Methimazole Tablets

Cats that produce too much thyroid hormone, a condition called hyperthyroidism, may need medication to balance their system and feel better. Your veterinarian may prescribe Methimazole, which reduces hormone production in the thyroid so your cat feels better.  

  • Treats hyperthyroidism in cats
  • Few side effects
  • Affordable treatment option

 

Hyperthyroidism can be a lifelong condition in cats causing weight loss, hyperactivity, and shedding. The condition is caused by an overactive thyroid gland producing excess hormones. Prescription Methimazole works by slowing hormone production in the thyroid gland. This affordable medicine works quickly and can be given throughout your cat’s lifetime to help her enjoy a better quality life.

  • Q:

    can I order Methimazole without a vet's prescription?
    Asked on 10/2/2013 by david

    1 answer

    • A:

      David,

      No, Methimazole is a prescription medication, so legally, it requires veterinarian approval before we can dispense it.  We can obtain approval from your dog's veterinarian in a couple of different ways - once an order is placed, we can fax your veterinarian for approval and they can fax back with the doctor's signature and the directions for use (by far the most common and the fastest method), or once we fax the clinic can call and verbally approve a prescription (some clinics prefer this method).  We can also accept prescriptions written by the veterinarian that you can then mail to us, with your current order number written on the outside of the envelope.

       

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Do I need to worry? Wrong cat was given 1 dose of 2.5mg.
    Asked on 9/13/2013 by Vickie

    1 answer

    • A:

      Vickie,

      Methimazole should be eliminated from your cat within a day.  The drug usually takes up to 2-4 weeks to achieve maximum effect of the drug so one dose is unlikely to cause much harm.  If you have concerns about your cat, please contact your pet's veterinarian for further evaluation.

      Thank you,

Comments about Heritage Methimazole Tablets:

The service I get from Vetrxdirect has always been good. However, this time the generic drug, which I have used for my cat for many years, must have come from a different manufacturer and while the pills are scored, they are so thick and the score line is so shallow that I have to use a pill cutter to cut them in half. I used to always be able to break them, which is much more convenient. I'm sure this is an easy fix by the manufacturer if someone would just point it out to them, so I hope Vetrxdirect will do that.

Timiliness and accuracy

By 

from Georgetown ME

Comments about Heritage Methimazole Tablets:

For each of the prescriptions, they have been received in a timely and accurate manner. This is critical because of the process of having to get a prescription from the doctor. They are hesitant to put too many refills on it which is not your concern.

The comparison in cost of purchasing the same medication from our vet is large. We appreciate the savings. I wish we could get a longer dosage period, 3 months vs the one or two months from the vet.

Looking forward to continuing business with you.
Our cat also enjoys the treats you have included with the product.

Comments about Heritage Methimazole Tablets:

Hi. I bought these pills for less than half price when compared to the Vet's pills. They work as good as the Vet's ones... The only difference that I could find is that they are harder to cut in half. It can be a little messy. It would be awesome if it could be improved. Thank you.

Comments about Heritage Methimazole Tablets:

This tablet form of Methimazole is easy to crush and mix in wet canned cat food. Our cat takes it with no issues. Since she never had wet food before, she thinks she's getting a treat!
