Augustus was just (an hour ago) diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, and will be starting the gel when we return from Thanksgiving travels. His presenting symptoms were inappropriate peeing (on our bed, three times in the past week), in part because he is bring bullied by two of our other cats (we have 10). He's currently isolated in our guest bathroom, and we're hoping this behavior stops when he begins medication...has anoyone else had this issue?

Just wanted to post that my geriatric cat with no specific symptoms was diagnosed was hyperthyroid and placed on felimazole. Cat became VERY ill so dosage was reduced. Continued to deteriorate and finally the decision was made to take him off the medication and let nature take its course (the thought being that quality of line is more important than quantity). It took two weeks but he now is his old self, eating well, playing, seeking out companionship with his people. It is helpful to be reminded that this too is an option.
