Essential Reading
It is very important that you have read the entire Essential Reading section (especially the information on Post Treatment Precautions) on this website, prior to your appointment. Many commonly asked questions are answered here.

Methimazole/Felimazole/Tapazole and/or herbal supplements must be discontinued at least 7 days prior to treatment. Hill's Prescription y/d must be discontinued at least 7 days prior to treatment. (Unless otherwise advised.)

Medical History & Appointment
Dr. Vaughan will be meeting with you and your cat at your appointment time. It is important that someone that lives with the cat and is aware of their medical history accompanies the cat. We will be able to keep your cat to administer the treatment the same day. We do not allow dogs inside the building.

Hyperthyroid cats should be free-fed all or mostly canned food with NO LIMIT. Please start offering ad lib canned food immediately. Your cat will be hospitalized for as little as one night up to 10 days. Since many cats are particular about what they eat, you are welcome to bring their favorite food(s). No fasting needed.

Personal Belongings: bedding, toys, and other personal items cannot accompany your cat into the nuclear medicine ward. Your cat must be in a pet carrier when you arrive. We suggest lining the carrier with a towel or blanket in the event of an accident.

Medications: If your cat is taking any medication, we will be happy to continue to administer that while they are in our care. Please bring each medication in its original container.

Payment: Is due at the time of admission. We accept all major credit cards including Care Credit. Cash is okay. Checks are not accepted.

Discharge: You must be able to pick up your cat on the day they are ready for release. We do not have space for boarding beyond the hospital stay. For discharge, we are open Mon-Fri 8:00 to 6:00 and Saturdays 8:00 to 4:00.

Location: We suggest using Google Maps to get directions. These are also on our website. Please note the Shoreline location is not near Lynnwood on Highway 99. We are located in King County on Aurora and we share a building with Cats Exclusive Veterinary Center for which you will see a large orange sign.
