Product Summary:

Methimazole Tablets 
 
Cats:
Methimazole reduces the amount of thyroid hormone produced by the body. It is used to treat hyperthyroidism, a condition in which too much thyroid hormone is produced. It will not cure the disease, but will usually control it if given for the rest of the cat’s life.

Dogs:
Methimazole may be used to protect the kidneys in dogs receiving cisplatin, an anti-cancer drug.
 
Dose and Administration:
Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Methimazole in tablet form is very bitter, and it may be difficult to administer. Compounding pharmacies can make a flavored oral liquid form or transdermal (topical) gel, which may be easier to give. Do not split or crush Felimazole tablets. If using the transdermal gel, apply to the skin as directed by your veterinarian. Blood levels of thyroid hormone will be checked by your veterinarian at regular intervals, and the dose increased or decreased as needed. The lowest effective dose should be used. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give 2 doses at once. This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.
 
Possible Side Effects:
Side effects tend to occur in the first three months of treatment. If you observe any of the effects listed below, contact your veterinarian immediately. May see loss of appetite, vomiting, lethargy or abnormal vocalization. These usually occur within the first two weeks of treatment and may stop even with continuation of treatment. Less common side effects include liver problems resulting in the above signs plus yellowing of the gums, skin, or eyes; skin lesions or itching of the face, resulting in scratching; bleeding tendencies; swollen lymph nodes; anemia; or low white blood cell counts. Your veterinarian will determine if these effects necessitate stopping the medication and treating with surgery or radioactive iodine therapy. Treatment with methimazole may unmask hidden kidney disease. If your pet is unusually tired, has a fever (temperature over 103°F), or shows signs of bruising or bleeding, contact your veterinarian immediately. If your pet experiences an allergic reaction to the medication, signs may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, or coma. If you observe any of these signs, contact your veterinarian immediately.
 
Precautions:
Not for use in pets who are hypersensitive (allergic) to it. Use with extreme caution in pets with anemia, clotting disorders, bleeding, low white cell and platelet counts, or diseases of the immune system, liver, or kidney. May cause birth defects. Do not use in pregnant or lactating animals (females nursing their young). In addition to monitoring of thyroid hormone levels, laboratory tests to check liver and kidney function, and blood cell counts may be performed before starting treatment and then regularly hereafter.
 
Storage:
Refrigerate oral suspension. Store other forms at room temperature in a tightly closed container protected from light.

It dissolves fast in water which makes giving it to my cats in wet food super easy! I was originally prescribed Felimozole, but that has a coating and it's a pain to crush it with a fork. Not to mention a pain for any pet sitters!
