10 week old toy Australian Shepard that weighs about 5lbs.

Customer Question

10 week old toy Australian Shepard that weighs about 5lbs. We started giving it safe guard 4 canine dewormer (fenbendazole granules 22.2% 222mg/g). Directions say to give it for three days, 1mg per day for a 10lb puppy. Our pup was given 1/2 pack over 24 hours before giving second treatment of 1/2 a pack. Puppy is now acting drunk. Staggering, can barely move, shaking. What should we do?
