At a follow-up visit two weeks later, the owner reports that Miss Kitty is doing well but still seems to be drinking more than normal. The owner also reports that she is having difficulty giving the medication consistently because Miss Kitty is a "pill to pill." Her physical examination findings are unchanged, and her hydration status is normal.
These are the abnormal findings on her laboratory tests:
Absolute reticulocytes (/µl)
Serum chemistry panel
Which of the following plans would be LEAST appropriate in the further management of Miss Kitty?
b) Leave the current dose of methimazole the same, but discuss other medication administration options with the owner such as pill pockets or a liquid formulation of methimazole to make it easier to give the medication consistently. Recheck Miss Kitty in two to three weeks.
