cannot find

I am looking to buy Thiola drug for my dog who gets severe kidney stones. It is a prescription used to cotrol the rate of cystine solidification and excretion in the disease cystinunria. It also goes buy the name,Tiopronin. I can not find it any where! If anyone knows where I might find it to buy, it would be a great help! ## I have also been looking at Thiola for my dog. Did you ever find anything? ## I just got Thiola 100 mg tablets from Wedgewood pharmacy in NJ. 1-800-331-8272. As of 9/11/09 their source had 12 bottles in stock. It's a little expensive @ 100 bucks for 100 pills but well worth it. You'll need a script from your vet to go to them.

Cystine stones

Please let me know of any other alternatives other than Thiola. Always on backorder. Thanks. ## Sorry, I am not sure what would be a direct replacement. The monograph does say it is a very rare substance, so I would recommend speaking to your doctor or a pharmacist, they will have a better idea of what can be used instead that would help you.
