Desmopressin cost

Common Questions and Answers about Desmopressin cost


Avatar m tn My vet has recommened if we proceed with this procedure we have to go to a Vet Specialist, and stated cost would start at approx $3000.00 Cdn. We love our dear boy, and do not want him to be in any pain or to suffer...but the starting cost has us concerned, and since he is at risk for bleeding what are the chances for a successfull one time surgery?
Avatar m tn We have a 7 year old colllie just diagnosed with Diabetes Insipetes (nephrogenic). Vet recommends treatment with ddavp eye drop. All the information we can find says that this is "very expensive". Can you give us a ballpark of what this actually means for annual cost of care? What are the implications of leaving this untreated if she has on going access to fresh clean water?
172023 tn?1334675884 Diabetes Insipidus can occur with other diseases and is very controllable with Desmopressin Acetate. The cognitive disorder drug Anipryl can also be helpful for polyuria/polydipsia (excessive drinking and urination) as it's side-effect. Another uncommon possibility is psychogenic polydipsia and just means that your dog may have a behavioral drinking problem.
1363339 tn?1338774653 I don't know if it is something to do with me not taking the medications regularly except the desmopressin. I don’t take it regularly because I find it hard for me to balance out between hypo and hyper. I become tired with it. I always try to minimize stress as much as possible, laugh as much as possible, because I know stress make this disease worse and I’ve experienced it quite well if I got stressed out.

2186126 tn?1384961026 So many of you are so nice to your doggies. We had our dog, age 12, shitzu, take Vetoryl, for the first 6 months after diagnosis but then decided based on cost to let him go "cold turkey." He basically only gets up now to drink, eat or pee. My kids have several times commented that they think he might be dead. It is sad and we may start to shell out for the medication again. My only question is whether others have had to have expensive testing done every year to check levels.
Avatar m tn Thank you for your prompt reply (and very sorry for your numerous health problems). My DH has no pituitary gland--the NS said "it looked like balsa wood". He is on 4 hormones, but not growth hormone (which he declined due to cost). He takes his hormones & makes all his appointments faithfully. He never complains and is able to work as a computer programmer. The most recent MRI was December. He had neurocog. testing in Jan.
