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.

Very good service identical drugs half the price cannot fault it very pleased with our experience to date.
I didn't know that food and treats were packaged separately but after a quick phone call the problem was sorted out. Very helpful office staff.
I have a very elderly cat - 18 - and a year ago she became very thin and couldnt keep anything down. The vet recommended trying Royal Canin Feline Sensitive wet food and it literally saved her life! I immediately started buying it from Pet Drugs online and it brought her back to full health within a month or two and even a year on she's extremely well for 18 and her joints are so much better - she can once again jump up on a chair and tear around like a kitten. To me this proves how much rubbish there is in other cat food products. Pet Drugs online supply high quality foods. I now regularly buy the Royal Canin wet food in packs of 48 from Pet Drugs online who give a fantastic service - speedy delivery and much cheaper than buying from the vet!
Brilliant company..always affordable prices..staff always ready to help with any queries..do recommend to other doggie walkers
