Thiafeline tablets are indicated for the long-term treatment of feline hyperthyroidism and for the stabilisation of hyperthyroidism in cats prior to surgical thyroidectomy. The active substance acts by blocking the biosynthesis of thyroid hormone in cats. The primary action is to inhibit binding of iodide to the enzyme thyroid peroxidase, thereby preventing the catalysed iodination of thyroglobulin and T3 and T4 (thyroid hormone) synthesis.
