Methimazole Compounded 1 1
not for cats I believe a dog would eat these "treats" up quickly, but they are not for cats. The compounded pill for a 5mg is about 1/2 inch and can be flavored (like chicken is made with chicken broth). The problem is that the consistency of the pill feels and will chew like a piece of plastic. It is so hard, you need a knife to cut it. Anyway, my cat licked it a couple of times but wouldnt eat it. If they were made much softer, a cat might go for it. 06/10/2013

She also must take Atenolol 25 mg, Enalapril 2.5 mg, and Hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg. It is very difficult for us to give her the meds without a huge struggle. She has am & pm doses and a bad heart - would like to keep things calmer. Are any of the meds besides Methimazole available in a topical form? If yes, how would these best be applied to ensure she gets proper dosing? (It seems the inside area of the ear is the best place, but how would we sequence the application?) Thank you.
Answer:We do carry Atenolol and Enalapril in transdermal forms through our compounding pharmacy, however not in the strengths you mentioned above. Please contact a local compounding pharmacy in your area that may be able to compound the medications your pet needs in a transdermal dosage form.
Can you compound this strength? Our previous vet got it for us in an easy to dispense pen form so the syringe method is new to us. Also, how much would the 10 mg syringes cost?
Answer:please call our pharmacy department and we will be happy to tell you about our compounded
transdermal methimazole and the options you have.
Answer:The expiration date will be indicated on the label, it depends on the dosage form of the methimazole.
ie how many doses at one a day does each order contain? Is it enough for 10 days, 20 days or what period?
Does each order come with everything you need to administer the given number of doses that each order covers ie is there a separate syringe for each day or does it come all loaded in one syringe which is then good for 10, 20 or 30 days of individual doses?
It is very unclear at 50mg/1ml to be given once a day exactly what you get by requesting one order. If you could be a bit more specific it would be appreciated.

Answer:Ken, please call our pharmacy at 1-888-738-6331 and provide the dose your cat gets of
methimazole per day....and we can tell you exactly how long a 50mg/1ml will last. For
example, if a cat is getting 5mg per day..........There are 10 doses...or a 10 days supplt in the
1 ml syringe. Typically, a customer will order 3 syringes of the 50mg/ml to have enough for a
one month supply. The most you can order would be a 90 day supply because the gel is only
stable for a 90 day period after being compounded.
