Hi: I received a bottle of interferon from my vet. He told me it was a 90 day supply but it says discard after 30 days on the bottle. I know many posts have said that you draw it up into syringes and then freeze and I know it doesn't last long.  I'm guessing I need to do that but my vet told

I have not used Revolution on Wolfie. Wolfie is still acting himself, is eating fine but he is definitely getting weaker in the back legs. It's really hard to see because I don't think things are going to get better. He has food and litter on the main floor but is still choosing to do
