It is therefore very important to administer it as prescribed and completely, because if you do not, you may be contributing to antibiotic resistance. In fact, even if your pet no longer presents clinical signs, some bacteria may remain and develop into another infection. Then your pet will have to take another antibiotic, because the bacteria will have become resistant to this one. Respect the expiration date of the product because an expired product may be less effective or potentially dangerous for the health of your pet.
