Q:what would the dosage be for dogs?
A:Dosage instructions are given by the prescribing veterinarian. Please discuss with your veterinarian to see what the appropriate dose would be for your pet.
Q:Can I still give my cat this when the bottle states its expired on 12/31/14? This bottle was compounded with "tuna" flavoring. It's a little over 3 months expired. I know with human meds, it's ok to take.
A:VetRxDirect does not recommend administering any drug product beyond the stated expiration date. Follow up with your veterinarian if your cat is experiencing the same symptoms when the original prescription was filled to determine if compounded metronidazole suspension is still the recommended therapy.
Q:Hello I know this might seem like a weird question but I'm not sure what is the proper world. But do this medicine come with the little measurement tube feeder???????
A:Yes, a syringe is sent along with the medication.
Q:My cat is about 11.5 # and was prescribed 1/4 of a 250 mg tab twice a day. What would be the equivalent liquid to administer per dose - 1 ml ? 2 ml? Thanks
Q:IS $0.89 PER BOTTLE OR PER DOSE. HOW MUCH LIQUID IS IN A BOTTLE AN WHATS THE PRICE?
