Questions

Is the flavoring (chicken) strong enough to counteract the bitterness of this medication? Will my cat still foam at the mouth? What options exist (transdermal, chew, liquid, pill) for a 2mg dosage?

Asked by: Mr Bravery
Flavoring chlorpheniramine liquid should help to mask the bitter taste of the drug. We also offer chewable tablets and a transdermal gel. Consult your veterinarian for the appropriate dosage form for your pet.

I have use benadryl and it causes horrible mouth foaming. Does this compounded liquid cause the same mouth foam reaction? The foaming scared my cat to death. It was funny but horrifying for her. She is very hard to pill, so looking for liquids

Asked by: Martini
My vet said the foaming was due to medications tasting very bitter. I wonder why a 1-800-petmeds Rep. hasn't answered this question on whether the compounded form would be flavored strong enough to counteract this? This concerns me as I'm researching options myself & I would be a new customer if this answer was definitively answered by one of them.

Do you need a script from the vet to get the compounded Chlorpheniramine in transdermal form? Also, she gets 2mg of Chlorpheniramine per dose and I was wondering what that would translate to if I purchased the transdermal form?

Asked by: Lindsay89
Thank you for your question. Compounded Chlorpheniramine does require a prescription.

I would like to use a liquid version of Chlorpheniramine for my cat as the tablet has been a pain to administer.  My vet would like my cat to have 4mg of the tablet form per day.  Would this liquid compounded version work and if so, at what ml/dose? 

Asked by: LisaG
Our liquid formulation comes in a concentration of 25 mg/mL. In order to give your cat 4 mg daily, you would need to give 0.16 mL per day.

Does the eye dropper for the chlorpheniramine have a 0.08mL line to give my cat the equivalent of 2mg?

Also, I am intersted in more information about the transdermal form of chlorpheniramine for cats.
Asked by: Sharon
No, that dose would be hard to measure.

dose & ingredients

My vet wanted to know what other ingredients are in the Chlorpheniramine liquid. It would be used for a cat. What dose would equal 2mg Chlorpheniramine
Asked by: MaCody
Chlorpheniramine is the active ingredient in the liquid dosage form we carry. A 2mg dose would be dependent on the strength of the medication. We carry a 25mg/ml liquid strength, thus 2mg would equal 0.08ml.
