|I have no experience with hyperthyroidism or methimazole, but alot of
medicines and doseages, go by the weight of the cat, and the severity of
the disease. What works for one cat, may not work for another.
I am glad you like your vet and trust her, that is very important, when you
have a special needs cat. But, you should never ever be afraid to ask
questions about the disease, the prognosis, the medication, etc.
You are not questioning her, you are asking questions, to learn and
understand about the disease and treatments. This is actually very
When my show kitten was diagnosed with HCM, you would not believe the
number of questions I asked of vets, breeders, anybody that would help me,
most were willing to, and it gave me a greater understanding of the disease
and the treatments and care, and I did a ton of research on my own. And
now I am pretty much an expert, lol, and can help others.
If you don't already, I highly recommend you suscribe to Cat Fancy. It has
alot of good health articles in there and alot of contact info.
Best of luck with your kitty.
