All patients must be referred to the Radiotherapy Treatment Center at Atlanta Veterinary Specialists by their primary veterinarian.

If you wish, you can print and fill out the Patient Information Form for the day of your appointment.

Prior to your appointment

Patients are able to come to Atlanta Veterinary Specialists after their general practicing veterinarian has referred them. Once the appointment is made, we will gather all history.

Below is a checklist to help you remember everything required before we do treatment.

- We need a recent Complete Blood Count, Chemistry Profile, and heart rate check. Dr. Royce Roberts will review the medical information and answer any questions that you may have during your consultation.

- Please bring your cat in a carrier. The treated cats do not stay in the carrier during their stay at our hospital, but by law, they must go home in a carrier.

- Unfortunately because of the radiation we are unable to put cat beds in the kennel with the treated cats.

- Please bring a week's worth of your cat's favorite food. We will be happy to prepare it the exact same way you do at home.

- Discontinue any anti-thyroid medications, such as Tapazole/Methimazole at least 1 to 7 days prior to treatment.
