Radiation Therapy I-131

Sydney Hyperthyroid Cat Hospital
Radioactive Iodine (I-131) therapy is the gold standard treatment for hyperthyroidism in cats. We have on-site, state of the art equipment available at our Sydney Hyperthyroid Cat Hospital, located at our Killara practice.

The Village Vet is one of only a few practises in Sydney that has these facilities on-site and fully qualified staff to administer this specialised treatment.

Possible symptoms might include:

  • Increased vocalisation.
  • Fast heart and breathing rates.
  • Increased appetite and weight loss.
  • Vomiting and diarrhoea.
  • Increase in thirst.

What is Hyperthyroidism?
Feline hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland becomes enlarged and produces excess thyroid hormone. It is a very common disease in older cats.

Left untreated it becomes a life threatening illness. Untreated cats can develop heart disease and problems with blood pressure, kidneys, and other organs.

A single treatment will cure 95% of cats. It is a safe treatment with minimal side effects eliminating the need for lifelong tablets.

For more information about this treatment go to our Sydney Hyperthyroid Cat Hospital website.
