Nickie, can you clarify for me what "not working" means? Did 10 mg daily not bring Cosmic's T4 (total thyroid blood test) into the normal range or it did but Cosmic continued vomiting?
Thank you for the additional information. When such a high dose is required we need to consider that Cosmic represents the very small percentage of hyperthyroid cats who don't have a benign adenoma on their thyroid gland but, instead, an adenocarcinoma of the thyroid gland. Has the effectiveness of the 15 mg dose been assessed yet?
I understand. If the 15 mg works to decrease the T4 into the normal range but Cosmic continues to vomit, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and its sequela small cell lymphoma need to be considered. Lymphoma is a cancer just as is adenocarcinoma. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
You're quite welcome. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.
Thank you for your kind accept. I appreciate it.
