Hello Ursula.

I hope you are safe and well. The data using it topically in animals is obviously lacking but I would use it in the same way as they do in humans by soaking a swab in the injectable form. Some of this will be absorbed, but not all. With topical applications like this I would always calculate the dose I am applying topically, this is obviously more important for drugs like lidocaine.

You can definitely use TXA in cats, it is just less commonly reported. I would still use 10-15mg/kg q8-12 hours.

Do you mean using it in cases of feline cystitis?

Thanks again.

Scott 🙂
