FeralStat contraceptive: ACCD statement

I have several feeders now using this hormone. One group with about 125-150 cats among them have not had a single litter of kittens this year. Other feeders that I can keep track of that have maybe 100-125 total have reported 1 litter. Just read the posts here and get the info to be successful. It is a life saver. 5574  (Nov 6, 2013 | post #337)

FeralStat contraceptive: ACCD statement

Where on fairchildcat.org can I find Dr. Fry's information on using MA? I can't find it but do want to read it. Thanks  (Mar 3, 2013 | post #325)

You can google to find megestrol acetate on non-prescription foreign sites. Any MA strength will do. You would just have to break it down for the dosing protocol you choose. I've seen 2 so far, but have not read the entire site right here. Because only small amounts would be ordered, the product comes into the country relatively smoothly. What we would use for cats is not enough to make customs think we are setting up a resale operation.  (Dec 10, 2012 | post #299)

FeralStat contraceptive: ACCD statement

Have been reading back and noticed a couple posters noting that it seems their treated cats are flea free. A friend said, "Why not? Maybe it makes fleas sterile, too." She could have a point.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #282)

Kathryn41, Can I assume you did not stop during any period of the year, that you dosed 52 weeks a year?  (Oct 30, 2012 | post #276)

PS Additional to above dosing. After the group had a full year of dosing as above, she went to every 3 weeks from then on.  (Oct 28, 2012 | post #274)

FeralStat contraceptive: ACCD statement

James, our local rescuer using this product used 5 mg of megestrol acetate per cat. She crushed it into food. She gave it every 2 weeks for a while (didn't say how long) then down to every 3 weeks. One dose in October and none in Nov and Dec. In 15 years, she has only had one litter of kittens and she thinks she didn't dose enough that year. Her colony has dwindled over time and she has not noticed any side effects. A rescue friendly vet told her that it would not hurt fixed females or males. And she felt any slight risk was far smaller than having 2-3 litters per year, the fighting the maims and spreads diseases. I have not had the time to look back in the posts to glean all the info here. I know I must. -  (Oct 28, 2012 | post #273)

FeralStat contraceptive: ACCD statement

I'm new here but look forward to reading through to learn what I can. This product can be purchased as the generic megestrol acetate buy searching online for sales from other countries. It's too important to let die away. This forum will always be a resource. I've been circulating it, but I do find people as very hesitant. Only when they are overwhelmed with growing feral colonies, kittens coming out their ears, and seeing the sad fate of so many of these cats do they think maybe, just maybe, using this hormone is worthwhile. I noticed all posts are numbered. Wonder if anyone kept track of the numbers that give the basic info on how to dose and use this hormone. If not, I'll be searching through. I do have a dosage given to me by a woman who uses it in my state successfully for 15 years. I assume I would find out anything to different here. Thanks for having this valuable forum.  (Oct 20, 2012 | post #269)
