Expired medication

Post by mr_frisky » Sun Jul 02, 2017 7:08 pm

Anyone use flea treatment past the expiry date on the tube? My advocate has a june 17 expiry date (2 days ago). Presumably it would be ok to use for a week or so still?

Two days seems fine to me. I'd still use it. It would be different if it was a year old!

Think I will. It's been stored in a dark place.

I suspect the worst that could happen would be some loss of effectiveness
