Our cat has to take 7.5mg of Methimazole 2 times a day. How would I do that if using the transdermal method? Also, what size bottle should I get and how long would it last?

Asked by: frank
If you order the 100mg/ml concentration, 0.075ml equals a 7.5mg dose. Each 1 ml syringe will last approximately 6.6 days. So 5 syringes is approximately a 1 month supply.

I've seen people mention the gel is thick and gums up the ear? If she rubs her arm on it and licks it to try to groom herself, is it harmful? Also, are the chewables tough to chew? She doesn't have many teeth left.

Asked by: Stephanie
Thank you for your question. Ingesting a small amount is not harmful. It is not a soft chew but your pet should be fine if she is able to take other chewable medications.

My cat is supposed to take 2.5 mg, once a day. She wont take pills so i want to use liquid in her food. Is it easy to get 1/2 dose on the food. Does it come with a graduated dropper? I'm assuming an order of 120 mg liquid form will last 48 days?

You will administer 0.5 ml of the methimazole 5mg/ml liquid to achieve a 2.5mg dose. A 120 ml bottle will last 240 days at that dose. A calibrated syringe is provided with the liquid.

My cat was prescribed 2.5mg twice a day of the pill form of Methimazole (so half a pill twice a day, total of 5mg/day). What is the equivalent amount/dose/times per day of transdermal gel?

Asked by: Anonymous
Thanks for your question. The dose of the methimazole transdermal gel would be determined by your veterinarian. We sell the gel in two different concentrations at 50 mg/mL and 100 mg/mL. The veterinarian may prescribe 5 mg twice daily of the transdermal gel. If you purchase the 50 mg/mL bottle, that would mean you would administer 0.1 mL of the gel twice daily.

We compound methimazole in a transdermal gel; not a cream. We offer a 50mg/ml or 100mg/ml concentration in a pre-filled syringe. Your veterinarian can calculate the appropriate dose for your pet's condition.

My cat's script is for 2.5 MG/0.1 ML twice daily as a transdermal application. Could that be provided?

Asked by: Iris
The 50 mg/ml concentration of methimazole transdermal gel that we carry provides 2.5 mg/0.05 ml. You would apply 0.05 ml instead of 0.1 ml to achieve the same 2.5 mg dose. Ask your veterinarian to adjust the prescription accordingly.

Is the transdermal price for a whole month's worth or is that per dose? My cat just got diagnosed with thyroid and she throws up the pill. Vet wants $80 for it per month. What do the chews taste like to them?

Asked by: April
Thank you for your question. That is the price per dose, and depending on how many doses your pet will need, will need to buy multiple. Transdermal means the application of the drug/medication through the skin; therefore, there won't be any taste.

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.
