My 10 yr old cat has hyper thyroidism. He is taking tapazole (5mgs) to correct that. He just recently was in for a check and a geriatric blood panel. The results were all fine. His organs are all working well. However, the reason for the trip to the vet was the severe gagging when I give hime his pill and now when he eats. To the point that he is hestitant after he gags to continue to eat. Other than that he is fine. Its to the point I am going to have to try to give him is meds crushed up. I thought perhaps his thyroid was enlarged and that was making his throat over sensitive. That was not the case. He at times gags so hard his jaws dislocate. Any ideas?

I will admit to not knowing the answer to this one i'm afraid. whether or not it is associated with his condition i have no idea. I would have thought that the vet would have mentioned this when you visited if it was connected.
Perhaps someone else here will have experienced a similar situation and will add a reply.
best wishes Kate
