Thyroid Balance Naturally
Natural Thyroid Support for Horses
What causes thyroid issues in horses?
Support your horse’s thyroid health naturally. Low iodine is the primary cause of an enlarged thyroid and low thyroid function. The thyroid requires iodine to function properly because iodine supports the production of thyroid hormones T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Failure to get enough iodine from the diet can lead to an under-active or alternately, over-active thyroid.
Various symptoms of Equine Thyroid imbalance include:
- Low Energy
- Skin and Hoof issues
- Muscle tenderness and Pain
- Stiff Joints
- Weight Gain/Loss
- Cresty Neck
- Equine Metabolic Syndrome-EMS
- Insulin Resistance-IR
- Equine Cushings Disease
How to Treat Thyroid Problems in Horses
How is low thyroid treated in horses?
Your Vet may prescribe levothyroxine also known as Thyro-L for your horse. It is a prescription drug restricted to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. In some cases, there are complications for the use of synthetic thyroid hormone supplements in horses.
You may want to consider Thyroid Balance Naturally thyroid support for horses as an alternative to Thyro-L, in the form of a natural herbal supplement to help balance the Thyroid without synthetic chemicals that only mimic what the body produces on its own.
Do not discontinue thyroid drugs such as Levothyroxine/ Thyro-L suddenly, especially for horses on high doses, and for those particularly at risk for laminitis. You can go ahead and start your horse on Thyroid Balance Naturally while you taper to 1/2 the amount daily for 2 weeks, and then 1/2 again daily for 2 more weeks before stopping, or as directed by your vet.
