Hyperthyroidism Information | Chico Hospital for Cats Skip to Main Content Skip to Footer


Details about this common feline disease and its treatment.

The Thyroid glands sit on either side of the voice box. They produce hormones that control the body’s metabolism (e.g., how fast food calories are burned, how much-inhaled oxygen is used, and how rapidly the heart beats). In other words, how fast your cat’s “engine is revving” depends on how much thyroid hormone is produced. Older cats often develop a benign growth in one or both thyroid glands, resulting in excessive hormone production.
