Learn More about I-131 Treatment

We know that I-131 treatment for your cat is a significant decision, which is why we have assembled this page to serve as a resource for cat owners. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at (770) 407-3000. We are happy to help. 

Cost of Treatment


Affordable 0% Payment Option

The cost of treatment is $1,560.00.

We accept personal checks, cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Debit Cards. We also accept TruPanion pet insurance, so you only have to pay applicable deductibles and copays.


We are proud to offer CareCredit*, allowing up to 18 months 0% interest-deferred financing (at less than $85 per month) for your cat to receive the feline hyperthyroid treatment he or she needs. Many cat owners find the cost of I-131 treatment is less than long-term twice daily medical treatment with methimazole for your cat. 

*CareCredit is a healthcare credit card issued by Synchrony Bank. 0% interest-deferred financing is available as long as the balance is paid in full within 18 months of treatment. See your Cardmember Agreement and the Promotional Financing Terms for full disclosures and information. 


Reduced Cost Re-Treatment Policy

While this treatment has been shown 95% effective, some cats do require a second radioiodine injection to achieve normal thyroid function. In an effort to allay your concerns about that possibility, we will happily retreat your cat for a reduced cost. While 95% of our patients will never need this option, our goal is to ensure that all of our patients receive the most complete treatment available.

In order to qualify for reduced cost re-treatment, your cat must be healthy enough (based on the interpretation of our veterinarians and your family practice veterinarian) to have the second radioiodine injection. The second treatment must also be based on urinalysis and blood chemistry including both a free T4 and total T4 Thyroid Profile (T4) lab results obtained from a reference laboratory showing that your cat still has hyperthyroidism. In-Clinic laboratory tests do not have the same accuracy and reliability as reference laboratory results, so a reference lab test is required to verify that your cat still has feline hyperthyroidism. AVS reserves the right to request a thyroid scintigraphy to determine if the patient is truly hyperthyroid.

The T4 result showing that your cat still has feline hyperthyroidism must be based on lab work run no less than 6 months from the date of treatment and no more than 18 months from treatment. 

This guarantee is offered for treatments offered after September 15, 2018.
