Radioactive Iodine I-131 Therapy for Feline Hyperthyroidism

Thyro-Cat treatment offers radioactive iodine I-131 therapy for cats diagnosed with feline hyperthyroidism. This cost-effective treatment for feline hyperthyroidism using radioactive iodine (I-131) is the preferred method of therapy for hyperthyroid cats. Radioactive iodine I-131 injection is also the preferred treatment for hyperthyroidism in humans. Radioactive iodine I-131 therapy is as easy as one injection just under the skin, much like a routine feline vaccine. Radioactive iodine I-131 is safe and effective for treating feline hyperthyroidism.

Thyro-Cat Treatment in Holbrook/Long Island, NY

The Holbrook/Long Island Thyro-Cat Treatment Center is spacious, comfortable, climate-controlled, and complete with videos for your cat to enjoy. Most cats are housed with us for 3-5 days. Once your cat is admitted for feline hyperthyroidism therapy using radioactive iodine (I-131), chest and abdominal ultrasounds are performed. Providing these tests are within normal ranges, your cat then receives one injection of radioiodine (I-131). After the injection, your cat will be closely monitored for health and radioiodine (I-131) levels during his or her stay at Thyro-Cat Feline Hyperthyroidism Treatment Center located at Sachem Animal Hospital in Holbrook, NY.

A short stay, from 3 to 5 days, at this facility is required by law until the level of radiation reduces to an acceptable level.
