Reviews about the Kovinan for

Cats Jan : "After reading about the damage to the pills that are given to the cats during the turkeys, I really was really scared. But our veterinarian convinced me that Kovinan was pretty safe. He, they say, is not guaranteed to cause ovarian and uterine tumors, and up to 5 injections can safely be done. But after the fifth one has to decide on the operation. We've been trinking three times. The first time was enough for six months, the second time for eight months. The third has been injected recently and it is not yet clear how long it will take. By the way, buying a whole bottle is not beneficial. In Kiev, in pharmacies there is an opportunity to buy in one dose, which we do. "

Vyacheslav : "When the newborn appeared in the house, the songs walking cats became simply unbearable. The child screams, the cat screams - my endurance has come and we took the cat to the veterinarian. In the hallway, Kovinan whispered in it, and I must say that this injection caused the cat a very unpleasant emotion - it's painful. The doctor told me when it was necessary to repeat the injections and we clearly instructed the grandmother to whom the cat was sent for a temporary stay. As long as our cat is not walking, we think that we will still be stabbed a couple of times, but we will not do more because the veterinarian has warned us that the long-term consequences of such injections are unpredictable. "

Nikita : "Everyone is afraid of hormones and I'm no exception. But just like no one of the cowardly friends personally did not encounter any abnormal podochkoy. Therefore, I am quite calm in the Kovinan. We have a very beautiful cat and a cat that give a gorgeous offspring, but to regulate the frequency of pregnancies, we occasionally climb Kovinan's cat, if we did not do this, frequent pregnancies would deplete the cat. While the flight is normal. "
