Radioactive Iodine (I-131) Therapy for Feline Hyperthyroidism

Thyro-Cat of Stamford, CT answers a specific medical condition frequently occurring in middle-aged to senior cats (both female and male): feline hyperthyroidism. As our introduction to cat hyperthyroidism section discusses, feline hyperthyroidism occurs when a cat has a tumor on one or both of its thyroid gland's lobes. (Approximately 98% of cat thyroid tumors are benign, and only 2% cancerous). This, in turn, if left untreated, affects all of the cat's internal organs and most often becomes a fatal condition. This said, if diagnosed and treated early with radioactive iodine (I-131) treatment, feline hyperthyroidism can be handled effectively to save your cat's life and promote its long-term pet wellness.

Thyro-Cat feline hyperthyroidism treatment provides effective, affordable hyperthyroidism treatment for your cat in a comfortable environment, and serves not just Stamford, CT; but the surrounding areas as well to include Northeast states: NH, NJ, NY, RI, VT, MA, and PA. A visit to this location provides diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring for feline hyperthyroidism and focuses on providing cats and their owners an affordable, effective treatment solution to a debilitating disease.

How Feline Hyperthyroid Treament Works

The treatment used at all Thyro-Cat cat thyroid treatment centers is radioactive iodine (I-131) therapy, which is the same means used to effectively treat human hyperthyroidism, and has been providing successful results for decades. The feline thyroid treatment is administered as conveniently and easily as a pet vaccine (just under the skin), and if diagnosed/treated early on, works to regulate the cat's thyroid and save its life in a safe and effective manner. As it is radioactive, law stipulates that cats must stay at the hyperthyroidism treatment center for a 3-5 day duration-both to be able to monitor the cat's reaction to the treatment and overall health; as well as, to ensure the radiation level in the cat has reduced to a safe level.

The Thyro-Cat Treatment Process

Our Thyro-Cat facilities ensure that the process of cat diagnosis and treatment is as comfortable and effective as possible for your cat and its wellbeing. This is why all of our Thyro-Cat locations are climate-controlled, spacious, and even offer relaxing videos for your cat to watch while at the feline hyperthyroidism treatment center during your cat's 3-5 day stay.

What to Expect

  1. Cat is admitted to the treatment center.
  2. Chest/abdominal ultrasounds are administered and analyzed.
  3. The radioactive iodine (I-131) therapy injection is administered just under the cat's skin.
  4. Monitoring for 3-5 days after injection for radioactive levels in the cat (it's the law), as well as overall health status.
  5. Thyro-Cat sends a custom feline hyperthyroidism treatment report of your cat to your cat's veterinarian.
