The vet's office called Mommy today and said my bloodwork came back with my thyroid levels still too high to go to Radiocat for treatment.
They said that hyperthyroidism sometimes causes kidney function tests to be good when they might really be bad if the thyroid problem did not exist. So they need to test my kidney function while my thyroid levels are normal, but the pills are not making my thyroid levels low enough.
Now Mommy has to increase my medicine, and I don't have the world's best record of tolerating the medicine. Mommy was given the option of having me get the Radiocat treatment now, but she wants to make sure my kidneys are working right first. It seems very important to her so I guess my kidneys are special. Sigh! I guess it's going to be long time before I can find out what this Radiocat is all about!
