Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question 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 in each notch?
2- Was he out of it before you gave him the panacur?
3- How long has it been since you gave him the panacur?

There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.


Customer: replied 3 years ago.

1 50 mg


2 no he was ok


about 10.00 pm


 


he spat a bit of it out and some came out when I realised and wiped his mouth out straight away

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 3 years ago.
1- So, he got a total of 250mg?
2- How much does he weigh?
3- Can you take his rectal temperature?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

1 yes but spat some out quite a bit


2 about 625 grams


3 no thermometer


he is breathing steadily and deeply he feels about right temp to the touch

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 3 years ago.
Friend, panacur is a very safe medication, unlikely for any systemic toxicity to occur as the medication is not absorbed very well from the gastrointestinal tract. Usually with over dose the most common signs we see are vomiting and diarrhea. All you can do at home tonight is supportive care of keeping him warm, force feed a bland diet; if he is not better by the morning follow up with family veterinarian for a hands on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
