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!

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.

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!!

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!

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.

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.

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.

What is Methimazole Compounded?

Methimazole is used to treat hyperthyroidism in cats. It has largely replaced propylthiouracil in this treatment process since it has a lower incidence of adverse side effects. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Methimazole requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

NOTE: Methimazole for 5 mg tablets are also available.

For:

Cats

Benefits:

  • Effectively treats hyperthyroidism in cats
  • Rapid results

How does Methimazole Compounded work?

Hyperthyroidism is a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. Methimazole inhibits the production of thyroid hormones.

Cautions:

Blood tests must be done to check for proper dosage. Do not use in pregnant or nursing pets. Do not give your pet a live vaccine while giving methimazole. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops signs of an infection.

Methimazole Compounded Directions:

  • Methimazole is a prescription medication used by veterinarians to treat overactive (hyper) thyroid in cats.
  • Methimazole is not FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe this medication for cats.
  • Methimazole is also used before thyroid surgery or radioactive iodine treatment.
  • Periodic blood tests will be necessary while your cat is taking this medication.
Tip:

Do not use in pregnant or nursing animals. Methimazole can be given with or without food.

What is a Compounded Medication?

A compounded medication is the creation of a particular medication to fit the unique needs of a patient, including changing the form of the medication (e.g., from a solid pill to a liquid) for a variety reasons (e.g., to make it easier to take, to avoid a non-essential ingredient, to obtain the exact dose needed, adding favorite flavors).

If you are having difficulty giving your pet prescribed medication or need to find a discontinued medication, 1-800-PetMeds offers compounding services on select medications. We can prepare the following: (1) custom strength quantities of a medication (as capsules, liquid, chewable tablets, or transdermal (absorbed through the skin); (2) dosage forms to mask bitter or unpleasant taste (such as capsules or chewable tablets that can also be flavored); (3) dosage forms to make it easier to dose your pet such as a transdermal or liquid (that can also be flavored); and (4) discontinued products such as cisapride or DES.
