I'd normally ask Dr Auger about this, but not sure where he is nowadays. My Squirt got her second deslorelin implant this past fall, but she's not for the first time in years showing symptoms. Tail fur is almost gone, and she's lethargic and somewhat itchy. I guess the implant isn't working. Anyone else have similar experiences with the second implant? Mine were two years apart as per Dr Auger's direction (although some say this was too long, but she wasn't symptomatic when she got the second one)

My Pepsi is on his second implant and it's still helping, although his fur has gotten thinner and coarser as the years go by.  The unfortunate truth is this is not a cure, it only delays the effects, so there will come a day where the implant alone will not be able to counter the effects of the growing tumour.

If she continues to be lethargic and itchy, I would suggest a vet visit to rule out other possible issues.
