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.

My 17 year old cat got seriously depressed after our dog died last year. They had grown up together and my cat was obsessed with her. So my cat didn't really want to eat much and that made it hard to get her medicine in her...she has pancreatitis and needs her meds to help with that. My vet suggested Mirataz and after just a couple applications, my cat was more active again and loving like she was before. Plus she was devouring food! It was amazing.
This product has been so important for my senior cat. His appetite has really decreased in his old age as he's got a slew of conditions like IBD, diabetes, kidney disease, etc. This really helps him eat more regularly and the dose is easily adjustable based on how he's doing. I always use a glove to apply it, and he really enjoys the ear massage. It's nice to not have to administer yet another pill. Thanks, Chewy!
Great product for treating loss of appetite
My 17 year old ginger cat has a chronic case of pancreatitis and loses his appetite and is reluctant to eat. My vet recommended this Mirataz transdermal to stimulate the appetite and ease nausea and discomfort and it works well. Although Leo doesn't like me touching his ears or anything else he is easily medicated using a little finger cap which I apply medicine to and stick in his ear and massage the upper part of ear while he is sitting on couch.
Easy to measure, Easy to apply
I really like this Mirataz ointment for my cat. It's so much easier than using syringes to administer the medicine. It's easy to measure by turning the dial until it clicks, easy to apply with one hand while holding ear in the other and you can readily see how much is left in the tube.
Waste Of Money
My Vet recommended this because my 16 yr. cat's appetite has declined. She is on her 4th dose. It has done Absolutely nothing! Even dry food(which by the way she loves) she isn't interested in. I've given her many food options wet and dry and no interest. I didn't expect a Miricale but I did expect something, at least a little bit of eating.
When prescribed by your vet, of course. This medication is easy for arthritic fingers to apply to a cat's ear even when usually the feline will have none of it. The RX works very well to stimulate the flagging feline appetite when even albacore tuna won't work!
This has worked ok for our other cat's appetite issues short term in the past, just enough to get him to eat a tiny bit and avoid going into liver failure before having his underlying issues treated. Unfortunately this medication did not arrive in time for the cat we needed it for so I'm not sure whether or not it could have made a difference. The package arrived just as I was heading out the door to his euthanasia appointment. His vet was only able to offer several mail in prescription options. We figured it was worth a shot just in case but he deteriorated quickly. Likely worth trying if your cat has a short term appetite issue and you are exploring a cause and alternative longer term remedy.
I was paying over twice the amount for this med at the vets. I thought I’d try chewy out since their prices we so good. The whole experience was seamless and great service. I will Definitely use them again and recommend to my friends
Although Mirataz for cats is on the expensive side. It does work! My kitty was not eating and losing weight. What she did eat she usually vomited up. After a trip to the Vet, bloodwork, etc..she was put on a few meds. Turned out she has Hypothyroid disease as well as intestinal digestive issues. Since being on the Mirataz and a few other meds she is a different kitty! She has been eating, keeping it down and within a few months gained 3 pounds! She is now a different kitty. Eating, cuddling, playing and generally interested and curious about people and objects again. Highly recommend this product.
I have a sick kitty (kidney issues) we literally thought he was going to die. He was prescribed trans dermal mirtazapine (he HATES taking medicine) which is super easy to administer and it literally was a game changer. Many of his issues came from him not eating enough and now he's ravenous. I went to every other day dosing and it has been an incredible addition to his treatment.....probably helped in saving his life.
