Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] Re: Proglycem????

Dear Suki and Sandee: My 7yr old girl has been on Proglycem/Pred 2xdaily
4ml each dosage. Amazing results. Fur lucious...more energy....weight gain
(probably Pred. belly). The combination has been since l year. Before that
just Pred. My vet told me I would probably have to up the doseage if she
got worse. But so good..sigh.

Hugs to your fuzzies. Wendy and Gang
