Prolia stays in a patient’s system for only a finite period of time, and Siris says this reversibility could be one appeal. “At the end of six months, if you don’t get another dose, it’s gone. So if you felt you didn’t want to use this approach, it’s gone after the six months after the dose is given. It doesn’t linger in the bone for extended periods, which some people have worried about in the past. Bisphosphonates linger in bone long after you stop them, whereas this [drug] is gone in six months,” explains Siris.
Some cats are happy lying or sitting on your lap while you administer the injection. However, you should place a towel or blanket across your lap to avoid getting scratched in case your cat tries to jump down. Some cats do better on a smooth surface, such as a table. Placing the cat on top of the washing machine can simulate the smooth metal table at the veterinarian’s office, encouraging the cat to remain still during the procedure. You may find it easier still if you have a partner to help: One person can hold the cat while the other gives the injection.
