Thyroid Panel, Canine: FT4d, T4, T3, TSH, TgA - THYPK9 Sample Details: 2.5 - 3 mL serum or heparinized plasma Cost/Fee: $75.00 Comment: For more information, see Appendix C or Canine Thyroid Testing Lab Section: Endocrinology Description: Canine Thyroid Panel Min Sample Volume: 1 mL Collection Container: plastic or glass tube Coolant: Refrigerate Test Target: Analyte Test Days: M, W Test Turnaround (business days): 2-6 days SpeciesSexTestReference Value Canine T3 not determined Measurement of free-T4 may be useful in differentiating dogs with true hypothyroidism from dogs with reduced thyroid function due to other chronic illness (e.g., hyperadrenocorticism, liver disease, diabetes), drug administration (e.g., glucocorticoids), and malnutrition. The free-T4 test may be a useful additional test in cats that are clinically hyperthyroid, but have normal total T3 and/or total T4 concentrations. Because we feel that the canine TSH test alone may be difficult to interpret, we recommend measuring it only in combination with other thyroid function tests. Taking into consideration the animal's history and results of the physical examination and other laboratory tests, possible interpretations are as follows.
