Novartis has announced that it will begin taking orders and shipping Sentinel starting April 4, 2013. As reported over a year ago (see here) in January of 2012, Novartis suspended production on a number of leading products in connection with manufacturing errors with several of its human product lines. Novartis announced in January of this year that it had begun preproduction testing on Sentinel. Before production was halted, Sentinel was a market-leading veterinary medication.
Consumers should consult with their veterinarian before considering any change from an existing treatment to Sentinel. Sentinel is a prescription product that requires a written prescription from a veterinarian. VetDepot expects it will have Sentinel available for valid orders shortly after Novartis begins shipments next week.
