Thyro-Cat Treatment Centers See 97% Success Rate with Innovative Treatment for Feline Hyperthyroidism

Thyro-Cat Feline Hyperthyroidism Treatment Centers reports a 97% success rate in diagnosing and treating hyperthyroidism in cat patients.

Syracuse, NY, November 09, 2013 --( Thyro-Cat, a specialty treatment center with locations in Danbury CT, Stamford CT, Long Island NY, and Syracuse NY, is offering Radioiodine I-131 treatment for feline hyperthyroidism. The treatment has been shown to be successful in 97% of cats with feline hyperthyroidism.

Feline hyperthyroidism is a disorder that occurs when the feline thyroid gland produces an excess of thyroid hormone. Symptoms include weight loss, changes in behavior, excessive appetite or decreased appetite, increased water intake, hyperactivity or lethargy, excessive shedding, poor coat condition, diarrhea or vomiting, increased urination, and cardiac issues. If left untreated, the condition can be fatal.

ThyroCat treats the condition with an injection of Radioactive Iodine. Typically, cats receive one injection, and remain at the treatment center for up to five days. No anesthesia or surgery is required, and normal thyroid function is typically restored within one month.

“Radioactive Iodine therapy for feline hyperthyroidism is very effective, has few side effects, is a one-time treatment in 95% of cats with hyperthyroidism, and does not require administration of pills on anesthesia,” said Dr. Dr. Victor T. Rendano, a leading veterinary physician in the field of feline hyperthyroidism and co-founder of ThyroCat. “The treatment is also cost effective and there are almost no side effects.”

Because of its 97% success rate and very low risk of side effects, Radioiodine I-131 treatment has become the treatment of choice for veterinarians worldwide.
