Hyperthyroid is when the thyroid is overactive, where it produces too many thyroid hormones. This overproduction of hormones could lead to unexplained weight loss, anxiety, hot spots, itchy red skin, hair loss, and more frequent bowel movements.
We do not suggest removing the thyroid with surgery. We do, however, suggest supplementing it with proper nutraceuticals and diet. I believe that when the body is overproducing a hormone of enzymes, it is compensating for lack of somewhere else in the body. So, in this case, I would suggest giving your animal what it is over-producing to level out this issue.
How to Holistically Treat your Cat with Hypothyroidism?
For animals (both dogs and cats) with Hyperthyroidism, I recommend the following:
- Super Food Supplement: Superfood supplement by Vitality Science can be considered a multivitamin. This multivitamin exceeds others and why it is essential for the vitality of an animal with hyperthyroidism because Super Food Supplement contains Cromax and Arabinogalactan, which helps regulate blood sugar and other blood sugar nutrients that make the animal feel “not lacking,” thus not with anxiety and irritability. This will also help with hair loss. Hair loss happens when the body lacks nutrients. The first place that the body will leech nutrients is the hair, nails, and teeth. Super Food Supplement will help replace those lacking nutrients. The amount of iodine present is minuscule. And it is a necessary nutrient for optimum health.
- Blessed Relief: Much like how enzymes are explained in the article about My Cat Suffers from Hypothyroidism. Enzymes are designed to break down rotting food particles and reduce inflammation. The difference with Vitality Science’s Blessed Relief is that they are a concentrated multi-spectrum enzyme formula. Blessed relief will help reduce skin irritation and hot spots that may happen as a symptom of hyperthyroidism. And as a bonus, the animal will still receive the added benefits of adding enzymes to their diet for easy absorption of nutrients of good digestion.
- CBD (HEMP OIL): by Vitality Science: Everybody (human or animal) has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system activates and distributes hormones in the body. The ECS is most generously activated with CBD oil! This is an alternative route to managing thyroid hormones in the blood. Side note: There is a great website that can help you determine the dosage of CBD oil for your animal called www.CBDDOSAGECALCULATOR.com
- Feline Comfort: Vitality Science Comfort line is excellent for many things, but specifically for hyperthyroidism, it helps calm the stomach. Remember, when the stomach is calm, everything else is calm. It has psyllium seeds which help add extra fiber for excessive elimination. And is an overall nutrient to a healthy animal’s gut.
In conclusion, make your kitty comfortable. No stress. Unfortunately, until these symptoms are under control, this is not the time to move or introduce a new pet to the home. You will want to reduce stress and anxiety as much as possible. If your cat is extra anxious, two more great products to have handy in the cabinet are Luxolite and Soothing Solution. These are both designed for many great health benefits and help ease an extra anxiety cat. Hyperthyroidism is not a definitive diagnosis. However, a cat can live a happy and healthy life with the proper supplementation.

Isn’t this misleading? Hyperthyroidism is measured by a blood test for T4. If it’s elevated and the cat is showing symptoms, the cat needs Tapazole to suppress the thyroid hormone or radioactive treatment to end the disease.
We are simply stating what one can do for the symptoms in which it presents. Our supplements can and have been of great help to many cats with hyperthyroidism.
my cat was given the methimazole and had a horrible reaction and I thought she was dying. We have started her on the Y/D and will see how that goes as she is terribly picky.

My senior cat was prescribed methimazole as well. We switched him to raw diet combined with his meds, he lived 3 more years (17). According to the vet he outlived what they expected and died of natural causes.
