Lasts for 14 days and no more battles with pills! review by Michael and Cathy on 9/30/2016
Our 26 year old warmblood gelding was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease two years ago. He was prescribed one daily tablet of Pergolide, which at first we could hide in an apple to administer. After about a year on Pergolide he would detect and refuse to eat Pergolide in an apple, in a drilled-out carrot or hidden in grain, in addition to spitting out any tablet that you managed to sneak into his mouth. Once he stopped eating Pergolide his Cushing’s-related frequent urination problems escalated. We were greatly relieved when we learned that BET Pharm was producing the Cushing’s medication Cabergoline in a slow-release intramuscular injectable form. Each injection is small, only 1 ml, and lasts our horse for 14 days. We alternate his intramuscular shots from one side of his neck to the other and have seen no signs of irritation at the injection site. We have been using BET Pharm’s injectable BioRelease Cabergoline for 9 months and have found that it has controlled our horse’s Cushing’s symptoms equally as well as Pergolide, while only needing to be administered twice a month, rather than daily. Most importantly our senior horse can enjoy his food and the time we spend with him without the daily battle to administer pills.
