Vidalta®/ Vidalta® Vet
Vidalta®/ Vidalta® Vet is a prolonged-release oral tablet for the once daily treatment of hyperthyroidism in cats.
Carbimazole is a prodrug that is converted completely to its active metabolite thiamazole (methimazole) in vivo. Thiamazole is an anti-thyroid agent that interferes with the synthesis and production of thyroid hormones by inhibiting thyroid peroxidase-catalyzed reactions, in a dose-dependent manner.
Use of Vidalta®/ Vidalta® Vet
Vidalta®/ Vidalta® Vet can be used for the long term medical management of hyperthyroid cats and to stabilize hyperthyroid cats in preparation for surgical thyroidectomy or radioiodine therapy. The once daily starting and maintenance dosing regimen helps to improve client compliance.
