Subject: [ferrethealth] Re:Has anyone else had a problem with the melatonin implant?

Hi Becky
I have used close to 1,000 melatonin implants and have not
seen an allergic reaction or anything like your ferret's experience
from the melatonin implants.
As you and your vet should know, the implants do not dissolve
(ie once they are implanted the implant remains there for the rest of
the ferret's life), and you do not have to remove the old implants.
It is also unlikely to have an allergic reaction to melatonin. If your
is allergic to melatonin it would have an allergic reaction every night
it naturally makes its own melatonin. Likewise it would have an allergic
reaction everytime you give the melatonin tablet.
The 62 mile car ride, the 2 hour visit to your mom's house, a vaccine, or
something else is the likely cause for Snowball's problem and not an
reaction to melatonin.
Hope that helps clear things up,
Jerry Murray, DVM
