Partial Thyroidectomy

The right and left thyroid glands are located near the trachea. There are several important structures near the thyroid glands, like the jugular veins, carotid arteries, the esophagus, lymph nodes, and important nerves. Thyroid tumors in dogs are not very common and only account for one to four percent of all canine tumors. There may be a breed predisposition for Boxers, Beagles, and Golden Retrievers, although they can be seen in any breed. The average age of dogs diagnosed with thyroid tumors is over nine years old. Dogs with thyroid tumors usually present with a firm mass in their necks. If you notice that your dog has a mass in their neck, your veterinarian will perform an examination of the area.  Surgical removal is the ideal treatment if the mass is not invading major structures.
