Radioactive iodine treatment for hyperthyroid cats

Hyperthyroidism is a common disease of older cats, causing weight loss, excessive drinking and often a ravenous appetite. Many owners confuse these signs with ageing, not realising that Hyperthyroidism is a disease that can be successfully treated.

Treatment can be with a daily tablet or gel on the inside of the ear, or by a permanent treatment know as RadioIodine (I131)

RadioIodine is a specialised treatment that we offer at Dinsdale Pet Doctors. It involves the cat having a one off simple injection and then boarding for 7 days. This is a safe and effective treatment for Hyperthyroidism.

Contact us or your Vet for more details if you think you cat may benefit from RadioIodine treatment
