That is when we have tried using it through the years
as well as when heart disease was present to try to
hold down the Pred dosing. We did have some it helped

I think there is someone who posted sometime in
perhaps the last three years whose ferret was treated
successfully at least for a while with just diazoxide
but I can't recall details. What I remember was being
