Feline Radioactive Iodine (I-131) Treatment

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, and injection of Radioactive Iodine (I-131) is given. Your pet will need to stay in the hospital for a few days while their bodies excrete the iodine. This therapy is 96% effective with one treatment.
