Hyperthyroidism is well recognised to be the most common feline endocrinopathy encountered in clinical practice. Whilst most practitioners have vast experience in treating these cases, recently new treatments and new insights into treatment have become available. Furthermore, although the majority of cases may be straightforward to diagnose and treat, there are also many cases that prove to be much more challenging. It is important that the clinician recognises the potential difficulties in management, and the complications that may arise, to enable owners to be well informed and involved in the decision making as to the most appropriate treatment option for their cat.  Emerging evidence has also led to changes in some of the recommendations for the treatment of feline hyperthyroidism, and it is critical for practitioners to keep up to date.  This lecture aims to give an update on new information published on the management of hyperthyroidism over the last couple of years and an evidenced based approach to best practice in managing this common disease.
