Generic CVM Response to Letters

This is representative of the fairly generic responses to their letters being received by horse owners from CVM Ombudsman Marcia Larkins, V.M.D.
"Review and consideration" can take a long time.

"Your email messages to Dr. Sundlof and to the CDER Ombudsman were forwarded to me. Thank you for sharing your story about your horse. The Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is sensitive to your concerns about [horse's name] health and well being. As stated in my previous response to you CVM is very aware of the impact of the withdrawal of the human pergolide product. The future availability of the product to veterinarians for use in the treatment of Equine Cushing's Disease is currently under review and consideration by CVM. The Center understands the importance and sense of urgency among horse owners about this product and is actively working on finding a resolution as soon as possible."
