Could you please expound on this a bit? Are you saying that proglycem
doesn't work well - period - or just when the pred dosage has been
maxed out first? If the latter, would it be better to start on
proglycem first?

In spite of my multitudes of ferrets, I just haven't had that much
experience with insulinoma. We have been using proglycem first and
add pred only if necessary. That has worked well to date but am open
to other alternatives.
