Radioiodine Treatment

We have a dedicated Radioiodine ward within our hospital facilities and is one of only seven centres in the country to offer Radioiodine treatment. Cats are treated in a safe, isolated environment by a team of specially trained vets and nurses

Radioiodine Team 

The Radioiodine team includes:

Caroline Kisielewicz MVB CertSAM DipECVIM-CA MRCVS European and RCVS Recognised Specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine

Francis Boyer MA VetMB CertSAM MRCVS, Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Medicine, Assistant Professor University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine

Elsa Edery DEDV CEAV IntMed MSc (ClinOnc) MRCVS ECVIM-CA Resident in Small Animal Medicine

The team is supported by specially trained veterinary nurses

Ordering Radioactive Iodine

As there are limited places in the radioiodine ward, there is a waiting list. Once the radioactive iodine has been ordered, it cannot be cancelled after 14 days before the treatment date – owners cancelling after this date will have to pay for the drug.

Booking and Appointments

Enquiries and appointment requests should be made through our referral reception by calling 01332 548911 or referrals@prideveterinarycentre.co.uk.

Please send us all relevant history and laboratory results.

Costs (inclusive of VAT)

The initial assessment appointment costs £190 + blood pressure and lab fees (£300). Not all lab tests need to be performed if some have already been done at your practice.

We will usually perform an echocardiogram (£400) and may occasionally need to investigate an arrhythmia with an ECG (£170) or suspicion of congestive heart disease with thoracic radiographs (£300).

Treatment costs £1,520 and includes sedation, the radioactive iodine itself and 14 days of hospitalisation in the radioiodine ward.

A recheck appointment at Pride Veterinary Centre would cost £300 inclusive of any further laboratory tests required.
