What do you think of this?! Yikes! This could always prove to be from a poor study or something but I came across this and thought.... :startle:

Oh but never mind...Duh, wouldn't we notice the symptoms? They're pretty pronounced.

Why are these articles out there and the studies? Did all canines that ate raw meaty bones get hperthyroidism and all the other horrendous maladies that some of these articles claim? I read too much.

Thinking about it logically, yes, it has to be possible to induce hyperthyoidism in your pet. Our pup is hypothyroid, he gets synthroid but I wish I could get a steady supply of the actual thyroid organ to treat him with. Synthroid isn't exact unfortunately.

 

So, we have to give our dog thyroxine to up his thyroid levels. If you feed excess thyroxine to a dog that has a fully functioning thyroid - what do you think is going to happen?

I don't ever worry about any of that, or bother to read all that kind of stuff. Its very unlikely to have those problems (not to mention you can't believe everything you read on the internet). I would worry more about kibble causing anything than I ever would with raw. It's easy to let your mind run away with you if you read too much!

Since I almost never feed my Vizsla ground meat, I'm not overly concerned that I'm getting too much thyroid/gullet tissue (that is disallowed by regulators in any case).

 

I like being aware of possible issues, but....
