Abstract

Client-owned cats underwent surgery to remove palpable cervical masses in cats with normal total T4 values and no clinical signs of hyperthyroidism, renal disease, or hyperparathyroidism. Non-functional thyroid and parathyroid adenomas were found and identified by histopathological examination. The significance of these findings is discussed in relation to palpating a goiterous mass in an asymptomatic cat.
