As our furry feline friends age they are more likely to develop hyperthyroidism and weakening kidneys, and we must give them medication. Many of us must provide some sort of medication to our feline friends daily and with that of course comes the high cost of keeping those highly curios felines healthy and because one needs to keep these highly active felines healthy one also encounters the challenge of making certain they swallow or take their medication. For many whom are cat owners they relate and understand the challenges of attempting to feed any medications to their cats. Some have attempted to cover the medication in a treat (the problem with this could be that the treat is high in iodine), or some even attempt to wrap the cat in a towel to force the medication and to avoid the potential of being scratched. Although these may be effective to some degree they are not the only options. With some additional research and/or contacting your veterinary to seek further assistance as to what may be the better solution in administering your pets medication, will not only make one’s life easier but it will also make your feline friends life easy as well. Again we believe feeding of medications are readily available, it is just a matter of searching or making that phone call!
If your cat has been diagnosed with “hyperthyroidism” or in layman’s terms thyroid health problems and as a pet owner one has been giving any medications to the cat in form of pills or any other form not easily consumed by the cat, there is good news! Hill’s has developed a prescription diet that has been clinically proven to control the thyroid by lowering the amount of iodine our cats take in, which is the trigger for thyroid problems. Hill’s introduced their Y/D Prescription Diet in September of 2011 and it has made life much easier at home for many pets and pet owners. On average it takes about seven days for your cat to transition from the hyperthyroid medication once they start only eating Hill’s Y/D formula. The Y/D formula diet also promotes healthy kidneys and smoother looking coat. This is essential to older felines because they are more prone to kidney problems and hyperthyroidism. The best part is that now as a pet owner we won’t have to worry about how to make our furry friends take their prescription medication.
