Subject: [ferrethealth] Again about ‘Deslorelin‘ a killing drug?

I found this statement in the archives:

For those of you with ferrets treated with deslorelin implants it is important to remember that several papers published all say that on on recurrence of symptoms (after the implant effective time has expired) then the disease reasserts itself very quickly and the incidence of tumour growth (whether previously seen of not) seems to be much greater and progresses rapidly.
" Unquote

Is this true? Activates the disease... or it makes it grows faster? If so... this is not so good or neither it is a helping solution then. Once you give it to your ferret it gives a 50 % change for the disease?
More info about this please...
Regards and thank you.

[It's a matter of control being lost,
so what would have happened
quickly before if you had not
treated now does so.

I think that you found a statement
which can be read in multiple ways,
that's all, and I do not know where
you got the 50% from.

That quote might have been in
a reply that I got when Mornie's
carcinoma reasserted itself. At the
time we did not know that the
advice for timing if carcinoma is
present was about to change. She
would have gone at any time when
her carcinoma first presented
symptoms. Instead, with the
Suprelorin implant she got 8 months
which was a real gift.
