Pre-Treatment Diagnostic Testing

Pre-Treatment Diagnostics

These diagnostic tests are required before your cat can be admitted for radioactive iodine therapy.  We recommend that these tests be completed at your regular veterinarian’s office one to two weeks before your radioactive iodine consultation.  If these tests have not been completed, they can be completed at Portland Veterinary Specialists at the time of your radioactive iodine therapy consultation.
