Transdermal gels serve as an alternative to giving medications orally. A small amount of gel containing medication is rubbed into the hairless area on the inside of the animals ear. The medication is then absorbed through the skin and works in the same way if given orally. For pets who are not eating, have difficulty swallowing, or otherwise refuse oral medications, transdermal drug delivery results in improved patient compliance and ease of use for pet owners. While we have had success with a number of drugs used in a transdermal form, not all medications may be given by this route.
Our pharmacists are available to assist in determining if a drug is suitable for transdermal delivery.
