    Absolutely this is not hyperesthesia unless it is included along with everything else that is happening, so don't let the vet pass it off as that. Chelsea has lived comfortably for several years with hyperesthesia and it has never reached anything like your baby. I agree with those who think...

    Doctor recommended for radioactive iodine NE USA

    I have had two hyperthyridic cats and neither had hyperesthesia. However, another cat whose thyroid was fine did have it, diagnosed by the vet, not just anecdotally by me. In your area it would seem to me that there would be numerous places that are available for this; of course, I understand...

    The early days of treating Feline Hyperesthesia

    Just cats being cats or something else?

    I can only comment on hyperesthesia, which Chelsea who is 10 has. If we are assuming hyperesthesia here, the difference is that Chelsea has never reacted to normal objects as strange, but always went into "states" where her eyes got big and dark and she started to snarl at an unseen and...

    ...she got fleas for the first time (she is 16+), and we are still battling them. So, do the flea check first, just in case. As far as hyperesthesia, there is no way to diagnose it for sure, and there are varying levels of it as well. Feeby, likely has a mild case of hyperesthesia, and so I...
