What is Methimazole?
Methimazole treats hyperthyroidism in cats, 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.

Methimazole may also be used to protect the kidneys in dogs receiving cisplatin, an anti-cancer drug.

Who is it for?
Dogs and Cats

What are the benefits?

* Controls the symptoms of hyperthyroidism for an improved quality of life
* Treats hyperthyroidism without surgery or anesthesia
* Affordable per-tablet price!

How does Methimazole work?
Methimazole reduces the amount of thyroid hormone produced by the thyroid gland.

How is it given?
Methimazole tablets are given by mouth. The tablet form is very bitter, and it may be difficult to administer. Use a "pill pocket" treat or hide it in your pet's favorite treat. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact 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.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
In most cases methimazole will lower the level of thyroid hormone in hyperthyroid cats. It will generally take 1-3 weeks before the level of thyroid hormone produced by the body will start to decrease. Methimazole will not cure the disease, but will usually control it if given for the rest of the cat's life.

What form(s) does it come in?
