Hyperactive thyroid question

My 12 year old cat was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. He is taking 1/2 mg tapazole once a day. He was retested 2 weeks ago, all of his blood-work came back within normal range. Although he is drinking less water than before, he is still drinking more than the other two cats. My vet said not to worry since the blood-work was normal, but I have a tendency to be overprotective. I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

He will and will probably lose weight too. I had a kitty who lived quite some time on tapazol about 4-5 yrs if I remember right. She was up to 1 pill twice a day. But shortly before her 19th birthday the time had come. Sounds like your vet has good advice just keep on top of the testing and you should be okay.

You should try Resthryo for your cat's hypothyroidism. My neighbor would give her cat a dose of that each day and he was so much better! It contains seven different herbal extracts that are supposed to balance a cat's thryoid functions as well as improving digestion.
