Vets North - Radioactive Iodine Treatment

We provide radioactive iodine treatment for cats suffering from hyperthyroidism. This generally requires only a single treatment (we will repeat the procedure at no charge if your cat should relapse within a year of treatment).

The treatment is safe and painless. It involves your cat being given a single injection of radioactive iodine. Your cat is required to stay in our radiation facility for a week post injection. After discharge from us, no further treatment is needed. We recommend a follow up blood test after 2-3 months to confirm that the treatment has worked.

If your cat has hyperthyroidism, give us a call to discuss the procedure more comprehensively.  We take patients from all over New Zealand.
