Hello again,

JACUSTOMER-lz8xnqpk- :

Hi

Scott Nimmo :

That is just a general nutritional supplement, I am no doctor so of course you should consult one at once if you are concerned in any way. But put it this way, if I had swallowed just one of these capsules I would not lose a wink of sleep over it.

JACUSTOMER-lz8xnqpk- :

Thanks, was pretty sure ther was nothing to worry about but thought i should check.

Scott Nimmo :

It is highly likely there are many human nutritional supplements with much the same constituents and the concentrations in the canine variety would be much less ....

Scott Nimmo :

Dog products like this are usually manufactured to the same stringent quality as human products.

JACUSTOMER-lz8xnqpk- :

Thanks again, just been having a few laughs with the wife about it now, such as can't stop scratching my ear now!

Scott Nimmo :

Just watch you don't start chasing cats :-)

Scott Nimmo :

Regards,

Scott Nimmo :

Scott

JACUSTOMER-lz8xnqpk- :

Lol, have a great day, thanks.

Scott Nimmo :

No problem, glad to have advised you ...
