Eric Bregman, VMD has been treating Hyperthyroid cats with Radioactive Iodine for over 16 years.  He has successfully treated hundreds of patients during that time.  Our nuclear medicine facility is housed in a veterinary hospital with access to digital radiology, ultrasound and in house diagnostics.  Patients are cared for in a room dedicated to the treatment of Hyperthyroid cats. The treatment room is monitored via webcam to protect our patients and our staff.

We accept referrals and Dr. Bregman is happy to discuss treatment options with both referring veterinarians and their clients.  The Following is a list of pre-treatment diagnostics:

  • Serum Chemistry, Complete Blood Count, Urine Analysis, and a T4
  • Screening Chest Radiographs.  To be completed at the referring veterinarians office or at the Purrfect Thyroid Veterinary Center.
  • ECG performed at referring veterinarians discretion
  • Echocardography.  This should be performed for patients with known cardiac issues or abnormalities in heart rhythm and in the presence of a murmur.

Feel free to complete our online referral form and upload lab results and images that will be send directly to our Nuclear Medicine Staff.
