A specialist centre says it has achieved a UK first in the treatment of hyperthyroid cats.
The centre treated Bodger, a 13-year-old domestic shorthair cat, and he was able to return home euthyroid only five days after radioiodine treatment (RIT).
The centre says Bodger was the first cat in the UK to do so.
Its co-founder Andrew Bodey said “We’re delighted to be able to offer the same short hospitalisation period available in the US and in mainland Europe – addressing the biggest barrier to the routine use of RIT.”
The centre will be at stand 11 at the Vets Now ECC Congress in Harrogate on November 13 and 14 and at stand N29 at the London Vet Show on November 20 and 21. Visitors to the stands will be able to enter a prize draw to win a tablet.
