Hello there. My name is***** and I am sorry to hear about your girl. That is good that the estrogen is working pretty much most of the time. With intensive running she may be stressing her body and putting herself into a more relaxed state than all the other time and beyond a state that the current medication is working. I would discuss adding in a second medication called proin which can definitely help the situation and fix the problem. The other option would be to switching to a daily estrogen supplement called Incurin. This sometimes works better for the harder cases that are not responding to the weekly estrogen supplements. So i would discuss both these options with your vet and see which option is best for your girl at this point and time. The Incurin daily dosage may be a little more cost effective than the Proin and estrogen supplement but your vet will be able to help you with these options.

I hope this helps and I hope this makes sense. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions or concerns. I would be happy to help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for my time.

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
