Abstract:  Transdermal medications are a desirable route of administration for feline patients. However, before compounding, pharmacists and veterinarians should critically evaluate if the medication is appropriate for administration via the transdermal route. This article discusses points to consider regarding transdermal therapy. Tables summarizing the current literature and medications that should never be used transdermally are included.
