Hyperthyroidism is one of the most common cat illnesses and is curable in many cases. Caring for a cat with hyperthyroidism has been written as an information source and support tool primarily aimed at owners whose cats have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. It is designed to be the perfect resource for cat owners but is a useful tool for vet students, veterinary nurses and technicians.
The book explains what hyperthyroidism is, how it is diagnosed and what the various treatment options are. The emotional as well as the medical aspects of coping with a cat with hyperthyroidism are discussed with a lot of practical advice on all aspects of care.
Caring for a cat with hyperthyroidism contains a detailed glossary of terms commonly used by vets and several case reports illustrating how successful treatment can be.
‘A brilliantly written book, very well thought through and extremely thorough yet written in a way that owners will easily understand. This book will answer any query that an owner has about hyperthyroidism and greatly deepen owner understanding of the condition. A definite must for any practice that sees feline patients, and highly recommended for any owner of a hyperthyroid cat.’ Andrea Harvey, FAB Clinical Fellow in Feline Medicine, University of Bristol, UK.
‘I cannot recommend this book too highly – owners will get a lot out of it, nurses will learn quite a bit, and even experienced feline clinicians will find out some new ways of thinking about how to treat different individual patients.’ Professor Richard Malik, University of Sydney.
