Just a quick note about the Tritec. It's a good thing it's possible to
swap out other things for it in this protocol. My vet tried to get one of
my fuzzies, Sonic, on this back in November 2000. Word finally was that
it's no longer being made. Below is the e-mail I received from Glaxo's
customer service. If anyone has successfully obtained the stuff since
then, let us know from where. Wonder if a compounding pharmacist could
cook up essentially the same thing easily enough...
