Mini Doxie, Rosebud diagnosis 1yr ago. On Trilostane 30 mg. would like to know an inexpensive online pharmacy to buy med. She is currently taking the compound form. I must say she is doing extremely well, however her Vet and I prefer the manufactured med. We are concerned with side affects of compound. I am retired, cost of med is a hardship.
Thanks to everyone in advance, Susan Holmes:)

Hi and welcome to you and Rosebud, I love the name :)

We are glad to hear Rosebud is doing so well on her Trilostane. I was just wondering why if she is doing so well, why change ?

There will be many that will come by to welcome you and Rosebud :)

Hi Susan,

I have approved your membership so that all your replies will be seen right away.

Welcome to you and Rosebud, so sorry for the reasons that brought you here but glad you found us.

Many members have the Cushing medication compounded, Diamondback and Roadrunner are two that I can think of off the top of my head but here is a link to a thread where this is discussed more: http://www.k9cushings.com/forum/showthread.php?t=385&highlight=compounding+pharmacies

Also here is a link that has information regarding how to save money on the ACTH stim test: http://www.k9cushings.com/forum/showpost.php?p=69247&postcount=61

Could you do us a favor and tell us more about sweet Rosebud? Such as her weight and the dose of Trilostane she is on? Is she taking any other herbs/supplements/medicines? Has she had a recent ACTH stim test done, and if so, could you post those results for us?

Please know we will help in any way we can so do not hesitate to ask any and all questions.

Love and hugs, Lori

Hello and Welcome Susan and Rosebud,
I use Diamondback Drugs. They are an on-line Animal pharmacy. Yes, Diamondback all the way!!!!!!!! I use them, I love them, they are wonderful! They only have the compounded version. I'm not sure the cheapest place to buy the brand name Vetoryl. Others will know though. I don't buy any meds from my vet. They are far more expensive! If it's a regular prescription like an antibiotic or something like that, I get written script and take it to Walmart or Costco. Walmart and Costco do not carry Trilostane as of yet.

Hugs,
Kathy

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I don't buy vetoryl online but just looking it up, allvetmd has 30 pills, 30mg for $55.90 I can't really recommend as I haven't used them.

Fosters and Smith is 59.70 for 30 count.

This is all the brand name vetoryl and not the compounded trilostane. Both of those should be cheaper than the vets sell them for.

I wanted to welcome you. Sorry to hear about the troubles your baby has. Hope it all gets worked out. I buy from Lambert Veterinary Supplies online. If you get two boxes at once no shipping. There is a vet on staff, and you get a drug rep. Ask for Nancy she is really nice, and helpful. Good luck to you. Blessings

I use SVP Compounding Pharmacy (http://www.svpmeds.net/_index.php) (in TX) for trilostane. Not sure cost on 30 mg. but a 30-day supply of 10 mg chewables is $25.28 + $7.75 shipping. I've used them for a couple of years for another med for my dog and been happy with them.

I have never heard of chewable Trilostane? Are you positive these are chewable?

Yes Ladies, some compounders do offer trilostane in chewable form ;). I just checked the website for SVP, and they are one who do so.

Wow you learn something new every day on here. That is weird because with Vetoryl, Dechra told me to make sure she does not even puncture the capsule, but now they have a chewable/ Go Figure!

Patti, Dechra does not make brandname Vetoryl in a chewable form -- Dechra makes only the capsules (filled with powder) with which you are familiar.

The chewable tablets are compounded products that are prepared from raw chemicals that the compounders purchase themselves. They are not brandname Vetoryl. Some compounding pharmacies only supply their own trilostane product in a capsule form that is similar to Vetoryl. Other compounders sell different forms such as the chewables or a liquid suspension. As to whether or not there are any issues associated with these differing forms of the drug, I cannot tell you. Since compounded trilostane is not tested nor regulated in the same manner as brandname Vetory, I am unaware of any comparisons of efficacy that would be available for public review.
