Hoping there’s a vet on here or anyone who may have done similar and can reassure us!
Accidentally just given our dog a chewable Milbemax worming tablet that was out of date. Meant to give her Bravecto for fleas but it was on a different place in the cupboard to the other pet stuff so just picked up the Milbemax assuming that was the flea tablet! Didn’t notice until after she’d eaten it that it was out of date and then noticed it wasn’t even the flea one anyway!
Will she be okay that it was out of date and also, is it okay to give her the Bravecto now or not?
Hello, I'm no expert, but I don't think there's a problem. I think the best before dates on pet medicine are there for the same reason as human meds. Medicine just looses potency after a while, and may not work as well after a certain time. I don't think that it becomes dangerous to take.
I know this is a few days old but my at gave me out of date, by almost a year, meds for my pet for free. She said they won't be any less effective they just aren't allowed to sell them after the date! So should be fine.
