I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Bear's behavior was likely due to the cafffeine in that product which will cause agitation at doses of 9 mg/lb. The ingredient list in the SST pill appears to be proprietary. I couldn't locate the amount of caffeine in each pill. May I have an update on Bear, please?
