Iodine Therapy for Cats with Hyperthyroidism (Nuclear Medicine)
Hyperthyroidism is the most common disease affecting older cats (seven year and above). There are several treatment options including tablets and surgery, but by far the most effective, safest and most convenient is the use of radioactive iodine (it isn’t as scary as it sounds).
We are one of the only practices in country to offer this service. And Dr.Sally has treated over 480 cases during her time at Double Bay Vet
Our kennels have been specially designed to accommodate the cases and we have succesfully treated hundreds of cats from all over Australia.
If your cat is being medically treated for hyperthyroidism at another clinic, this service is still available to your cat, please ask your veterinarian about this treatment.
