Dr. Raymond J. Morandi obtained his B.S. from
Bradley University in Peoria Illinois. He then continued his degree
of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University. Dr
Morandi established the Orland Park Equine Hospital in 1969 and was
licensed for radiation therapy in animals in 1975. In 1994 it became
evident to him, as in humans, that Iodine 131 was a beneficial
treatment for hyperthyroidism in cats. He then established the first
private institution in the State of Illinois to begin treating cats
for hyperthyroidism with Iodine 131. This procedure has become the
treatment of choice for hyperthyroidism, and many cats have lived
longer, healthier lives as a result.
