This fund is for Magic who was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and Lymphedema and needs Radio-iodine therapy as well as ongoing treatment.

Please help Magic get the treatment he needs. Magic was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and Lymphedema. Hyperthyroidism has caused Magic to suffer from significant weight loss, increased drinking and urination, vomiting, diarrhea, and weakness in his muscles making it difficult for him to jump, climb or balance. The best treatment for him is Radio-iodine therapy, which can cost up to $1700 but should cure the hyperthyroidism and will improve his quality of life greatly. He has tried Methimazole treatment but it makes him itchy (due to a slight allergic reaction) and although it controls his levels it has not stopped his weight loss or muscle weakness.
Lymphedema is a serious medical condition that causes fluid buildup in areas of the body. In Magic's case the fluid buildup is in his chest, which constricts the lungs, inhibits breathing and can be fatal if not monitored and the excess fluid drained. Each visit to the vet (at least once a month) consists of x-rays, blood tests and draining of fluid if needed which costs over $200 each visit.
Magic is the most loving, affectionate cat and everyone who meets him falls in love. He deserves to live a long healthy life and hopefully you will find it in your heart to help him get the treatment he needs to give him a chance at that.
