Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism in cats

This is our cat "Skipper".  He will be 13 years old in a couple of weeks.

He just had his annual check-up and is doing great.  However, he was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism.  It is better for a cat to be diagnosed with this problem versus Hypothyroidism (which packs on the pounds).

We will have to give him two pills a day (which will be a lot of fun), for the rest of his life and also he has to go on a Renal Diet to help his kidney function as well.  This diet consists of low protein and high fat.
