Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am sorry for the delay in response.

Friend, as you may already know a cat that is Hyperthyroid has an over production of thyroid hormone. In other words, the patient is producing too much thyroid hormone. The goal of treatment is to reduce the levels of thyroid hormone to eliminate the symptoms associated with hyperthyroidism. Tapazole decreases the levels of thyroid hormones by inhibiting the synthesis of thyroid hormones.
