Transdermal medication to manage feline weight loss
Mirataz (mirtazapine ointment) is a transdermal medication specifically developed and FDA-approved to manage undesired weight loss in cats-a leading cause of visits to the veterinarian. Mirataz, which is formulated with KindredBio's proprietary Accusorb technology, is applied topically to the cat's inner ear (pinna) once a day, providing a more convenient application route than oral administration.

The Prestige line of influenza vaccines offers the next generation equine influenza protection. It meets current World Organization for Animal Health and American Association of Equine Practitioners guidelines for clade 1 and clade 2 strains. Influenza vaccination is recommended at six-month intervals for any performance, show or pleasure horses at risk of exposure, including resident horses exposed to traveling horses.
