No longer available through Wedgewood Pharmacy, which was the go-to for every vet I’ve been able to reach. Does anyone have any leads?
Did you try Rood and Riddle’s pharmacy?
They have the injectable cisplatin, but not the beads.
This happened when my vet was looking and then miraculously wedgewood had them again. It was a few months later. They seem to come on and off the market.
The manufacturer (Royer) is running a clinical trial. Your vet may be able to enroll your horse if they contact them. Last I heard they said they are looking for a new distributor but right now they are not available for purchase.
Too lazy to Google, what is this and what is it used for?
Chemotherapy for skin tumors like sarcoids and melanomas.
We used regular injectable cisplatin mixed in clear sesame oil, after allowing a few weeks for healing after using a few weeks of imiquimod cream. There was an article on cisplatin that I googled, that explained how to mix it. My horse had a tumor that was either a sarcoid or a neurofibrosarcoma, according to the pathologist. The tumor has not recurred.
