I have heard that this drug can have side effects, how will this affect my pet?
All medicines have potential side effects but this does not mean your pet has a high risk of experiencing them. If you notice anything unusual contact your vet immediately.
Possible drug interactions
Ensure your vet is aware of any other medication you are giving your pet. Drug interaction is not uncommon when two differing medications are prescribed.
