Felimazole Tablets 2.5mg
What is Felimazole? Felimazole is for the treatment of hyperthyroidism in cats. It is supplied in 1.25mg, 2.5mg tablets and 5mg tablets and can be sold as individual tablets or packs of 100. Each strength tablet has a different colour sugar coating. The 1.25mg tablets are red, the 2.5mg tablets are pink and the 5mg tablets are orange.
Felimazole Tablets are a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received. Please follow the instructions given by your vet.
The active ingredient in Felimazole is thiamazole. This can cause haemoconcentration and therefore it is important to make sure your cat has access to plenty of drinking water.
What is hyperthyroidism? Hyperthyoidism (also known as overactive thyroid) is a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland begins to produce an excess amount of the thyroid hormone. Cats with hyperthyroidism tend to burn energy too rapidly and this can result in weight loss, despite the increase in appetite. This condition is very common in older cats.
Fortunately, the majority of cats that develop hyperthyroidism can be treated successfully and make a complete recovery.
The most common signs of hyperthyroidism are:
. Weight loss
. Increased appetite
. Increased thirst
. Increased heart rate.
The recommended starting dose for the long term treatment of hyperthyroidism is 5mg per day. The dose can then be split and a 2.5mg tablet can be given twice daily but your Vet will advise on what dosage is most appropriate for your cat.
Do not use in pregnant or lactating cats.
Do not use in cats with a hypersensitivity to thiamazole.
Do not break, split or crush tablets.
Do not handle without gloves if pregnant. Pregnant women should also not handle cat litter unless wearing gloves.

So glad i found Pet Drug Online had everything i wanted and so much more. I will be telling all my friends about it and will use it all the time so much cheeper.
I was amazed at the prices of the products. I am a pensioner and every little helps towards keeping our pets healthy. I will be ordering more products in future.
I knew what I was looking for I found them easily well descripted and a reasonable price they came quickly I was so pleased
The huge savings I have been able to make on prescription medication have prompted me to recommend Pet Drugs Online to all my friends with pet dogs and cats. The web page is easy to navigate and delivery is usually within a couple of days.
The product (Frontline spot-on) from Pet Drugs Online was best priced. I searched the net to obtain the best price and I found Pet Drugs Online. The site was easy to navigate & ordering was straightforward. The only snag was the packaging. The boxes were damaged/dented.
This is one of the quickest sites, from ordering to arrival is amazing 48 hours! The pricing is also very favourable. Personally I don't bother, now to even look at other sites! Thank you.
