How Long Will A Bottle Last?
A one fluid ounce
bottle will serve most cats and small dogs one month. Dogs over 30 lbs. will
likely require two ounces or more per month. Because these products contain no
synthetic preservatives and have a shelf life of less than two years, we
encourage you to buy only what you need for a few months. To determine a more
exact feeding amount and to establish duration and frequency of feeding, we
encourage you to consult a holistic veterinarian.
