The value is better at Vet Depot
Being able to order this online at prices much less than what a vet charges is so helpful. My 65 lb dog started at 2mL every 35 days and is now down to 1.8 and doing just fine. So all of his medications come to under $100 per month. Another online vet pharmacy I used to use just suddenly disappeared, so I'm happy VetDepot remains an option for Percorten. I know there is a pill option for Addison's disease, but this is just so much easier and consistent. My 8 year old dog has been on this for 4 years after a brush with death until he was diagnosed. He's in perfect health now.
Using this once every 25 days from our home saves us quite a bit of money on vet bills. It's the same as what the vet uses and is easy to administer.
Percorten-V 25 mg/mL, 4mL Vial
Percorten V is literally a life-saver for dogs with Addisons. It has allowed Daisy to live a relatively normal life. Daisy's vet even lets me give her injections at home (I am a nurse) and then her blood work is monitored as he orders and based on how she is doing.
Beats paying for monthly shots from vet
I started buying this product from Vet Depot about a year ago. I was happy to have found it, since I could save by giving my dog her shots myself. However, I'm disappointed that the price has increased so much. The first time I bought Percorten, it was around $169. But, the price has gone up every time I've bought it. My vet's rate hasn't gone up.
