Hi again Tina,

First, I must advise you that this is an advice/information based site. As we cannot see people's pets in person to examine them, we cannot legally write prescriptions for pets here. So, in regards ***** ***** thyroid medications like Felimazole or Vidalta, these cannot be procured via this website.

That said, you can purchas these medications online for your cat, if your vet writes you a prescription. There are a range of online pharmacies that can offer these products cheaper then practice can, but legal requirements mean that the vet writing the prescription must have examined your cat in person within the past 6-12 months.

I will leave this as an "info request" so that you are not charged since you request is not a service that can be legally provided by this website.

Take care,
Dr. B.
