Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! My 19 year old cat developed a Thyroid disorder a couple of years ago. He loved the 5 mg chews I was getting from the Vet, but I was going broke giving them twice per day. Thank goodness for 1800 Pet Meds!!...they are at least half the price (if not more) and the service is extremely reliable. His check ups have been great, and I would not buy his meds anywhere else!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price but no flavor option... It works great and I'm happy for the liquid version as my Kitty would not do the treats or the pills. I do wish they would allow flavor choices tho instead of always tuna.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oral Thyroid Meds I just placed my 2nd order for 180 Edible Methimazole 10mg compounded. Great product. My cat, Magic, age 17, loves them. I give him 2/day for a total of 20mg/day. I previously used 5mg oral pills and had to pry open his mouth and drop them in. The oral version is great. Magic looks forward to taking his meds and want more!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A miracle for cat meds It was pure torture to get my lovely kitty to take a pill and because of tooth decay, she couldn't handle the pill wraps. Then came this transdermal hyperthyroid medication--you just shoot a small amount out of a plastic syringe right on to the inside of tehear where there is no hair.....and that's it. The cat gets her meds and an ear rub and both she and I are happy. By the way--PetMeds is one third the price of a local pharmacy for this compounded medication--can't beat it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only chewable medication my cat will eat! My cat developed thyroid problems after he turned 10 years old and he had lost a lot of weight. He won't take pills and he didn't like the first chewable medication that the Vet ordered. This is the only medication that he will eat and he takes it twice a day. He has gained weight and is doing better. We are very happy customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It saved my cat's life!!!!! Without the chewable compounding, my cat wouldn't be alive! This is a treat for my cat, not the struggle of trying to get a pill down her throat, hiding the pill and hoping she will eat it, crushing it up into anything she will eat, you know the unsuccessful drills. Cat owners know the horrors of your pet being on twice a day medication and she won't have anything to do with the pill. She's not a dog who will eat anything. I'm a five year chewable customer who is 100% satisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Questions

If I buy the 100mg and only need to give 0.1 ml per day, will the medication go bad before I use it all? I saw an ad that said to use within 80 days and this would last almost twice that long?

Asked by: Pati
Thank you for your question. The medication expires after 6 months.

My car was prescribed 5mg two times a day. What would be the best option to last the month? Also, what is the difference between the liquid and transdermal.

Asked by: kerri
It all depends on how much you can afford at a time. The Trandermal is rubbed on the skin and the liquid is given by mouth.

Does transdermal Methimazole have less GI side effects?

Asked by: Noreen
Yes. Although oral administration is more effective, transdermal methimazole has been used with some success in cats unable to tolerate oral administration. Please consult your veterinarian to discuss if this medication is appropriate for your pet. Thank you.

Thank you for your question. We do not offer the brand name Felimazole in anything other than the tablet form. We do offer to compound the generic which is Methimazole into a liquid.

I see 5 mg for the transdermal gel but not 2.5 mg or .05 mL. Do you not offer this dosage ?

Asked by: Sherri
You can achieve a 2.5mg dose of methimazole by applying 0.05 ml of the 50mg/ml concentration of methimazole transdermal gel.
