hi, did your bio say you went to ucdavis? did you know my late uncle dr calvin schwabe?
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 months ago.

No, Laura. If you had put the dog product on the cat, instead, your cat might have been harmed by the higher amount of moxidectin in the dog product.

i don't need to worry about the dog?
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 months ago.

I never met Dr. Schwabe although he was there when I was. (I'm old!) Your dog will remain well. No need to repeat dosing on your dog.
