Feline Hyperthyroidism

Radioactive Iodine Therapy is now considered the treatment of choice for feline hyperthyroidism.

Hyperthyroidism is a condition where the thyroid glands produce an excess of a hormone that controls your cat's metabolic rate, accelerating wear and tear on his or her internal organs. In order to stop this excess hormone production, Feline Radioactive Iodine (I-131) treatment is given. Your pet will receive an injection of Iodine 131 and stay in the hospital for a few days while their bodies excrete the iodine. Over 90% of patients only need one treatment.

Please call us for more information about Feline Radioactive Thyroid (I-131) Treatment.
