Recommended Feline Hyperthyroidism
Radioiodine Treatment Centers

In the 30 years since hyperthyroidism was first diagnosed in cats, radioiodine has become the gold standard of care for the disease. During that time a growing number of facilities have been developed to offer radioiodine therapy for cats with hyperthyroidism.

Despite the suggestions of some, there is much more to the optimal therapy for feline hyperthyroidism than just giving a cat an injection of radioactive iodine and isolating it in a cage for several days. We feel strongly that thyroid scintigraphy plays an important role in the process of treating hyperthyroid cats with radioiodine. As a result we do not recommend facilities that do not perform thyroid scintigraphy.
