Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is***** am sorry to hear Waylon is sick. Unfortunately, I do not think that interceptor was the cause of his signs. This drug is pretty innocuous and usually does not cause problems in dogs. To be sure, though, you can call Novartis free of charge to report the problem and talk with their customer service representatives. Their customer service phone number should be on the Interceptor box.
There are many other causes for dogs drooling and being jittery. Is Waylon eating ok? Any vomiting or diarrhea? Any change in gum color? I would also consider fever, an infection of some sort (bladder, especially), liver or kidney problems or a possible toxin besides Interceptor. I would recommend taking him to your regular veterinarian soon if he does not improve. They may want to run blood work or take x-rays.
Good luck to you and Waylon,
I hope this answer helps you. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

Hi, How is Waylon doing? Is he feeling better? Is he still panting or drooling? Do you have any more questions for me?
