Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.What mg strength was the Panacur?

Thank you, ***** ***** just checking for you now.
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
It says 100mg Fenbendazole per ml
Thank you , I know the one.
Luckily this wormer is a very safe wormer and we would not expect toxicity at the dose given.
Monitor closely for any signs such as vomiting or lethargy but the puppy should be absolutely fine.

Ah thank goodness. I will monitor her throughout the night. She did seem to be panting more, heart going faster but you have reassured me. Thank you
As I say, it is a very safe medicine and we wouldn't expect an issue at the dose she had. Fingers crossed she has a restful night.
