Resolved Question:

MY VET GAVE ME OVABAN FOR MY MALE CAT. WHAT IS THIS DRUG FOR?

Hello, Zbeemer

 

Ovaban is a hormonal drug. It has anti-estrogen properties and is similar to the female hormone progesterone naturally made in the body. This is commonly used to control the heat cycle in females dogs.

 

It does have steroidal effects though and is used in cats to treat certain skin problems. So I am sure it is for the lip ulcer he has.
