A cure for hyperthyroidism.

If your cat is experiencing symptoms including changes in behavior, changes in eating habits, weight loss, fever, rapid heartbeat, changes in litter box habits, shedding and diarrhea, they may have a condition called hyperthyroidism.

Similar to humans, cats have a thyroid gland that regulates their metabolism. If the gland develops a tumor (almost all are non-cancerous), hyperthyroidism can occur. Untreated, this condition can be fatal.

Our BluePearl veterinary specialists can diagnose this condition and treat your cat with hyperthyroidism. While the treatment does require that your cat stay in the hospital in a special ward for several days, we pamper them with music, food and loving attention.
