Could something in our house have caused my husband and dog to develop hypothyroidism?

Posted by Beachgal

Both my husband and dog have recently (and suddenly) been diagnosed, via blood tests, with hypothyroidism. Could there be any possibility that this is due to something in our house or environment? 

 My husband has had his thyroid tested every year during his physical and never showed signs of a problem, yet this year his score is exceptionally high. Likewise, our dog has never shown signs of thyroid problems, but a recent urinalysis led our vet to order blood tests which indicate hypothyroidism. All of this has happened in the last month.
