Customer Question
I gave my 5...

I gave my 5 week old puppy 2.5ml of roundworm med. and I didn't think it was working so I gave him another 2.5ml and now I think I have gave him too much medicine because is wobbling around and falling down like he is drunk..what do I do because I don't have enough money for an overnight stay at the vet. What do I do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No wound

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

He was fine before I administered the extra medicine

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

I hope I can help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your pet's problem, and want to help.

How is Bear acting right now, is he still wobbly? How long ago did you give the medication?

Do you know about how much he weighs?

What is the name of the medication?

Does your bottle say how strong the medicine is, such as 50mg per 1ml?
