I'm having a hard time finding these. I called my vet and they said they stopped carrying them and that it was by prescription only. I don't want to go to just any website that claims to carry them. I tried Amazon, but they are currently unavailable. eBay doesn't have any, but showed some sponsored links of places that carry it. I went there, and they are unavailable as well. How effective will an over-the-counter steroid cream (Cortaid) with aloe or Eucerin cream be on the irritated areas of her belly (at least until I can find the pledgets)? The vet recommended the creams, but I prefer the pledgets based on what I heard about them.
