Beyond Use Date:
Prescription Methimzaole transdermal gel provides fast, effective, long-term treatment of hyperthyroidism in cats. The gel, mixed for your cat’s specific dosage needs, reduces the amount of thyroid hormone produced in the thyroid gland.
Hyperthyroidism can be a life-long condition that causes a range of uncomfortable symptoms in cats. If your cat is suffering from hyperthyroidism, your veterinarian may prescribe Methimazole. This medication slows hormone production in the thyroid gland and can be used for long-term control of the condition. Exact dosing is critical to successful treatment so we blend the right amount of Methimazole into an easy-to-apply gel just for your cat. Just rub it right into your cat’s skin as directed by your veterinarian.
