I gave our 12 week old sprocker puppy, 5.5 kg, a single dose

Resolved Question:

I gave our 12 week old sprocker puppy, 5.5 kg, a single dose of one sachet of panacur, rather than dividing it onto three days.
Could this be a problem?

Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How many milligrams or grams was in the sachet?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
4.5 gm
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Sorry 4.5 mg
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 7 months ago.

It could not be a total of 4.5mg, the dose for panacur starts at 50mg/kg.

Was the panacur for her and you were to divide it to be given in 3 days, correct?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 7 months ago.

Friend, panacur is a very safe medication; dogs can tolerate up to 100 times the recommended dose. She might develop vomiting or diarrhea otherwise very likely she is going to be okay. I would keep an eye on her for the next 24 hours, if she develops vomiting or diarrhea this is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium.

2- No food or water for 4-6 hours. Need to give her gastrointestinal tract time to rest.

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 7 months ago.

3- After 4-6 hours offer a small amount of water. If no vomiting after 1/2 hour offer a bland diet of rice with boiled boneless chicken or ground beef.

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 7 months ago.

4- If she continues to vomit after doing the above she will need to be seen by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
