The Hyperthyroid Cat
Originally recognised approximately 40 years ago, hyperthyroidism is the most common feline endocrinopathy. How has our understanding of this common disease of cats and it’s management changed since then? This webinar will revisit the diagnostic approach, management options, complications and currently recommended monitoring for these patients. Which medical treatment option is best and why? How often does iatrogenic hypothyroidism occur and how can we diagnose and treat this in cats? What are the renal implications of thyroid disease in cats and how can we best assess and monitor this in these patients? Update and refresh your knowledge of this common feline disease.
