Our Story About The Hyperthyroid Cat Centre
Welcome to The Hyperthyroid Cat Centre.
Based in Wetherby, West Yorkshire, we are one of the UK's leading centres for the treatment of feline hyperthyroidism. Cats come to us from across the country to benefit from our friendly professional comprehensive service.
Our large capacity means we usually have short waiting times once your cat is referred, with occasional patients being admitted and treated within 24 hours – although this is unusually quick! We are pleased to be able to allow cats home again from as little as 4 days after treatment, the shortest period available in the UK.
We welcome you to browse our site where you can read more about hyperthyroidism in cats - causes, symptoms, all treatment options, possible causes and suggested prevention strategies. If any of the information is unclear don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any aspect further.
We’ve included a number of testimonials which describe the experience of other cat owners whose cats are now cured of hyperthyroidism. Everyone’s experience is unique but there may be areas of overlap between others experiences and your own starting point. Almost all of the illustrations on our site are of cats we have treated – many thanks to all who have shared their stories and their photos!
