Is the medication still ok if I didn't refrigerate it for 2 days??
Atenolol suspension (compounded) provided by VetRxDirect does not require refrigeration as it is compounded with a corn oil vehicle and does not contain water. An atenolol suspension compounded by another pharmacy may require refrigeration depending on the formulation. It is recommended to keep the product out of direct sunlight and always shake well before administering it to your pet. Please follow the appropriate expiratory date that is labeled on your product to increase the best possible outcomes for your pet.Verified Answer
