 06:18 PM When it comes to thyroid meds, I won't use a generic.
As long as they're not changing generics on him, even if soloxine is better I can't see a few weeks would matter, it's hardly a mir.That was the main problem I had with it, the vet's office kept changing them (and lots of pharmacies do to and it made Patrick really sick every time. So I'm not sure the soloxine is or isn't better for him than any one generic, but the switching was horrible.
When they filled the prescription, I opened the bottle and it wasn't the same pill I have been giving all these years. I thought he was pulling a fast one and didn't take the 49 pills. No known food interactions. Where is more information available? Ask your veterinarian, consult with one of our pharmacists at, or see the. Patient Information Sheet on this medication).
Dude was on soloxine and didn't have any trouble with it (other than the fact he didn't really need it and was getting too much - whole other story!). He came to us on it and we continued it until we stopped giving him the Rx all together.Some species of red-feathered birds may start growing yellow feathers. If your pet experiences an allergic reaction to the medication, signs may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, or coma.
If you think you are giving your fur kid Soloxine for hypothyroidism, check your pills. In 2003, my guy was diagnosed with a low thyroid and put on Soloxine. I am no longer using the Vet I have been renewing the prescription with and went to another Vet. If you have good absorption and levels on the thyroxine then stick with it. If you don't get good results over a period of time, then I would switch to the soloxine and see if things get better.

(More information on everything leading up to this can be found in a thread called "Anxiety between 2 5am in the "Training and Behavior" section).In April he was diagnosed with a thyroidal carcinoma and said 1/2 of his thyroid removed. She didn't think he got the cancer because of the pill. I had asked Virbac what the difference was between their pill and the others.
The current plan is: 0.4mg of Thyroxine, taken 2x day, and she will be re-tested in 4 weeks. Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

With chronic overdosing (taking a slightly higher dose over a long period of time expect to see signs of hyperthyroidism such as an increase in drinking, urinating, eating, activity; seeking cool areas; increased heart rate; panting; restlessness; and behavior changes.
