I'm 16 and I don't have many back teeth left so I won't eat bigger kibble.
Mom feeds me wet canned food 2 times a day (sometimes 3). Usually I eat Fancy Feast or Halo.
But she leaves me a bowl of hard kibble out all the time so I can graze.
I never been a bottom of the bowl kind of girl. I eat until full and leave.
Anyone know of a good small size kibble that will not require much chewing?

I have been on 2.5 (5mg a day) for almost a month.
My numbers have gone down. Still waiting for one more test to come in on Monday.
I used to weigh about 7 pounds 3 OZ.
When I went in and was diagnosed I was down to 5 LB & 11 OZ.
I have gained back 1/2 a pound YAY!
The first thyroid test went from 24 down to 3.3 The vet said 4 is normal but a cat on medication should show a lower number on the test than the normal.
My other test was 397 in the beginning and is now down to 105. The vet said 100 is high normal.

Mom is really scared because the vet is talking about maybe having to increase the medication. The 5mg a day scares her because that seems high and if the Dr. increases it Mom is worried my kidneys will crash or something.

Advice? Mom is really upset, confused and sad.

The vet ran a Geriatric Blood Test and she said it was 100% Hyperthyroidism.

Mom is worried about the meds and the amount as someone else said they did fine on half this dose.

Mom said my vet says I have hyperthyroidism.
I am 14 years old.
I was losing weight and had no other symptoms (except that I was hungry ALL the time). Mom was worried about the weight loss so she took me in.
I went from 7.3 pds to 5.1
The vet gave me T-Tapazole (2.5 @ 2 times a day). I think the generic version is Methimazole.

Mom's really worried.

Anyone else here have Hyperthyroidism?frown
How long have you had it and how are you doing?
Thanks
