In Reply to: Is medication for Addison's disese available for home use? posted by Reid and Verna on April 30, 2000 at 14:41:46:
: My wife and I have a female Rottweiler that was just diagnosed with Addison's disese. Although we were relieved she had a treatable disease, we just found out the treatment is going to cost between $100- $150 a mnoth. We are shocked about the cost of treatment and want to treat our dog because she is such a sweet girl and part of our family but we are really weighing the cost of treating our dog. If I could order medication cheaper and administer it at home, then it would eliminate any doubt about treating her Addison's. If anybody knows if the medication is available please send us an e-mail. thank you.
Have you joined the k9 addisons group? their at egroups/onelist .com. It is up to your vet rather or not he will let you give her shots at home. only one company, novartis makes DOCP and they only sell to vets. perhaps you could try florinef, its a pill and you can get them compounded cheaper.
