Sammy will only eat this drug if I cut it in quarter pieces and hide it in a beef treat. It may be due to the nasal cancer changing his taste buds, or he is just really picky.
ProsEasy to fill this order.
ConsHe does seem to suffer from one of the side-effects which is dizziness. So look out for sign of that in your pet.
