Dr. Muldoon & the wonderful Care Center Staff –

Thank you so much for all of the fabulous care that our sweet Maximus received during his recent troubles. We are pleased to say that he is back to his normal crazy self J.

We appreciate your expertise and caring in a very scary time. We are certain that without all of you, we would not have our Maximus with us today! Please know that we will be forever grateful!

Thanks so much,
The Sellars Family

Radioiodine (I-131)

Erick Mears, DVM, DACVIM

Hyperthyroidism is a common disease in middle-aged and older cats. It is a condition caused by a benign tumor of the thyroid gland that begins to produce too much thyroid hormone. The net result of this is usually weight loss in the face of increased appetite, vomiting, and often times heart disease.
Treatment for hyperthyroidism is with either:

  • Medication (which blocks synthesis of thyroid hormone). Medication must be given for the life of the cat.
  • Surgery (to remove the tumor)
  • Radioactive iodine, or I-131.

I-131 has many advantages:

  • 94% curative
  • Least expensive long-term treatment
  • No daily pilling
  • No surgical risk

Care Center offers I-131 treatment in association with I-Cat. To learn more about I-Cat, click here. You can schedule a treatment for I-131 at the Care Center by calling Dr. Erick Mears and I-Cat at: 1-866-497-3784.
