    Although our dogs do not have this condition, it's good to know about it and that it can be treated.  I enjoy your blog; it is always interesting and informative. Thanks!

    Since research of people and animals many times go together, I have read that in people Fluoride,Chlorine, and Bromine can fit into the same receptor site Iodine should fit in, thus causing thyroid problems.  Do you think that providing filtered water eliminating chlorine and reducing fluoride would help the reduce this problem?  I realize unless you cook for your pet, it would be impossible to remove in commercially prepared food.
