Can you tell me if you have started treating Kitty for her thyroid disease?

Try offering canned chicken, chicken baby food to see if it tempts her.

Often when we start treating hyperthyroidism in an older cat within a few weeks we can start to see the kidney values increasing because hyperthyroidism in cats masks or hides kidney dysfunction.

Any vomiting ?
