One cat's serum thyroxine (T4) level remained elevated after therapy. Two cats regressed to hyperthyroidism 13 and 19 months after 131I. One cat died...

Serum fructosamine concentrations were measured in 35 healthy cats and in 30 hyperthyroid cats before and 30 days after curative radio-iodine (131I) treatment. Hyperthyroid cats were divided into those with 30 day post-treatment total thyroxine (T4) concentrations within (EuT4) or below (HypoT4)...

Abstract

Nine cats, 11- to 14-years-old, were given a fixed dose of radioiodine by s.c. injection between the shoulder-blades. A single injection of 111 or 148 MBq was sufficient to treat 8 of 9 cats and was well tolerated. It is concluded that s.c. radioiodine treatment is both efficacious and easily...
