This happened to me about 15 years ago with my lab(who has since passed). It bothered me for a long time, along with other minor diagnostic issues, enough to leave the vet practice. When you posted your thread, I thought maybe there is something that I never considered in the misdiagnosis in Casey years ago. I just came across this site and thought it might be helpful. http://www.chessieinfo.net/thyroid-article-2.htm

In this article, they mention something called "sick euthyroid" where the standard T4 panel will produce results implying hypothyroid, when in fact they may have a different underlying condition. (probably the last thing you want to hear right now). But, for what it's worth, the article does suggest that thyroid tests can be misleading in some dogs under some conditions.
