Canine hypothyroidism is usually primary, i.e., due to atrophy of the
thyroid gland. In the majority of cases the atrophy is associated with
lymphocytic thyroiditis and in the remainder it is non-inflammatory and
as of yet unknown etiology. Less than 10 percent of cases of
hypothyroidism are secondary, i.e., due to deficiency of thyroid
stimulating hormone (TSH). TSH deficiency may occur as a component of
congenital hypopituitarism or as an acquired disorder in adult dogs, in
which case it is invariably due to the growth of a pituitary tumor.
