free T4 test on Pita and she said that they don't do free T4 tests on cats
... just dogs. I thought I was losing my mind about the free T4 test and
backed down. But I just read an article in the latest Cat Fancy Magagine
about hyperT and it was mentioned. Think I will make her a copy :) She
just loves it when I do that <wink>
She mentioned a T3 instead but doesn't think it is necessary. What is the
difference between a T3 and a free T4? Pita's T4 was upper end normal but I
still think something else is going on based on his symptoms and what I've
read about hyperT.
