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.

Important Medicine

My cat has been prescribed Mirataz to help stimulate her appetite. It really has made a significant difference! She eats, drinks water and goes potty like clockwork when receiving this medication. When she is not on it - her daily routine nearly comes to a halt. We have used the medicine long enough to know that it does not have to be daily administered but that she needs to be on it going forward and can receive it (under her vets' care - of course) on an as needed basis. I am thankful Chewy.com carries this product!

Great Product, but...

Have been using this since vet prescribed some time ago, and use it periodically as needed. Helps with vomiting. Chewy has the best price, and ordering was easy and delivery prompt. However, this is the first time ordering thru Chewy, and product was watery, though expiration date was OK. Whenever obtained thru vet, product had a stable, gel-type consistency. I don't know if effectiveness was compromised on this order, didn't seem to work as well.

Super when a kitty won't eat

I've used this before when a kitty is under the weather and won't eat for a couple of days. Works like a charm and Chewy's price is half of what my vet wants. Thank you so much for helping us get what our furballs need at a reasonable cost! Love Chewy!!

Works but caused diarrhea

This works really well, but it gave my cat diarrhea. I've seen a few vets and they didn't believe me because they said it isn't a common side effect. I saw a new vet and they thought it might be the food and that he might not need a kidney diet as long as I was giving him fluids, so I started him on senior food with low protein and stopped the Mirataz. His bowel movements became solid again. He wasn't eating very much so I thought I'd try the Mirataz again. As soon as I did, it caused diarrhea the next day. I'll be looking for another way to stimulate his appetite.

Miracle drug

My Veterinarian prescribed Mirataz for my 15 y/o cat Niko. He suffers from stage 3 renal disease and stomach issues. He stopped eating regularly due to the disease. I've been using Mirataz for several months. I apply the cream to Niko's ear with a glove. (I alternate his ears.) I only give him the medicine when I see his appetite decreasing - so the med is used as an as needed basis. Usually once every 7 days I apply the medicine to his inner ear. It works like a charm. Usually by the next day Niko's appetite returns and he winds up consuming a lot of food. I am so grateful for this medication - as I feel it's keeping my Niko alive. Not sure how the meds work but it does significantly improves his desire to eat. He has been able to keep his weight on (13.8 pounds because of it.) It really is life-saving. Celebrating his 15 birthday was so meaningful to us ! Not sure what would have happened without it. Praying for more years for our guy.

Literally Life Saving

My 12-year-old cat stopped eating after becoming diabetic with some complications. Then he stopped allowing himself to be force fed. A newer appetite stimulant my vet recommended made him froth at the mouth, and he hated the taste and fought being dosed by mouth. Friends assured me mirataz had worked wonders in their cats, so I tried it instead. So much easier to administer and best of all, much to my relief, my boy started eating again & having energy. He was mere steps away from euthanasia at one point to keep him from slowly starving to death, but this literally saved his life.

Mirataz ointment

I've been using this product on my for less than a week. It's too soon to rate its effectiveness. I will update my review after using 30 days.

easy to apply!

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.

Helped save my cat

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.
