Hypo vs Hyper
We have been noticing some behavior changes with Cupid, so we took her to the vet to have her checked out. The vet recommended having blood work done and we agreed. A few days later we got the results and found out that Cupid has Hyperthyroidism.
The treatment is a special prescription diet. When I heard that I groaned because Cupid has become quite the picky kitty in her old age. So far, though, she has eaten her new food. She's not loving it, but she is at least eating it.
Cupid's thyroid diagnosis comes right on the heels of Benny's thyroid issues. Although, I think Cupid thinks she has outdone Benny once again. Her thyroid is working too hard, and Benny's thyroid is not working hard enough.
