- Managing cats with hyperthyroidism
Not Recommended For:
- Growing kittens
- Pregnant or lactating queens
IMPORTANT - These are suggested guidelines; always use your clinical judgment to make recommendations for individual patients :
o Perform baseline assessment prior to beginning nutritional maintenance. If you choose to change your patient to nutritional maintenance, specialists recommend discontinuing the drug prior to beginning y/d Feline
o Most cats transition to the food over 7 days however, some may need longer (several weeks). Cats with concurrent diseases should be monitored very closely.
o Because iodine intake from other food sources — treats, another pet’s food, etc. — can compromise the effectiveness of restricted-iodine nutrition, it’s critical that your patient is fed EXCLUSIVELY with Prescription Diet™ y/d™ Feline.
o Some cats may experience a transient increase in TT4 (rarely associated with recurrence of clinical signs), which usually resolves once the cat has been eating y/d Feline as the sole source of nutrition for 4-8 weeks. If values are still high at 12 weeks, check owner’s compliance. For cats with concurrent disease start re-check at 2 and 4 weeks after transition to food is complete.
o Long-term re-check should be done every 6 months. Cats with concurrent disease should be re-checked more regularly.

Supplementation beyond the analogous canned or dry formula is unnecessary and may decrease the effectiveness of the food.
The following amounts are a starting point only and should be adjusted as needed to maintain proper weight. When feeding for the first time, mix increasing amounts of the pet's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
