My cat is one of the few who cannot take Methimazole? (thyroid medication). He nearly died this past three weeks and we are happy (and $1200 poorer) to have him alive and recovering. BUT he does need to have radioactive iodine treatment. The price in the city is ANOTHER $1,900. I was thinking that there may be a place I could drive to that would be more affordable? Upstate perhaps? Anyone have any ideas on this? (Surgery is $4k)!! Yikes.
