Customer Question
Hi there. My dog...

Hi there. My dog has had the runs since Wednesday afternoon. Eating fine, drinking a lot more than normal. Also seems to be itchier than normal.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?

Manny and he's 5. Been on Bravecto for a few years now

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Manny?

Not that I can think of.
