Mirataz (mirtazapine) Transdermal Ointment for Cats

Mirataz, mirtazapine, is a prescription appetite stimulant for cats. Mirtazapine is an antidepressant type medication that increases appetite, supports weight gain, and may reduce vomiting. It is prescribed by veterinarians to control undesired weight loss in cats with underlying conditions including kidney, dental, or gastrointestinal diseases. Mirataz transdermal gel is applied topically to the inner side of the cat’s earlobe, using a gloved finger, where it absorbs through the skin into the bloodstream. Available in a 5gm ointment.

  • Protective finger cots or examination gloves should be worn when applying transdermal gels.
  • Read and follow the prescription label carefully for storage information, possible side effects, and drug interactions.
  • Give the exact amount prescribed and only as often as directed.
  • Do not skip doses or stop giving the medication without consulting your veterinarian.
