- 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.
