My female cat Marmalade is almost 11 years old and she has a condition called
Feline Hyperthyroidism which made/makes her over-eat and lose weight also
drank/drinks too much.

But since last October 2009 when I found about her thyroids being affected
she's been taking (eating) Vidalta 10mg x 1 daily (sort of).

She's also got possible kidney damage due to the meds but what
I don't understand is her condition or enough about Feline Hyperthyroidsim although
I ask loads of questions to the vet and I get rebuffed.

 :(

Thanks

Rosalind

Thanks Discover Dave for your links but they are mainly to do with
American Veterinary clinics, I live in London, UK.

This is one of the links I found, not as good as yours.
The vet is a nuisance not answering my many questions and I pay enough
for Marmalade's treatment. It frustrates me.
