    Nah, my pup was in a medium from the start. Should be fine. Might be a bit big for the ride home in the car though, I'd use something smaller or have a passenger hold onto him.

    Humans often take B12 as it increases alertness - if you look at most energy drinks they are loaded with b12 and caffeine. I think it would be quite useless for a dog.
