Hills is introducing a new diet in Canada specifically for the treatment of hyperthyroidism. It’s possible we may not have to treat these cats with medication anymore!
Hills Prescription Diet Y/D canned feline foodThe thyroid gland, located in your cat’s neck, uses dietary iodine to produce thyroid hormones, which help regulate important body functions including your cat’s heart rate, metabolism, body temperature, bowel function and blood pressure.  If the cat has hyperthyroidism, the thyroid gland will be enlarged and produce excessive amounts of thyroid hormone.  Hills Y/D carefully limits the levels of dietary iodine to reduce thyroid hormone production and help restore thyroid health.
