Re: Is anyone in the UK using Invokana

No, it's not licensed but neither was pergolide until a few years ago. It's perfectly legal to prescribed a drug being used in humans if there is no veterinary alternative. Invokana is approved for human use in the UK. You are supposed to be informed of risks and to sign a consent form.
BTW, metformin isn't licensed for horses either.
