This morning in my not-quite-awake haze, I took my dog's dose of Eltroxin (100mcg) instead of my morning vitamins. Eltroxin is synthetic thyroid hormone, prescribed for people (and dogs) whose thyroid gland isn't working. According to my own family doctor, my thyroid gland is working just fine, and according to "Shuki's" tests, hers shut down about five years ago. Ever since she was diagnosed and dosed, her health has been superb. So far, I have noticed absolutely no effects from my mistake, but if my posts begin to sound like those of a hyperactive Canaani mixed-breed, all I can say is "Woof, Woof" (Hebrew translation: "Ow, Ow").
