Customer Question

My vet prescribed PPM Triwormer Canine for my dog that has hookworms. The first dosage of two pills was given ten days ago, and I'm supposed to give him the other two pills today. His first dosage caused him to be sick (lethargic, no appetite) for two days, and now I'm hesitant to give him the second dosage. Does this medicine typically cause this reaction? Should I give him the second dosage? Is it likely that he will get sick again?
