Feline Hyperthyroid Clinic Launched

After months of preparation and hard work, we are delighted to announce that from September, Anderson Moores will become one of only a handful of veterinary centres in the south of England to provide a state-of-the-art feline radioactive iodine treatment clinic. The clinic will offer a readily accessible, non-invasive and low risk treatment option for feline hyperthyroidism.

Feline hyperthyroidism is a common endocrine disease of geriatric cats, and radioactive iodine (I-131) is the “gold standard treatment” for this disease, enabling our dedicated team here at Anderson Moores to continue with our aim of delivering the highest standard of care possible. The treatment attracts none of the risks associated with a surgical thyroidectomy and has a cure rate of approximately 95%.

The clinic, which has received full approval from the Environment Agency, will be run by a team of European, American and RCVS recognised Specialists in Internal Medicine with the assistance of a dedicated group of feline veterinary nurses.

To coincide with the launch we will also be offering dedicated CPD talks tailored to referring vets and nurses, on the topic of feline hyperthyroidism and to raise awareness of the disease. The talks will discuss treatment challenges and what cases would or would not be suitable for referral. Please stay tuned for more information.
