Lupron® is so new that no one yet knows the lowest dosage we can use to
reverse all symptoms. The dosage I have found to be the most effective so
far is 2000/mcg (2/mg) of the 4-month depot, or 500/mcg of the 1-month
Again, you can have your veterinarian buy a 1-ferret dose of the 4-month
Lupron® depot from Professional Arts Pharmacy. The telephone number is
1-800-832-9285. There may be other pharmacies that offer this service but
this is the one with which I’ve worked.

My personal question is how many mg are in the 4 month Lupron? 8 mg total?
or more? just curious.....
