"Qato" was transferred to Bristol Vet School
where he was injected with radioactive iodine. (Iodine is
used to create thyroid hormone within the thyroid gland).
The build up of radioactive iodine then destroys the surrounding
tissue, effectively curing this disease.
Whilst the levels of radiation were insufficient to allow
"Qato" to glow in the dark he was hospitalised
as a precautionary measure for several weeks to avoid any
international nuclear incidents!
One year on, as his picture shows, "Qato" continues
to thrive and is maintaining his weight and condition all
Now, if only I could develop a touch of hyperthyroidism
to see me through the festive season...
