My baby, Daisy (who is also deaf), has a tumor on her thyroid. She's 5-years-old and it was found about a year ago. The vet said that they do not like to do surgery on the thyroid to remove tumors because it can cause other problems. He told me to keep an eye on her weight - if she gains too much or loses too much. So far, her weight has not fluctuated. She always gains a little in the winter months, but is already starting to lose that. Anyway, I am on constant alert to make sure that the tumor isn't growing too fast, but it feels a lot bigger to me. I'm so worried about her. Does anyone know if it can block her throat and cut off her breathing? She seems okay, but I'm a worried mama! LOL!!! She's one of my "children!"
Thanks for any information you might have to offer!
aw..poor baby girl. I'm so sorry. I am not sure what a tumor on the thyroid would do to a cat; but I'm hoping what you mentioned never happens and that she can live a long and happy life. I saw the picture you have posted and she is a beautiful girl. Coonies are my favorite breed. Well, I hope somone will give you an answer. Have you asked your vet about what a thyroid tumor can cause? I can always ask mine if you'd like, just for a second opinion, if that makes you feel better. Just let me know a'right? And remember, positive thoughts always make things better.
