An oral solution for treating hyperthyroidism in cats has been launched by Norbrook.

Thyronorm Oral Solution for Cats is a liquid alternative to tablets and is licensed for the long-term treatment of feline hyperthyroidism and the stabilisation of hyperthyroidism in cats prior to surgical thyroidectomy.

The flavoured liquid formulation contains 5mg/ml of thiamazole, which is proven to have in vivo bioequivalence to thiamazole-containing tablets.

ThyronormIncreased compliance

It is specifically designed to increase compliance and improve titration ability for precise, accurate management of hyperthyroid cats, while the added honey allows for even greater pet acceptance, thereby helping maintain the pet-owner bond, the company said.

The initial starting dose is 5mg active ingredient per day, ideally split into two doses and made simple with a clearly marked dosing syringe. The syringe is marked in milligrams of active ingredient to ensure accurate dosing depending on the individual pet’s requirement.

Simple solution

Available in 30ml and 100ml bottles, and with an in-use shelf life of six months, Thyronorm provides a simple solution to stabilising hyperthyroid cats prior to surgery or radioiodine therapy – and can provide a solution for owners wanting to continue medication treatment long term.

Thyronorm Oral Solution for Cats is available to order from UK veterinary wholesalers.

How much would a 100 ml bottle of Thyronorm cost as this has been recommended for one of my cats by my vet as he has an over active throidgland.

Thanks

We do not know the price of this product. It’s relatively new in the UK and, as such, does not seem to have reached the pages of the online veterinary pharmacies yet. Please refer to your veterinary practice for details.

You can get a prescription from your vet (they usually charge) and then order the medication online. I used to do this for my dog it worked out a lot cheaper. My cat has just been diagnosed with an over active thyroid so hopefully the online pharmacies will start to stock this liquid soon

It is generally suggested this type of product is not added to food. The cat would have to eat all of the food in one sitting to ensure it receives the full dose in a timely fashion.

My cat recently swapped from vidalta to thyronorm oral solution, and developed severe anaemia. She was old and may have had a low red blood cell count already, however I would just urge a little caution in giving it to your cat, and perhaps ensure you monitor them closely. Unfortuntely her anaemia was so severe she had to be put down.

I have an elderly cat who was on vidalta, which was a nightmare as she hated the tablets and would often manage to spit them out —- if I was lucky enough to get a tablet into her (a serious fight with her wrapped in a towel). Afterwards she would give me evil looks and disappear!. Vet recommended thyronorm 3 months ago and changed to that. Now my cats jumps onto the kitchen table and sits and waits for it to be sprayed into her mouth! If I leave the kitchen and forget to give her the thyronorm she reminds… Read more »
