  • DO NOT give your pet more medicine than directed. 
  • DO NOT give your pet medicine more often than prescribed. 
  • Try not to miss giving any doses.

 

If I miss a dose, what do I do?

If you miss a dose, give it to your pet as soon as possible. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose, then continue with the regular dosing schedule. Do not give your pet two doses at once.
