Important Announcement about
As of July 1, 2005, Dr. Ed Plotka will have officially retired from producing MGA implants for the AZA Wildlife Contraception Center. Over the years, Dr. Plotka has donated a great deal of time and money to this program, of which he has been instrumental in developing. We are greatly indebted to him, and wish him all the best!
MGA implants will now be produced by the Zoopharm division of Wildlife Pharmaceuticals. Due to this change, there will be a cost associated with the implant to defray production expenses. As of July 1, 2005, MGA implants will cost $25/gram (for example, a 4-gram implant would cost $100).
Ordering of MGA implants will now require a veterinary prescription with an authorization number acquired from the Wildlife Contraception Center Program Coordinator. To determine the necessary dosages and for authorization for ordering, please contact Sally Boutelle, Program Coordinator, at 314-781-0900 ext. 384; Fax: 314-768-5454. firstname.lastname@example.org; www.stlzoo.org/contraception.
