Hello, and thanks for writing in.

This amount of Pyrantel should not cause problems in Gizmo. We usually don't see side effects until a 7 times overdose is given. The dose he received is only 4 times the dose for his size. So, he should be fine, and you should not see any adverse effects from the dose of Pyrantel that was given.

I hope this helps.
