Soloxine (levothyroxine) Tablets for Hypothyroidism in dogs

Dogs with low thyroid levels can benefit from Soloxine (levothyroxine), a prescription medication which helps produce the thyroid hormone and regulate normal body function.  

  • Treats hypothyroidism in dogs
  • Helps improve health and well-being
  • Nine different dosages available
  • Small pills are easy to administer

When your dog doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone, she can develop hypothyroidism. The condition commonly causes hair loss, skin irritation, weight gain, and lethargy among other things. If your dog has low thyroid levels, talk to your veterinarian about prescription Soloxine (levothyroxine), a replacement for the hormone that is naturally produced by the thyroid gland.  This medication regulates the body and metabolism so your dog feels better. Soloxine is FDA-approved for use in dogs but is sometimes prescribed for cats. The small pill size makes dosing easy. What do other pet parents have to say about Soloxine tablets?

  • Q:

    When do you expect to have the 0.8mg pill in stock?
    Asked on 5/4/2015 by kewhite from Michigan, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      The manufacturer is not producing products right now so we are unsure of when that will be available again. We do have a couple other products that are substitutable though in the mean time. Thryrovet and Thryrokare are both levothyroxine tablets, the same as Soloxine.

  • Q:

    Can I cut thyroid pill in half?  Schipperke had low thyroid. Put on 0.3 mg   Now it's a little high. Vet said try 0.2 mg. can I cut 0.3 mg pill in half and try it before purchasing the 0.2?  Pill is small blue and scored.  
    Asked on 2/26/2015 by Annie2 from Indiana, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      The Soloxine tablet is manufactured in a manner that does allow the tablet to be split. When splitting tablets, it is recommended to use a pill splitting device to ensure that the tablet is split cleanly and evenly to ensure the appropriate dose is administered. It is recommended to contact your veterinarian to determine if he or she feels splitting tablets to obtain the appropriate dosage for your dog is acceptable.

    Asked on 2/25/2015 by Darlena

    1 answer

    • A:

      Darlena,

      Soloxine, brand name for levothyroxine, is a veterinary prescription medication used in the treatment of hypothyroidism in dogs and other animals. Soloxine, is generally dosed every 12 hours (ie. twice daily) for canines and occasionally once daily. The decision on how often to administer this medication and how much medication your dog requires will be determined by your veterinarian. It is recommended to contact your veterinarian with all Soloxine dosing questions prior to making any changes.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    When will Soloxine 0.2mg be available? Do you know where else I can get this?
    Asked on 6/9/2014 by panolan2 from St. James, NY, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Right now, many different strengths of levothyroxine are becoming back-ordered from the manufacturers. We do still have the 0.2mg in two other brands, ThyroVet and ThyroKare, which are also levothyroxine like the Soloxine. You may want to talk to your pet's veterinarian about switching brands if you're unable to find the Soloxine.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Can we replace Soloxine with Levothyroxine for our 11 yr. old mini poodle?
    Asked on 3/29/2014 by PoodlePal from South Florida

    1 answer

    • A:

      Soloxine is a brand name for levothyroxine sodium (which is the drug name). There are several brands of levothyroxine and your poodle's veterinarian will help you decide which brand is right for your pet.

  • Q:

    My vet sells these to us for our dog. Do I need to get a prescription from them and show it to you so I can buy these from you?
    Asked on 10/3/2013 by Albert

    1 answer

    • A:

      Albert,

      Yes, Soloxine is a prescription medication.  We can obtain approval from your dog's veterinarian in a couple of different ways - once an order is placed, we can fax your veterinarian for approval and they can fax back with the doctor's signature and the directions for use (by far the most common and the fastest method), or once we fax the clinic can call and verbally approve a prescription (some clinics prefer this method).  We can also accept prescriptions written by the veterinarian that you can then mail to us, with your current order number written on the outside of the envelope.

      Thank you,

Comments about Virbac Soloxine (Levothyroxine):

My vet has perceived this for my youngest who is a challenge at ever turn. He has lost weight and this has given him more energy, which I am debating as to whether this is a hood or bad thing. I know this will give us many more happy years together. I love my Hunter boy.

Great Service and Price

Comments about Virbac Soloxine (Levothyroxine):

For all practical purposes Soloxine is Soloxine. What was great about this order was the pricing was 1/2 the price my Vet wanted to charge me. Because Angel will be on this medication for her lifetime, pricing is a huge deal. The order process was easy as well. I put in the order, my vet was contacted and the product shipped. No more need to fit in a stop at the vet with my chaotic schedule. Ordering Soloxine from VetRxDirect was a really smart move. All pro's, no con's.

If your dog is hypothyroid you probably are going to buy this drug. I buy many generics but something in me prefers the brand name (original). So here it is at a very good price

Comments about Virbac Soloxine (Levothyroxine):

Both our Golden Retrievers require Soloxine for their hypothyroidism. It was costing me double from the vet directly. VetDirect is great to work with; they contact our vet when we require a refill. One comment - I wish their website was a little easier to use when ordering for multiple pets, but so far their service is great.
