The most common symptoms of hyperthyroidism are losing weight even though your cat might be hungrier and eating more.
Follow the instructions given by your veterinary surgeon. Felimazole tablets are best given directly to your cat, but the small, sugar-coated tablets can also be hidden whole in the food.
Speak to your veterinary surgeon. DO NOT give a double dose next time. If your cat is due to have a monitoring blood test within a couple of days of missing a tablet, MAKE SURE YOU LET YOUR VETERINARY SURGEON KNOW as it could affect the blood results.
Yes. It is important that your cat revisits your veterinary surgeon for assessment and monitoring tests. These are recommended at 3, 6, 10 and 20 weeks after starting treatment and thereafter every 3 months.
Side-effects most commonly occur within the first 3 months of therapy. They are generally mild and include inappetence, vomiting and lethargy. More serious side-effects are possible so if your cat becomes unwell at any time while on Felimazole therapy, stop treatment and consult your veterinary surgeon as soon as possible.
