    Something wrong with tubes
    September 25, 2017
    Last two orders (4 tubes) of this very important medicine squirted out and was wasted. We could not control it until more than half of the tubes were gone. Nothing I did made it better. We almost ran out because of this. Prior to last two orders there were no problems.
    ProsVery good at controlling the mucous in my dogs eyes.
    ConsPackaging problem must be fixed or I will have to find another medication. On next question, medication is awesome I just can't afford to pay the price and have half the medicine go on the floor and also deal with the possibility of running out.
