Thompson Update

Thompson's test results came back and his thyroid tested on the high end of normal.  The vet said that typically cats with hyperthyroidism tend to eat a lot and still lose weight.  Thompson has been skipping meals on a regular basis for several months. Not sure what to do next...

You probably already did a full blood panel to check for other common diseases of aging cats like diabetes, kidney disease, cancer, etc. You might try a higher calorie food like vet-prescribed Science Diet AD. Is his stool normal?

We're purring for Thompson. What has the vet suggested?

I was going to say the same thing as The Island Cats. I would do whatever it is the vet suggested. Sending purrs.

I also wondered if his poop is "normal". Could he have irritable bowel?
