Abstract

Feline hyperthyroidism is a life-threatening disease requiringprompt veterinary treatment. After the diagnosis, it is mandatory to choose the appropriate treatment. There are several options for the treatment of feline hyperthyroidism: radioactive iodine, surgical thyroidectomy, use of antithyroid drugs and dietary therapy using an iodine-restricted food. The choice of therapy is based on the clinical conditions of the cat, treatment costs and the presence or specialised centres for the treatment with radioactive iodine. The goal of the therapy is to restore euthyroidism, avoid hypothyroidism and minimise side effects of the treatment.
