Thyroid Medications Seem to Cause My Australian Shepherd to Be Itchy


My 4-year-old Australian Shepherd was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism.

She had dry skinbut never appeared itchy or uncomfortable, but 4 days after starting Soloxine she is miserable, nothing helps.

The vet says it’s allergiesand prescribed Apoquel but after researching I didn’t give it to her.

Anyone else have itching develop immediately after meds were started? She has never had an allergy or even scratched before this.
