Azlan, my foster kitty
Azlan is hyperthyroid, which means he has an overactive thyroid gland. He is currently on an oral medication and doing very well. Azlan is a sweet boy, he probably around 10 years old. He was living behind a bar on Main St. In 2011, he developed an ulcer in one of his eyes that unfortunately wouldn't heal despite treatment and had to have his left eye removed at the end of July that year. Despite all that, he is an incredible bundle of love and has a the loudest purr I have ever heard.
There are some feedings he takes his pill well, other times, not so much.
While Azlan is doing well with his medication, it can cost anywhere from $500 - $1000 per year, as well as periodic blood testing to make sure his medication level is correct. He takes a pill twice daily to remain healthy but one Radioiodine treatment will eliminate the need for medication. As with most major medical proceedures, this costs a lot of money in one shot which is why I am making this appeal.
Northwest Nuclear Medicine for Animals has the treatment and in the long run this can save a lot of long term costs.
In the event the goal is not reached, all funds will be donated to his home shelter, Homefinders Animal Rescue.
