    Did you register it online with Dyson? Mine packed up recently, couldn't find receipt but checked on Dyson website and it was still within the 5 year warranty so they came out and fixed it, no problem

    Just back from the vets. Ronnie our oldest cat has been steadily getting thinner since Christmas although otherwise still his normal alpha male self. It occurred to me during the night that my mum went stick thin when her thyroid was over active so I googled and Ronnie fitted the pattern.

    We have a fabulous vet who must be nearly 80 now, tried to retire but got bored so he just does 2 days a week now so our cats are only allowed to be ill on a Monday or Tuesday.

    Vet checked Ronnie over, his heart rate was racing (mind you vets are scary people to cats so its no wonder) He also asked if his appetite was good (it always has been) but that and his spine protruding he said were classic indicators of an over active thyroid. He said it upsets the metabolic rate so they start burning up fat hence the weight lose. He weighed him but actually his weight was fairly normal so he was stout to begin with. He also took a blood sample and said he would ring us in an hour - actually we had barely got home when he rang.
    No diabetes thankfully but he has got feline hyperthyroid so we set off again for the vets to collect the meds.
    Ronnie has a liquid meds which I've got to squirt into his mouth twice a day and gradually after 3 weeks he will start to plump up again.

    (it made me wonder how long it would take to diagnosis and treat humans with the same condition )

    Hyperthyroidism: all they tend to want to is either nuke it, or remove it Then telling them hypothyroidism is much easier to manage

    Some people can have hypothyroidism for decades before it will actually show up in a blood test where they deem it suitable to treat. Then the treatment is terrible........

    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

    I count myself as fortunate in that I had no trouble in getting diagnosed, my TSH played ball at >150. It's the treatment, that t4 is all you need is what I have issue with.

    The only endo I have seen is one I have paid for. !!!!in' useless. I emailed him with some info, He said he would write to my GP explaining it's significance...... has he bothered no.


    Still waiting to see an NHS endo.... 5 months after referral was made.

    Edit Hey whats wrong with !!!!?
    Something unexpected happened which made me smile and still continues to make me smile.

    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.
