Vidalta Tablets 15mg (Cat) (1 Tablet)
Product Code: 52198
DescriptionVidalta tablets are dark pink coloured tablets that are usually given once daily to control the symptoms of hyperthyroidism in cats. Hyperthyroidism is a condition that tends to affect older cats, often older than 13 years of age, and is caused by an over production of the hormone thyroxine by the thyroid gland.
Vidalta tablets contain carbimazole. After carbimazole is absorbed, it is converted to an active form: methimazole. Methimazole prevents an enzyme that is essential for the production of thyroxine from working.
The tablets can be given with or without food, although administration with food enhances bioavailability. The timing of treatment and its relation to feeding should be kept consistent from day to day.
Do not break or crush Vidalta tablets as this will affect the sustained release property. The aim of treatment is to maintain total thyroxin concentrations (TT4).
Quantity: 1 x 15mg tablet
