i just had my 21 year old at the vet for a geriatric exam. the blood work came back with a high T4, which means hyperthyroid.
what can i expect now? my vet recommended this gel i put on her ear and it's suppose to absorb into the blood to control it. i think it's called 'trans dermal gel'.

my vet also felt her right kidney and says it's bumpy. he showed me how i can feel it and it felt bumpy. he also said he could not feel the left kidney. does anyone have thoughts on this also? he recommended a ultra sound to get a better check on the kidneys and the abdomen as well. 'smokey' has a history of a liver mass removed which is another reason he recommended the ultrasound. only thing stopping me there is $345.

thanks for any input.
