Hyperthyroidism is the most diagnosed feline endocrinopathy. In this engaging panel discussion, esteemed world-renowned experts will converge to share their invaluable insights, diverse perspectives, and evidence-based approaches regarding when and how to screen cats for this condition, pre-treatment evaluation, selection of an appropriate treatment modality, and considerations regarding long term follow-up for affected cats. Issues related to common comorbidities such as chronic kidney disease and inflammatory bowel disease will also be discussed and debated. 

This illuminating panel discussion promises to equip attendees with a comprehensive understanding of feline hyperthyroidism diagnosis and management, empowering them to deliver optimal care and improve the quality of life for their feline patients. Join us as we unravel the complexities and chart the course towards better outcomes for these cats. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with the panelists, ask questions and share their own experiences.
