Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] diazoxide and proglycem-same

Proglycem and diazoxide are the same thing. I live in Toronto
so this may not help you much, but the way my vet got it was
through the pharmacy of a hospital here that treats cancer.
We then had to send it to a local pharmacy to have
reformulated. It is very expensive, but the results that I
had from it were well worth it.
Has your vet tried a hospital where they treat cancer?
By the way we had trouble getting the dosing even for
children, so were stuck getting the pills in adult form as
time was running out. Hemingway had really gone down hill.
Good luck,

Hello, I just took Stinky in for his BG test this morning
being on Pediapred for two weeks and his level has only gone
from 2.3
to 2.6. Not very good. But he is a lot more active. The
vet says
she wants to put him on Diazoxide but she can't get it here
and is
having it courriered from Toronto. I live in Vancouver.
That seems
odd to me. Anyway I was wondering if Proglycem is the same
thing and
maybe she just doesn't know it by that name and maybe we
could find
it here. From the posts i've read it's really expensive and
courrier costs isn't going to help. Any information would
be greatly
appreciated. Thank you Ellen
