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.
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.
This is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received.

Very good service, can't find fault, any problems are quickly dealt with.
Wouldn't change to any body else.
Keep up the good work.
Very user friendly website and when I called I spoke to a very helpful member of staff. The delivery was prompt and arrived in good condition. Have used them before and will use them again.
Items arrived on time, packed well. Having to sort out a prescription was easy after contacting a team member. Will use again and will recommend Pet Drugs Online to family and friends
Pet drugs are very good they are very quick to get your order to you and most important they are very cheap .l have recommended them to all my friends who have pets . All l can say is l will continue to be a customer as very satisfied . Well done pet drugs online.
I would thoroughly recommend Pet Drugs Online. The products I bought for my cat and dog were cheaper than at the vets and they arrived very quickly. I have bought from them before and will certainly do so again.
I ordered eye ointment for my dog. It was an easy process, I sent a vets prescription and they promptly sent the goods to me. It was much cheaper than getting it from my vet and it was exactly the same product. I would definately buy from them again.
Promised delivery next day which was a Friday. We waited in all day but delivery didn't arrive. I phoned customer services early Saturday to ask when it would be delivered and she promised she would phone me back but she didn't. We were going on holiday on the Monday and were concerned
food would not arrive before we left, but it did just. We found this all very disappointing and stressful.
