    that's what I was thinking. When OH started to need blood tests he could either go to the local hospital so that was a couple of hours away from work plus petrol and parking. Then a weeks wait and you had to ring the surgery and quite often the surgery would just say make an appointment - more time away from work and more waiting. After 3 months he finally got onto the blood test appointment lists at our local surgery so its just a quick half hour out of work - you were literally waiting for someone to leave the appointments list (death, hospital admission, house move etc) before you got onto the local lists.
    But with a cat you can talk to your vet, have a blood test straight away, results within the hour and meds picked up and treatment started same day

    They have oxygen on board and can administer if he feels ill. Also you can get a portable machine to take on board if needed.
    I don't know how advanced it is but my father was in a very advanced state and had all these facilities on board.

    M lists - page 18 (on 40 posts per page setting) - Avs M: post 704-707 inclusive; "Buy in M": post 707 onwards.

    Yeah, that blasted word "normal" scrape into the reference range your "normal" your symptoms are not thyroid related. They seem have lost the concept of individuality and being optimal for that person. Free t3 below range according to my GP "doesn't matter" err thats the active hormone!

    Fed up of the amount of times I have been offered anti depressant. So based exactly on what I say, they are prepared to write a prescription for something that is generally no better than a sugar pill, can come with increase risk of suicide, alters brain chemistry and can take years to come off of. Yet a blood test proves I have low ft3 and they won't give me what I need Mind boggling!
