Possible Hyper-T Cat Again after 2 Radiations!
My 11 year old cat had radiation therapy for hyper-T when he was 7, then again two years later when he was 9. Now, two years after that second treatment he is exhibiting the symptoms of hyper-T again: rapid weight loss, nervousness. I am so distraught over this. I have not brought him back to the vet again because I don't know at the moment whether I should change vets to seek another opinion, a new type of treatment (if any) or something besides what obviously is not working. The I-131 was sold to me as a virtual "miracle cure"; and they insisted to me that a second round would, of course, work "this time." So I just don't know whether this vet is competent and I should return. They will no doubt talk me into a third round. I feel so, so sorry for my boy cat because of all he's been through so far. I wonder whether I should just give in to the fact that he is ill and let nature take its course. Can any experts weigh in here? What would you do?
