The manufactor of the dog-oil is surprised and extremely proud as he thinks he has found the perfect condition of the oil... and the only person who knows the terrible secret of it is his own son. It was he who added a new component that is extremely unusual for any medicine. Read the 'Oil of Dog' and you will know what the secret component is!
