Radioactive Iodine I-131 Therapy for Feline Hyperthyroidism

Feline hyperthyroidism treatment at our location in Queensbury, NY (as well as our other hyperthyroidism centers,) offers radioactive iodine I-131 therapy for cats diagnosed with feline hyperthyroidism. Radioactive iodine (I-131) therapy is the preferred method of therapy for this condition, as it is effective, safe, and economical. Our feline hyperthyroid therapy consists of simple one-injection treatment just under the cat's skin, much like a routine feline vaccine.


Our Queensbury Thyro-Cat Treatment Center

The Thyro-Cat Treatment Center in Queenbury is a comfortable space for your cat during the administering of the radioactive iodine injection, as well as the monitoring period to follow. The climate-controlled feline treatment facility is large, comfortable, and calming so that your cat can be as at ease at possible during the procedure. Most cats are housed with us for 3-5 days, as is the law, in order to be able to monitor your cat's health after the procedure, as well as to make sure the radioactive material is at a safe level when leaving the hospital. After admission to the Queensbury feline hyperthyroidism treatment facility, chest and abdominal ultrasounds are performed to ensure optimal health of your cat. Next, the cat-once found healthy-receives the injection of radioactive iodine therapy. After the injection, your cat will be closely monitored for health and radioiodine (I-131) levels during his or her stay.
