You can get them in a chewable form too. Kind of pricey, but worth it if it's the only way to get it in them. Glad to hear she's doing better.



Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

It has been more than 2 weeks since Sadie started the medication so she returned to the vet for a re-check, B/P check and blood test to make sure the thyroid levels have improved. I won't know the results until Monday. I am hoping the levels have stabilized so I don't have to increase the medication to twice a day. Sadie is not all that wild about being given pills.
Her weight has dropped more so the vet is thinking we may end up increasing the meds... Her blood pressure was elevated, as well, which may be due to they hyperthyroidism.
We'll see, hoping for the best on Monday for my sweet old Sadie cat.

The good news is that the medication levels look good and I can continue the Felimazole as a once a day treatment...YEAH!
However the blood work showed that Sadie has an infection so we are starting her on an antibiotic. It is a liquid and is cherry flavored so I am sure she is totally loving it....(not so much!)
I am really glad the thyroid levels are looking good so we are on the right track there. My old lady is hanging in there....
