What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Mirataz is a prescription cat weight loss prevention prescribed to help cats who are chronically underweight for any number of medical reasons. It is the first FDA-approved medication for management of weight loss in cats and it quickly and effectively stimulates the cat's appetite. Plus many pet owners like how it is administered as an ointment rather than orally. Mirataz for cats is applied topically to the ears and within a few weeks of regular application you will likely find your cat is eating enough to begin gaining some of the weight back. 

You can buy Mirataz with a prescription, and your best price on it will be when your order pet medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


Standard Mirataz for cats dosage is application of a 1.5" ribbon of the ointment on the inner pinna of the cat's ear once each day for 14 days. Successive usages of the medication should be done only if approved by a veterinarian.

Cat owners should wear gloves and wash hands after application


The active ingredient in Mirataz is Mirtazapine
