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.
