Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hell. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. Cats tend to tolerate this medication very well. I would probably give less of a dosage, though. I usually give 1/4 of the tablet every 3 days. In the most recent veterinary drug handbook that has come out, though, it now says that mirtazapine can be given daily to every other day in some cats if the every 3 days isn't working. That information is brand new, so I haven't tried it yet but will still be starting on 3.75 mg every 72 hours for now. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
I am sorry. I am not set up to do phone calls. I can opt out to see if there is another expert online that can fulfill that request. That wait can be very long, though. We can still continue the conversation online if you would like, though.
I am not sure why the negative rating was given. If you want another expert to fulfill the phone call request, they will be less likely to do so with a negative rating already on there.
