Sunday Selfie and an Update.
I am taking part in the Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head.
As you know, I was unable to tolerate the Carbimazole for my hyperthyroidism, so after a month off medication to give my body chance to recover I went on Felimazole which is the same as Methimazole. Unfortunately after 2 weeks I was becoming ill again and had to stop them too.
I have been off medication again for a week but recovered much more quickly this time because mum and dad knew to look out for the first signs that it wasn't going well.
Mum has discussed natural medicine with my vet and ordered Thyroid Support Gold for me which will take 3 weeks to get here according to Amazon. That is bacon flavoured drops that can be put on my food.
The vet rang mum this morning and said he has talked to another vet and has been able to get Methimazole as a transdermal gel, so they went out and collected a pack this morning.
I am having it rubbed into my ear once a day to start with to see how I go with it. If it is the ingredients that I am allergic to, then I still won't be able to stay on it. It may be that my digestive tract can't take the pills but I will be okay with it being absorbed into my bloodstream. We will know how I am getting on with it by the time the Thyroid Gold arrives.
