Hi Tony,

I don't have any advice to give but do have a couple of questions about Deslorelin. I have followed your updates on Sugar's progress.

My vet has ordered some from Australia and it should be here soon. Quite the process - he had to get approval from the Canadian government to import it - so all that took a while. But its on its way now!

Where you told how long it would last, that is, when would she need to have another implant? My vet thinks that it lasts anywhere from one to two years.

The other question I had was whether you were giving her Melatonin as well?

And anything else I should be aware of about the Deslorelin. My vet also said the needle is quite large and he is opting to mildly sedate before injecting.
