Always check meds!

I've been giving Oksana medication daily now for several months, for her idopathic cystis. *knock on wood* she hasn't had a major episode for a long time now and I'm hoping it's because of these meds. The vets office calls in the Rx for me and it comes to me from a pharmacy in Arizona that specilizes in compound medications. This is taking a medication and making it into an easier way to give it to them, in Oksana's case it's a cream I put inside her earlobe once or twice a day.

So I got a new delivery on Saturday. I finished the last of the previous syringe yesterday and in the evening I was about to give her one of the new batches and I noticed the label on the syringe was different than the medication she uses. I didn't give her any and called this morning. Thank goodness, because it turns out, they sent me the wrong stuff! They sent me something for a thyroid condition!

Now I've got 6 syringes with some cream called Methimazole. I'd love to be able to give it to someone who already uses it. But I don't think any of the kitties here uses this stuff, and I don't know if it would get through customs. I'm going to see if maybe my vets office has anyone who might need it. It would be a shame to just throw it away.

Thankfully, I'm getting Oksana's meds over-nighted to me. From now on, I'll make sure to look at all the syringes!

Sure glad you noticed before using it for Oksana.

I hope the pharmacy isn't charging you for it twice.

I don't even want to think what might have happened. It may have done nothing to her, but it may have made her sick!

No, they aren't charging me. Heck, it was their mistake!

I can't believe they did that. Can you imagine?
