I work with vets, and I know one of the top feline specialists in the UK, and in the US, I pay attention, and learn only from the best  ;)

Plus, I am a member of online support groups for cats with hypert and chronic renal failure (anyone can join) the group is now recognised by vets, and we have saved a lot of cats' lives along the way.

As long as the dose of thyroid meds is introduced slowly and at a low dose, then the kidney function can be guaged, it does involve a few blood tests tho, 3 weeks after starting the first dose, blood tests are the most expensive thing, the meds are cheap. 

In saying this, i know nothing about dogs lol.

Thanks, composthappens.

I'm glad you kept it simple, I see what you mean about the kidneys though. kidney failure in cat's seems quite  common without the help of thyroid meds.

We say 13, but as a stray she may be a lot older, she's certainly had a hard life, digging in bins, drinking dew.

Looks like day med's or the day op, Isotope, £2,000 is a bit much, O/H won't go for that & need to travel to a veterinary hospital or Yorkshire for treatment. Place must be licensed, our vet is not.

I'd like the trip to Yorkshire, not sure Slinky would.  ::)
