Weight loss in cats may be an indicator of something more serious. Changes in your cat's appetite, and accompanying weight loss, can be early indicators or underlying diseases such as thyroid, kidney and inflammatory bowel disease. Mirataz (mirtazapine transdermal ointment) is the first and only FDA-approved transdermal medication for the management of weight loss in cats, and can help your cat gain weight. Miratz is a transdermal ointment applied to the inside of your cat's ear. See your veterinarian if you notice symptoms of weight or appetite loss.

This product, along with Elura, really worked to get my cat to eat again. It took a few weeks though, but we persisted and gave both meds to her every day. She finally started eating again and is slowly gaining her weight back.
I have a 14 year old kitty that was partly saved by this product. I was moving, and my cat was very stressed due to the changing environment and having to temporarily share the living space with another young male cat who was a bit of a bully. She lost a ton of weight and dropped to only 6.8 lbs. It was very frightening and I couldn't get her to eat, so while relocating to a new living arrangement I applied the ointment. It's easy to use and worked on her appetite immediately. She ate like she had the munchies and gained several pounds during the final phase of the move. Granted, getting away from her bully and into a new space also helped her stress, but this stimulant also very much contributed. If your cat is healthy enough and you have tried other foods and exhausted your options, I would highly reccomend trying this. She is ow over 9 lbs and approaching 10, so I am hoping to continue her progress now that she has stopped taking the medication.
This helped my elderly cat stop losing weight and start gaining weight. After using for several months, she started losing fur on the back of her ears. My vet's tech suggested to wipe off the prior day's application when you apply to the other ear (you should alternate ears every other day).
I have an old sick cat that frequently stops eating. This ointment in the ear helps him start eating again. Highly recommend
Chewy service is great. I place my order and it arrives at my house. I never have to worry.
Lizzie, our kitty, is in end stage renal disease. This medication is very easy to apply, just rub it into one of her ears, alternating. This is allowing for her to eat more as she is so skinny due to the disease process and giving us more quality lap time.
Mirataz has help d improve my 15 year old Siamese cats appetite. A miracle drug prescribed by our Vet. Easy to apply , stimulates cats appetite within 3 hours and lasts for sometime.
I have a senior cat who has not been eating well. My vet recommended that I try Mirataz and it has worked well. It is easy to apply—he spits out pills and medicine—so the transdermal application is good. I switch ears each day and clean the alternate ear with cat wipes.
Really worked on my cat getting her appetite back.
My vet had Mirataz on back order and I didn't want to wait for it. Getting Rx products from Chewy is fast and easy. Chewy does all the work. Mirataz helps my 16-year-old cat keep her weight on. It is easy to smear in her ear and then the next day she definitely eats more.
