Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Flutamide

My ferret oliver is on flutimide for prostate
enlargement. I believe he is about 1400 grams? and his
dosage was 2x daily at .75 ml. After 1 1/2 months we
give .75 ml 1x daily. We were concerned that maybe
there was to much sluffing from his prostate occuring
thus blocking him from peeing so we went to 1x daily
and he is (knock on wood) doing great! Good Luck,
Deidre and the kids!
