HI there,

I am sorry to hear that your puppy has worms. To answer your question, yes you can treat with panacea despite diarrhea. Was this prescribed by your veterinarian?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No it was not.
Expert:  Dr. Ellie replied 11 months ago.

Using the proper dosage is important, although panacur has a wide safety margin, using the right dose and having a veterinarian examine Delilah can make sure that the worms are killed and the dog is being treated for the proper worms. There are some worms that Panacur will not kill. Do you know what kind of worm they are?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Long white skinny. She is going to vet within next few days for more shots and another stool sample. And from previous pets its 1 gram per 10 lbs? Feel free to correct me if i am wrong
Expert:  Dr. Ellie replied 11 months ago.

I use a dose of 50 milligrams per kilogram, the actual amount you will give depends on the concentration and formulation of the product you are giving as it comes in a powder and liquid form.

I'm just following up on our conversation about your pet. How is everything going?
