Methimazole is an antithyroid agent that may be prescribed for hyperthyroidism. Methimazole Compounded transdermal comes in a Topi-CLICK Micro transdermal pen to more accurately administer medications made specifically for your pet.
We've been managing my cat's hyperthyroid through transdermal methimazole for the last few years. We have access to a local compounding pharmacy but chewy's prices were more affordable and they delivered. We've learned that you get what you pay for. The difference is night and day and it's really concerning. My cat has behavior issues on chewy methimazole just like he did before his thyroid was managed. He doesn't sleep (he yowls all night instead), vomits frequently, and sheds excessively. We switched back to the local pharmacy and he's back to his proper health. I've since learned that vets advise against using chewy pharmacy because of quality concerns. I would not recommend this product.
Our indoor only cat, Pixie, was losing weight and had lost her sparkle. We thought it was her age at 13. Then found out it was her thyroid. This medicine is a game changer. 2 years later she is her sassy self climbing bookshelves. No pills shoving down her throat just dab it on right ear in am and left ear in pm. So worth the money to keep her around. The tube lasts me about 33 days.
After trying pills in pockets of his favorite treat with no luck. I smashed pills and mixed them with food, cat milk, and tuna with no luck getting him to take his medication. Getting liquid drops down his throat was not fun for him or me. I decided to give the ear cream a try. He at least lets me give it to him. The cost is expensive and I may not be able to continue this treatment but for now I am greatful.
it is easy to apply. My male cat is 14 years old and after using for one week noticed it has affected his appetite and also taste buds. Will continue to apply for the remainder of 3 weeks and then have his blood work done again to see if there is any progress.
I've ordered products from Chewy for a number of years and been very happy with the process and products. Our cat cannot take oral meds and it was wonderful to be able to order a transdermal alternative. It also arrived within a few days which was so helpful.
I saw an improvement in his sleep. He is still loosing weight but I can see a well being in his behavior.Thank you to send the medicine on time. I apply the medicine on a q-tips and apply it on the inside of the ear. Right for the night.
...they were wonderful...the turn-around time was fantastic! However, we only applied it for 6 days when he began having reactions (constant diarrhea, blood/maroon-colored inner-ears), so i'm no longer using it...he's NOT a pill-taker and i'm afraid to try the liquid in his food after this reaction, so we're adjusting his diet and following up with his Vet...
I love the way the dispenser works. The rounded tip was comfortable for my cat. Unfortunately, she doesn’t tolerate the medication. We had to go back to the veterinarian supplied medication.
I have a pretty busy work week and having to coax my cat to eat her tapazole chewables would take at least 5 minutes a chew. The transdermal tapazole is much easier because I just have to cuddle my cat and wet the hairless part of her inner ear with the medicine, takes 1 minute tops.
This makes giving my cat her medicine so much easier. Combined with a cuddle she does not mind it at all. Prior to this we would crush her pills into her food. We could never be sure she got all her medicine or that our other cat was eating it. The compounde Methimazole is easy to apply in her ear.
