Hyperthyroidism/Radioiodine Therapy


Hyperthyroidism is a common medical condition affecting cats generally over six years of age. The condition results in most cases from a benign tumor of the thyroid gland, which results in excess thyroid hormone secretion. Hyperthyroidism is a progressive but highly treatable illness. For more information about Hyperthyroidism and Radioiodine Treatment go to Hyperthyroidism in our online library.
