    Love bites?

    petting over stimulates them and they will bite or scratch, their way of saying I've had enough. when they start flicking their tail or kind of roll over and grab you its time to leave them alone

    I have a concern about my dogs prescription medication.

    personally I wouldn't use outdated meds but it probably won't hurt depending on how long its out of date. I've been using for my generic flea and heartworm meds. Much cheaper and I've been using the generic for years and never had a problem with it.
