Hi, Anthony. Don't fret. A thyroid condition seems to be the most common among especially full-bloods. What kind of a dog do you have? The tests, I don't remember what they cost, but they are minimal in cost compared to other problems. And the meds I think are pretty minimal. It's a maintenance drug which they seem to take it more easy on us. Your vet can answer all those questions for you, as I do not know where you live. I'm sure it varies. Just know a thyroid disorder is nothing to be alarmed about and is very easily regulated with soloximine. So many of our overbred babies suffer from it... why, I don't know...

p.s. My Eli was a golden retriever who had a thyroid issue...
