Hello Soniag27 and thanks for posting.

This article on Hyperthyroid in Cats specifies several treatments, but none of which are herbal. The article says it "is almost always associated with a cancer-a benign adenoma (more common) or a malignant adenocarcinoma. These cancers tend to occur in older cats and the major effect is the increased thyroid hormone production they stimulate."

I would encourage you to work with your vet and talk to him or her if you have concerns over the treatment plan proposed for your cat.

Let us know how your kitty is doing,

Byroney
