Please don't be alarmed. I might dose a dog with 100X the amount of ivermectin in that product when treating manges. The other ingredient - pyrantel - has a moderate range of safety. Dosages of up to 7X recommended for pyrantel generally result in no toxic reaction. I wouldn't induce emesis or treat in any manner. You might see transient GI distress as evidenced by inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea from ingesting so much of an unusual "food" but Annie wasn't intoxicated.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
