Hyperthyroidism  Treatment
Hyperthyroidism Treatment

Our cat Chanel has developed "Hyperthyroidism." She went from 21 pounds 3 years ago to 8.9 pounds as of today. I need to get her treated as soon as possible with a new treatment utilizing radioactive-iodine. A single injection of Radioiodine (I-131) cures 98-99% of Feline Hyperthyroidism cases without any adverse side effects. However, the treatment is very expensive. Radioactive-iodine therapy is quickly becoming the treatment of choice for cats with hyperthyroidism. During treatment, radioactive iodine is administered as an injection and is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. The iodine is taken up by the thyroid gland but not by other body tissues. Left untreated, Chanel's heart will eventually fail. Most cats that receive treatment for their thyroid problem return to satisfactory heart function. But when the cat is brought in late in the disease, the pet may need heart support before its thyroid problem can be dealt with. Chanel has had this now at least 4 months and I need to raise some funding to get her treated right away. Your support is really appreciated and it is for a good cause. Thank you so much for your consideration in this matter.
