1lb. chi pup givven double dose of worm medicine.

Hello and thank you for asking your question. My name isXXXXX will try to help.

Can you tell me how much Pixie weighs and the name of the worm medication?

How long ago did you give it?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Pixie is 2 mos. old weights 1.1 lbs. The med has no name on it, is a white creamy med from vet they are now closed. gave it to her about 2 hrs ago.

Are you suppose to give it for three days in a row? Does pancur *fenbendazole" sound familiar? What kind of worms did she have?

Is it white or yellowish?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

3 days in row...this was to be 2nd dose no name for is white

Ok, that is most likely panacur. I looked up the toxic level and dogs were given 100, yes 100, times the recommended dose and no problems were seen. It is very safe. I would give her a meal just to be safe. You should give it three days in a row so if you were suppose to give another dose tomorrow, I would do that.

The other dewormer we use in a puppy is strongid. That one is definitely yellow and that one has a high margin of safety as well.

I hope this helps.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
