Feline hyperthyroidism is the most common endocrinopathy in middle-aged and geriatric cats, characterized by an impairment of the redox status. Methimazole is the medical treatment of choice for the disease. However, the onset of methimazole-related side effects (i.e., hepatotoxicosis, gastrointestinal upset, vasculitis, facial pruritus, and blood dyscrasias) is likely caused by oxidative stress as well. We investigated the dietary supplementation of a mixture of antioxidants (i.e., curcumin, quercetin, resveratrol, and vitamin E) as additional treatment for hyperthyroid cats receiving methimazole. Our results showed that the antioxidants exert a protective effect against the oxidative stress induced by both the thyroid dysfunction and the administration of the drug, contributing to the reduction of methimazole-related side effects.
