Hi Tony and Tressie
Your question about "how long it last" needs more info.
What size implant are you using? It currently comes in
2 sizes a 4.7 mg and a 9.4 mg. There used to be a 3 mg
size also. The one article on Deslorelin (Suprelorin) came out
4 years ago. Dr Wagner form the U of Pitt used the 3 mg
implant in that study. It controlled the disease for 8.5 months
to 20.5 months. The 4.7 mg should last for slightly longer (ie
at least 12 months), but there has been no published data to
say for sure how long it can control adrenal gland disease.
If you use the 4.7mg implant then roughly every 12 months
but keep a close eye on them after 8 months for any signs
of adrenal gland disease returning.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
