Adding a small amount of kelp to the diet can be good for the thyroid because of the iodine it contains, but if your dog has thyroid disease, he will need to be treated with a prescription thyroid replacement, adding kelp is not going to cure a thyroid problem unless it was caused by an iodine deficiency, which is unlikely. Selenium deficiency may also contribute to hypothyroidism, so it may be worthwhile to try supplementing with small amounts (no more than about 75 mcg per day for a large dog, proportionately less for smaller dogs). However, supplementing with kelp, and feeding a raw diet, may reduce the amount of thyroid supplementation needed. If you do make such a change to your dog's diet, be sure to monitor his thyroid to see if the dosage needs to be adjusted. Also, be aware that too much iodine (from oversupplementing kelp) can actually lead to hypothyroidism.
