Dogs with hypothyroidism and dogs who received omega-3 fatty acid supplements might be at less risk for developing a specific type of lymphoma called T-zone lymphoma (TZL). In a study published in March in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine, Colorado State University researchers looked at the health history of 350 older Golden Retrievers. Of all the breeds, Golden Retrievers have the highest incidence of TZL (about one-third of all cases). Dogs who ever received omega-3 fatty acid supplements in their lifetime, as well as those who were diagnosed with hypothyroidism, were associated with decreased odds of developing TZL.
