My cat was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism just over two years ago. He was 16 years old. He has to take a tablet every day for the rest of his life. After the initial panic - no cats willingly take pills. We realized it could be hidden inside Gourmet Gold senior pate - his favorite food. He now has his regular treat at 6.30pm every evening. He comes to me every evening at about that time and asks for it. At the time, we were unaware of any other brand of cat food that would allow us to complete hide a tablet in it. Hence it literally saved Tom's life. We could not ask for anything more from a cat food.
