Owning a cat is one of the greatest joys in life. However, the adage that “old age doesn’t come alone” is as true for cats as for people and hyperthyroidism can affect as many as 30% of older cats (depending on exact age and geographic location). Everyone at the Hyperthyroid Cat Centre knows the benefit of feline friends personally and can relate to the concerns you may have if your own cat is diagnosed as hyperthyroid. No-one wants to think of their cat having to leave home which is why we have worked hard to allow cats home from as early as 4 days after radio-iodine treatment (the shortest minimum hospitalisation period in the UK).
We do hope the various pages, downloads and other resources will answer all your questions and leave you feeling informed. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any unanswered questions you may have.
All the pictures are of real patients who we have had the pleasure of curing of feline hyperthyroidism. We are very grateful to their owners for sharing the pictures, often with testimonials and cat stories about their and their cat’s experience of both hyperthyroidism and radio-iodine treatment. If you would like to explore another’s experience further please contact us and ask to speak with someone in the Hyperthyroid Cat Centre Community, an informal group of cat owners who have volunteered to discuss how the process worked for them and their cat with prospective clients.
