Video of Hyperthyroid Cat Playing After Treatment

Gizmo is a Turkish Angora with hyperthyroidism whose owners brought him to Dr. Peterson's Hypurrcat treatment center. Dr. Peterson pioneered the radioiodine treatment for cats with hyperthyroidism. This video was taken after Gizmo was treated with radioiodine during his "photo shoot."

Gizmo came to us shaved (Turkish Angoras typically have long hair) due to the matting in his fur- failure to groom is a common symptom of long-haired cats with hyperthyroidism. As you can see from the video, cats treated at Hypurrcat enjoy all the comforts of home, and then some! We care for all animals as if they were our own.
