    good product without additional active ingredients

    By marathonman on Jul 24, 2021

    As described. Good dewormer, we knew what we wanted and this product filled the bill. received the product in a timely fashion and were not disappointed. Ridiculous to require a fifty word review for a well known simple dewormer--waste of my time and yours just to meet the needs of an algorithm. This is a total unnecessary waste of my time to provide no additional useful information .
