Have your vet call Professional Arts Pharmacy at 1-800-832-9285. They
offer the 4 month Lupron in at least 1 mg and 2 mg dosages. 1 mg
works well in the majority of cases and is obviously half the price
of the 2 mg dose. Last I checked, they charge about $100 for the 1 mg
dose. It comes with two vials. One is the drug in powder form and
the other is the solution to mix it with to make it injectable. As
far as I know, storage time is not a concern until it's mixed. Your
vet should mix it just prior to injecting it.

This... will take you right to
Avecon's page on the ELISA test. Details are there. Or, you can go
with the CEP test from United Vaccine (1-800-283-6465). There's also
a quick test from Avecon. Personally, I'd go with United's test,
but it may be more expensive.
