My cat is 16 yrs old and had been losing weight gradually over the last year. He has just been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. I can decide between 3 different things to do. 1) is a treatment, not a cure. medication is Methimazole. 2) is surgery to remove the thyroid tissue that is producing extra hormone, and 3) radioactive iodine. (2+3 are possible cures.) I know about advantages and disadvantages of each (it would make this too long a post to present them here.)My question: Has anyone had a cat with this problem and what did you opt for? Has anyone had the surgery for their cat? I know someone who went the medication route and now wonders if he should have had the surgery done instead? Thanks for any input!eob
