Radioactive Iodine I-131 Therapy for Cats with Feline Hyperthyroidism

Feline hyperthyroidism is a very common endocrine disease that affects older cats (and middle-aged cats), and is easily diagnosed and treated with radioactive iodine therapy at all Thyro-Cat locations. This condition occurs when a tumor in one or both thyroid gland lobes (70% of cats diagnosed have tumors in both lobes), produces excess feline thyroid hormone, and all organs are affected in a negative manner. If left untreated, an overactive feline hyperthyroid condition will likely become fatal. Luckily, feline hyperthyroidism is highly treatable, if diagnosed early, as 98% of cat thyroid tumors are benign (adenoma) and 2% are cancerous (carcinoma).

Our Danbury thyroid treatemnt center offers affordable, effective diagnosis and treatment for cats with hyperthyroidism, and also has other locations in CT and NY for convenience. Thyro-Cat administers radioactive iodine I-131 therapy (which is also used for overactive thyroids in humans) for feline hyperthyroidism in diagnosed cats as easily and quickly as a vaccine, as it is injected just under the skin; and is entirely safe and effective for your cat.


How Feline Thyroid Treatment Works

Overview

The Thyro-Cat Feline Hyperthyroidism Treatment Center at Complete Cat Veterinary Clinic in Danbury makes the process of diagnosis and treatment for your cat as comfortable and soothing as possible by offering a large, comfortable and climate-controlled facility for your cat to relax in during his/her 3-5 day stay at our feline hyperthyroidism treatment center. While the injection takes only a second, by law it is required that cats stay 3-5 days in the facility to ensure the level of radiation has been safely reduced before exiting our supervision and monitoring.

Cat Hyperthyroidism Treatment Process

  1. Cat is admitted to Thyro-Cat for feline hyperthyroidism therapy.
  2. Chest/abdominal ultrasounds are administered prior to injection of radioactive iodine (I-131) therapy.
  3. With normal results, the radioactive iodine (I-131) therapy injection is administered.
  4. Cat is closely monitored for both radioactive levels, as well as overall health status for 3-5 days after injection.
  5. Thyro-Cat of Brookfield/Danbury creates and sends a custom feline hyperthyroidism report of your cat to your cat's veterinarian. This feline hyperthyroid report includes hyperthyroidism status, the treatment process, as well as recommendations for the veterinarian on applicable feline thyroid monitoring and treatment.
