Subject: Re: Transdermal metronidazole

Dear Bruce,

I must concur with you completely!!! I wish someone would pay to take about
20 or 30 healthy ferrets and apply some transdermal flagyl and test blood
levels. I'm not sure this would even work because that would not even
guarantee that it was penetrating the intestinal lumen. Got an extra $25,000
The only drug i've seen transdermal validated for is tapezole in cats
