Dr. Peterson Wins Award for Paper: Spontaneous primary hypothyroidism in 7 adult cats

One of Dr. Peterson's recently published papers won an award, presented by Oxford Laboratories, for "excellence in the advancement of knowledge concerning small animal endocrinology."

The paper,  Spontaneous primary hypothyroidism in 7 adult cats, is available in full as a download at this link.

We've cross-posted this paper on Medium here.

Given the paucity of data regarding adult‐onset feline hypothyroidism, we sought to describe the history, clinical features (including presence or absence of goiter), diagnostic testing, treatment, and long‐term outcome of 7 adult cats with spontaneous primary hypothyroidism. For these cats, we used the serum concentrations of T4, free T4 (fT4), and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), and results of thyroid scintigraphy to aid in both the diagnosis and long‐term monitoring of thyroid hormone replacement treatment.
