Personally, without the name, without the expiration date I'd toss it.

Why not? Was it on the bottle originally? I hope so. I'd hate think
that there wasn't a name or expiration date. If there wasn't, is this
normal for all medications of any kind that come from this clinic? I
can't speak for other states, but in this state antiparasitics aren't a
prescription, so much of the requirements don't apply to them as
they do for prescriptions. But it doesn't stop me from wondering
why the information isn't on your bottle.

Without a veterinarians saying that it's still good....I'd ditch the stuff.
Why not give your clinic a call and ask them, who'd know better
than they? ;-)
