Hello, Taylor and welcome!

Thanks for requesting me to answer your question about Paws.

My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.

Do you know the name of the wormer?

When was it given and how much was given?

Was the wormer given as a preventative or does your kitty have worms? If so, what kind of worms?

Is Paws breathing normally and is he able to walk?

Thanks for all your additional details.
Cher

The name of the wormer was pro sense and the dosage was enough for two kittens.It was given about 12 pm this afternoon.He does not have worms.He is able to breath normally but he cannot move.

Hi again, Taylor and thanks for your helpful reply.

The drug in Prosense is piperazine and it is one of the older de-wormers for roundworms. Side effects can include loss of appetite, vomiting and/or diarrhea and in some pets, loss of balance or coordination. If your father gave a double dose of this dewormer to Paws and now he is not able to move on his own, I would consider this an emergency. If your vet is closed, he needs to be evaluated in person by an ER vet center and treated.

If you're not sure where your closest ER vet is located, you can check at this site by entering your zipcode: http://www.vetlocator.com/ Enter your zipcode in the middle square that says 'Pet Emergencies".

I hope all will be well with Paws once he is seen and treated!

If you need any additional information or clarification, simply 'Reply' back before rating and I will be happy to help with any follow up questions.

If you found my answer helpful, a Positive rating and Positive feedback on the survey, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Laughing

If you would like to request me to answer any new, future questions, please begin your post with "For Cher Only" and I will respond as soon as possible.

Warmest regards,
Cher

  • You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again! Jack's Mom Tuscon, AZ
  • The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful. Tracy Grayson, LA
  • My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on! Debbie USA
  • I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there. Alice H. Jacksonville, Fl.
  • Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help. Mary C. Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
