Questions and Answers
What is the amount of PAC per serving (in mg)?
can I give this product to my dog?
Doe it has any gelatin?
Sorry. I do not know what PAC is. I have used Actifruit daily for over 9 years and am very satisfied.
I would not and the manufacturer won’t tell you about off label use either. I would not trust a member of the public’s opinion when it comes to the welfare of your pet. Best idea is show the ingredient list to a vet and ask their opinion. There are a lot of things that are bad for dogs we don’t know about.
no, gelatin is not listed as an ingredient
