Charlie is 1 yr...

Charlie is 1 yr old multiple. He accidentally received 2 doses of Trifexis at about 9 am today. Now he is very lethargic, agitated : can't get comfortable. Could it be related to the med?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

I yr old 8 lb Maltipoo

Veterinarian's Assistant: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?

1 yr old 8 lb Maltipoo.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help Charlie. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Charlie?

No. He has been very hhealthy
