Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was getting my cat's thiroid medicine from a local pharmacy. It is cheaper with pet meds and the thing I like best is it is a smaller tablet so I don't have to break it in half and force 2 down her. Make it much better. Giving a cat a pill is not easy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my first time ordering from Pet Meds. I am very pleased with how easy it was to order and how quickly I received the medication. Also the difference in price. There is roughly a 100% mark up when purchasing from the Vet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price My 12 year old Siamese is on a low dose daily for thyroid issues. Have found a significant change after a few weeks on methimazole. Much cheaper here than the local pharmacies and vet office. Can have side effects, but at this once daily dosin, kitty has so far been spared. It's been about 3 months.

What is Methimazole?

Methimazole is used to treat hyperthyroidism in cats. Methimazole is used to treat overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). It is also used before thyroid surgery or radioactive iodine treatment. It has largely replaced propylthiouracil in this treatment process since it has a lower incidence of adverse side effects. Methimazole requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per tablet.

For:

Cats

Benefits:

  • Effectively treats hyperthyroidism in cats
  • Rapid results
  • Affordably sold per tablet

How does Methimazole 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 animals. Do not give your pet a live vaccine while giving methimazole. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops signs of an infection.

Brand Name:

Tapazole (Jones)

Generic Name:

Methimazole

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Methimazole to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has an allergy to methimazole or if your pet has liver disease, a blood cell disorder, or a weak immune system. Tell your veterinarian if the pet is pregnant or nursing. Inform your veterinarian of any other medications, including vitamins and supplements your pet may be taking while receiving methimazole.

What is the most important information I should know about Methimazole?

Methimazole is a prescription medication not FDA approved for veterinary use; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use this medication in cats. Methimazole is available as a 5mg scored tablet. The usual initial dose for cats is 5mg every 8 to 12 hours. Do not give methimazole to pregnant or nursing animals. Methimazole can increase the risk of bleeding. Methimazole can lower the blood cells that help fight infections. Your veterinarian will need to give blood tests on a regular basis to be sure these blood cells do not get too low. Do not give the pet a "live" vaccine while the pet is taking methimazole. Methimazole is needed for the life of the pet. If the medication is stopped, the symptoms will reappear.

How should Methimazole be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Do not give in larger amounts, or give it for longer than recommended by your veterinarian. Follow the directions on the prescription label. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Methimazole can be given with or without food. Allow plenty of water for the pet to drink. Store methimazole at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What are the possible side effects of Methimazole?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving methimazole and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips; tongue or face; hives). Stop giving methimazole and contact your veterinarian at once if your pet develops any of these serious side effects; fever, chills, body aches; easy bruising or bleeding, unusual weakness; blood in the urine or stools; severe blistering, peeling, and skin rash; nausea, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, jaundice. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving methimazole and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences headache, drowsiness, dizziness; mild nausea, or vomiting; itching; muscle, joint, or nerve pain; swelling; hair loss. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Methimazole?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What should I avoid while giving Methimazole to my pet?
