1 ml 2times daily of fluoxetine for cat. What would be the most cost effective, pill or transdermal gel. And how much for a months worth? Thanks

Asked by: Tipper cat
We have several options for Fluoxetine. Therefore, it is hard to say what will last you a month and how much it will be. All of our options are prices are listed there on the website. The liquid or pill would probably be the most cost effective. If you need further help explaining, give us a call.

Has anyone noticed if cats enjoy the chicken flavored chewables?

Chicken flavor is sometimes dispensed for felines, it would really depend on your pet's preference. We have other flavors available as well.

Can fluoxetine chewtabs be split?

For example, if the dosage for my pet is 2.5mg, can I buy a 10mg chewtab and split it into 4 pieces?
Asked by: mg
My dog gets 5mg, 2x a day, so we split the 10mg chews in half. They are very soft and about the size of a dime. It would be four pretty small pieces if you cut it in quarters, but you definitely could.

Is Fluoxetine available in a tablet?

Asked by: Louiecat
It is available by tablet but not from 1-800-PetMeds. It used to be available through them and relatively affordable. Now the tabs can be bought through a competitor but it is prohibitively expensive.

What is the equivalent

my cat is currently taking the transdermal medicine of fluoxetine. The prescription says: "cp.fluoxetine 2.5MG/0.1ML TTS Gel 3GM I am not sure what all that means and was wondering if you sold the equivalent.
Asked by: sdenil
We do carry the fluoxetine transdermal gel; however, we do not carry the strength specified on the prescription. The closest we have to that is the 5mg/0.1 ml gel, you may be able to use our product instead but that would depend on the dose you are giving the cat. You may need to call and talk to one of our pharmacists to see if we are able to fill your prescription.

Is a 1 ml transdermal syringe a 30-day supply? What is the shelf life of the transdermal medicine?

Asked by: Megan

How long before a bottle of the oral liquid goes bad? Like when I first get the bottle, how many months until it goes bad? (i.e. Could I get a bottle that equals 6 months worth of drug?)

Asked by: Kris

Average shelf life for the liquid?

Tablets vs liquid

My vet prescribed .05 mg of Prozac per day for my cat because of anxiety/fearfulness. It is quite the ordeal for us to find her (she is always hiding) and administer the liquid. I have to swaddle her and immediately hold her mouth shut after giving her the medication and she always foams at the mouth afterwards. Is this the medicine coming back up or is she foaming because she is upset or doesn't like the taste of it? Would tablets be easier to administer and be more affective? She has been on the medication for about two weeks now with no signs of improvement.
Asked by: Cathy

We are currently giving our cat compounded Fluoxetine as a cream in the outer ear.  The  dose is 7mg/0.1ml.   Is your transdermal a gel or a cream?  The cream works well dispensed from a syringe but the gel does not.  Do you offer this specific dosage? 

Asked by: philmac

Is "Fluoxetine 50mg/ml 1ml transdermal", the same as "Fluoxetine 5mg/0.1ml transdermal"?
