Methimazole Transdermal Gel: Compounded methimazole may be prescribed to treat hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) in pets. Methimazole Transdermal Gel is now dispensed and administered with TICKERmini®. This easy-to-use, and easy-to-dose transdermal applicator simplifies dosing while empowering pet-parents with the right, “touch free” applicator for rubbing the gel directly onto the skin of your pet. Depending on the prescribed concentration, your doctor or pharmacist may instruct you to dial, One CLICK (1.25 mg) or Two CLICKS (2.5mg) to dispense the exact amount. Other concentrations are also commonly prescribed with methimazole transdermal gel when packaged with TICKERmini, and the volumetric dosage may range between One CLICK (0.05mL) to Four CLICKS (0.2mL).
With TICKERmini, the transdermal route is the solution to problems associated with distasteful oral and painful injectable administration. TICKERmini is ideal for dispensing nearly all transdermal gels, creams, and ointments prepared by compounding pharmacies and outsourcing facilities that rely on precision, accuracy, and ease of use.
Always ask your veterinarian if a medicated transdermal gel, cream, or ointment is the most appropriate treatment for your pet.
