Re: Transitioning from prascend to compounded pergolide
I started Scotty with a liquid compounded Pergolide, and after nearly a year of not seeing a lot, discovered that was probably a mistake. There are a lot of files here, including some of mine, that state how the liquid compounded versions do not hold their potency. Who would have known? I have since informed my vet. We now use Pet Health Pharmacy and he is getting 4 mg pergolide which actually equals about 3 mg Prascend, and he is doing well. I get the capsules, and after trial and error making sure they are consumed, I just stick one way back in the corner of his cheek, hold my hands over his face/teeth, and wait for it to go down. Otherwise, he got so he wouldn't even take a treat from me because I had meds mixed in.
