[FH] Re: Hello to All
- Hello Pam: We have the enalapril compounded at a local regular
pharmacy and they do a great job. It smells & looks just like tuna
juice! The other (animal) pharmacy is called Animal Pharm, 76 A
Front Street, Scituate, MA 02066. Phone 781-544-3010. When Gus sees
me coming w/ the syringe 2x day, he actually gets excited! He never
runs away like he used to when we first started all of his meds and
both were pills. I used to cry after pilling him because I felt like
he hated me. Now it's so different.
Good luck, Steph
