Drs. Little & Gockowski--
Thanks for the levity afforded by your ivory tower espousals--it sure breaks the tedium of dealing with actual problems like laminitis, euthanasia, and heartbreak. A good chuckle is always good for the soul...wait--what is that saying--"Laughter is the best medicine"?--but only if you're licensed to prescribe it in your state, right?
As a veterinary professional with a recently diagnosed PPID horse, I obtain Prascend *at cost* from our distributor and can afford the initial 1mg/day dose, but if my mare's dose increases I am going to buy compounded--Prascend's cost even at wholesale prices borders on ridiculous. I've used many compounded Rxs through the years and have a handful of proven pharmacies that I trust to formulate meds so I am completely comfortable using compounded pergolide. I bluntly told my BI rep this. You gotta do what you gotta do, you know? Well, maybe you don't--the view is rosy from the ivory tower high above the rest of us.
Again, thanks for the chuckle--now back to reality,
